Horizon School Division Turns Five  (January 12/2011)

Comments from Shirley Allan, Horizon School Division Board Chair

“It’s hard to believe that five years ago six school divisions came together to form Horizon. Since that merger we have experienced growing pains, but more importantly we have experienced great accomplishments, making Horizon School Division a true success story.

We could not have realized this success without the commitment of our entire staff. The hard work and dedication of our staff at the Lanigan, Humboldt and Wadena offices is commendable. The passion of our school staff and SCC members for providing a quality education and the best possible learning environments for our students is outstanding. The energetic leadership of our Superintendents and Senior Administrators is admirable and the commitment to Horizon by Board members is valued.

I thank everyone for contributing to five successful years. Happy Birthday Horizon School Division!”

Play Safe in the Snow (January 4/2011)
Now that the snow is here, children are anxious to go tobogganing and sledding.
Tips to reduce the risk of injury …
Snow should be packed but not icy.
Long flat slope should be used to slow down the sled.
Examine the area to avoid hazards and traffic.
Dress warmly.
Do not sled head first or standing up.
Incline of hill should not be steep.
No trailing scarves, mitten cords or loose clothing.  Drawstrings on hoods and coats tied securely.  Wear a bicycle helmet.
Good condition of sled is important – no loose parts, jagged edges or splinters.
