Food Drive is Underway

Students and staff at Adams are conducting a food drive to help support families in our school community who may not have enough to eat over the Winter Break. When schools is not in session many students who depend on breakfast and lunch programs go without.

Our goal is to provide a box of healthy, non-perishable, staple foods to 25 Adams families to fill their cupboards for those two weeks.

Please bring in donations of non-perishable, unopened cans, boxes and bags of food that will help a family stretch their dollars this holiday season.

Suggested items to donate:

Canned fruits, vegetables and beans
Canned soups, chili, broth and stews
Canned meats, tuna, salmon
Peanut butter
Boxed pasta, soup mixes,
Boxes of cereal, oatmeal, cream of wheat
Boxes of snack foods, granola bars, fruit leather, dried fruit
Pasta sauce, salad dressing
Sealed bags (not bulk) of rice, dried beans, lentils,
Vegetable oils
Condiments, ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, soy sauce, salad dressings
Boxed dinners and side dishes

Also – If you would like to make a cash donation, all proceeds will be used to support this project to help provide food for families in the Adams community. Our Adams Student Leadership team will research the best prices and make bulk purchases to stretch dollars.

If you have questions or would like to discuss how you can support this worthwhile project, please call or email Principal Kevin.

Wondering About Winter Weather?

When winter weather makes conditions hazardous, schools may be closed or delayed or buses may use snow routes. School districts decide early in the morning whether there is a need to change the school schedule or bus routes. These decisions are made districtwide and are the same for every 4J school.

There are several ways to find out if there is a change on snowy or icy days:

Text-message alerts via Twitter — sign up through Twitter or just text FOLLOW 4JWEATHER to 40404
4J website,
KRVM 91.9 FM
Other radio and television news stations

If there is a school closure or other change, the school district will announce it before 6:30 a.m. If schools and buses are on their regular schedule, there will NOT be an announcement.

Parents of students who ride school buses that have alternate snow routes have been informed of what to do. Snow route information is available on the snow routes page.

If school is in session, families are encouraged to consider road conditions in their areas and make their own decisions based on safety. Parents’ individual decisions about school attendance will be honored.

Peanut and Tree Nut Awareness Reminder

Please remember that we have many students with life threatening food allergies at Adams. While we are not a peanut and nut free school—we are an allergy aware school.

Please do not send peanuts and nut products on field trips. There are many foods that containn nut and byproducts or are processed in a facility that also processes nuts. Even a trace amount can be dangerous for many of our students. A field trip is an extension of the classroom and we need to do everything we can to make sure all of our students safe and healthy.

If you do send your child with nut products in his or her lunch, we have designated tables for them in the cafeteria.
