Harvest Hope Food Drive Collection

During the week of November 9-13, Ben Lippen School collected canned goods and non-perishable items for Harvest Hope Food Bank. Even though there was friendly competition among each division (lower school, upper school grades 6-8, upper school grades 9-12), the goal was to work together as a school to collect  as many items as possible for the food bank.

Important Message & Details for Next Week From Our Headmaster

Dear Ben Lippen Family,

I am including with this communication the school schedule for next Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (October 12-14), as we now know it. Please note that we are not following Richland District One's schedule for Monday.

Monday and Tuesday will be delayed-start, full-days, and Wednesday will be normal-start, half-day. Because of the boil water notification, we are asking all families to send their children to school with plenty of water to drink during the day and with a sack lunch. This will of course be changed once our water system is back to normal. Unfortunately, it appears that the alternate routes to school may be with us for a while.
