Superintendent Announcement 4/12

Isabella Milone, News Editor

Here is the most recent announcement from Superintendent Devin Embray:

We continue to move forward as a district. The efforts around our displaced families continues to be how to support them.  The long term recovery committee is going to be meeting next Tuesday to start initial discussions and consider options that could help displaced families bridge the gap between now and when a rebuild could happen in Pacific Junction or surrounding areas.  I will be sharing more about that as I know more.

WATER: The testing has started.  We had tests run in all of our buildings yesterday and the levels of Fluoride were not where they need to be yet.  DNR has also taken samples for bacteria from the treatment plant and other areas and those should be back sometime tomorrow.  We believe it is just a matter of time.  Best guess we would receive a green light sometime early next week.  If all goes well.  We were notified that MUD has been discontinued due to the amount of bottled water available.  We want to give a HUGE shout out to MUD for helping us along the way!

PACIFIC JUNCTION: The pumps inside the city limits are running from what we understand.  However, a re-entry plan has not been finalized as of this writing.  It is my understanding that there will be a Pacific Junction City Council meeting April 15 at 7:00 p.m. at Glenwood City Hall on the square.

DISASTER RELIEF CENTER:  GCSD Central Office is providing the meal tonight at the center, those needing dinner can come and enjoy a Taco Bar!  Grill Masters in conjunction with the Booster Club will be serving dinner on Sunday.  Smoked Brisket and Beans will be the main event.  The center is still in need of volunteers and supplies.  Please see my earlier posts for items, however, if you can volunteer, please contact Kori at 402-960-2465 or Laurie at [email protected]
