He paused and said “did I get you”? And wouldn’t let go of that football!!! Such a great kid and Owen HS coach for bringing all those kids out! Great community!!!! So lucky!

So grateful for these young men and their coach! They made Landon’s day and made me need a tissue.

So amazing!!!

Just as Sophie said, “Mommy’s about to cry!”

Good morning SVMS parents,

We will be operating on a 2-hour delay for students today, March 14, 2018. Carline will begin at 10:20. No before care.

We'd like to allow more time tomorrow for our temperatures to warm-up and allow more sunlight to melt any isolated icy spots in roads and parking lots.

We will continue to evaluate road conditions. If they do not improve, we may close for the day.

As always, make the safest choice for your family and stay safe and warm!

Thank you!

YARD SALE RESCHEDULED:
Due to the amount of snow that this storm has dumped on Black Mountain and the road conditions that come along with the white stuff, we are going to cancel tomorrow's yard sale. We had really hoped to have a way for folks to get some affordable holiday shopping done. However, the New Year can be a great time for shopping too!

We will be storing the donated items and if you still have items to bring, you can either hang on to them or bring them Monday and we will add them to store.

Thank you everyone for this great effort! Mother Nature just won this one!

The official date and details forthcoming.

Stay safe and warm out there!
