The Puxico R-8 School District will be closed on Thursday, January 20, 2022 due to potential road conditions and severe temperatures/windchills. Tonight is one of those tricky situations. Some of you are going to look outside and see nothing, while other areas of the District have a sheen of ice covering paved roadways. With expected temperatures in the teens, there probably won’t be much melting, and the warning for black ice tomorrow morning has been issued. Snow is an easy one to see, ice in the dark on morning bus routes, not so much. It’s never an easy decision to call off school but we are going to play it safe. Tomorrow will be one of our built in snow days. It will NOT be an AMI day. We will post tomorrow about Thursday evening activities as soon as decisions are finalized. Thanks for understanding! Stay warm. Sincerely Cindy Crabb
Puhicah is just around the corner! Information was sent home with candidates this afternoon.
Wednesday, January 19, 2022 School is currently IN session! Local school leaders have been invited to a weather webinar with Paducah at 10 a.m. to look at the expected timing of this afternoon’s event for our area. We will provide an update after that meeting and share out if it is determined the school will be able to stay in session a full day, or if we will need to dismiss early to get our students and staff home safely. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Cindy Crabb

Puxico R-8 School is seeking input on future facility plans. A link is included for a short survey in which we welcome your feedback on the future of the educational environment, specifically Puxico Elementary. You may also contact Puxico Central Office if you would like a paper survey to complete. If you would like to provide an opportunity for a follow up conversation about any ideas or comments you provide, include your name and contact information on the last question of the survey. For question 1, here is a summary of the options: -No Tax Increase Bond Issue - use proceeds to completely refurbish existing elementary with NO plans to build a new structure. -No Tax Increase Bond Issue - use proceeds on a short-term bond issue to make necessary repairs, with plans to replace the elementary with a new structure in 3-5 years with an additional bond issue. -Bond Issue with a .20 cent increase to current .79 debt service levy- This plan brings our current debt service levy to .99 and uses funds to build a new elementary. -No Bond Issue on ballot- This option requires repair costs to come from general operating funds, impacting current educational programs/activities. https://tinyurl.com/5dhnp5eb
