Walters Public School Cancel Class Due To Flu Out Break

Dear Parents:

A decision has been made to cancel classes at Walters Public Schools for the remainder of the week due to an outbreak of flu. Today we had 145 students absent out of an enrolment of 640. That is over 22% of our student population. In addition we have had several teachers out with illness as well. Information from the CDC and State Health Department advised that people that come down with the flu require 5-7 days to get over it. We hope that by cancelling classes the remainder of the week it will give those students time to recuperate and prevent others form contracting thew illness.

We apologize for the inconvenience this might cause any families. The decision was a difficult one to make but our students’ health and safety is always the first priority in these matters. Please check the school website, blued.org for information on extracurricular activities this week. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Senior Citizen Center Honors Past President Linda Neal

Over the years the Senior Citizens Center has been blessed with talented and dedicated leaders. This is especially true of Linda and Carl Neal during Linda Neal’s presidency (2014 to 2018 ) The Senior Citizens Center of Walters has seen many changes. In 2016 when the center lost all funding Linda asked the members to put forth ideas to raise money so expenses could be met. With the help of Cotton-Electric and donations from the Walters community Linda and the members were able to replace the roof and the airconditioner in the building they also purchased a storage building and replaced the kitchen and bathroom floors.

Temple School District Residents:

On February 12, 2019, you will have an opportunity to vote for a bond to renovate the Jr High/Sr High School Building. As many of you know , the school building is 95 years old! Other than a roof or routine maintenance, this building has not seen a bond to do any renovation in at least the last 60 years, most likely never. We have one of the oldest school building in the state.

To keep the proper balance between a safe, comfortable environment where students can learn and teachers can teach and responsible use of local tax payer dollars, we have decided on a $995,000 renovation project. If this passes, it will only increase your current property taxes by 3.2%. That means if you pay $1,000 in property taxes, you will only see and increase of $32.00 assuming all other factors stay the same with valuations and property in the school district.
