Hello, Raider families.  I wanted to let you know that we’ll be dismissing early on Friday, November 17 to allow students, staff, and families some flexibility to attend the Iowa Class 2A State Championship football game.  Please plan on the following dismissal time:

  • Mary Welsh Elementary, 10:50 a.m.

  • Jr./Sr. High School, 11:00 a.m.




We will be offering a sack lunch for any student that would like a lunch, whether they plan to go to the game or are heading home at dismissal time.  The lunch will consist of the following:

  • Turkey and cheese sandwich

  • Chips

  • Carrots

  • Applesauce cup

  • Milk

Students may take their lunch on the bus, provided they keep the bus clean.


If you would like your child to have a sack lunch prepared for them, we’ll take a count on WEDNESDAY morning.  Please visit with your child about whether or not they should ask for a school lunch before Wednesday.


The jr./sr. high school will have a pep assembly at 8:40 a.m., prior to the team’s departure.  Members of the public are welcome to attend the pep assembly.


We will offer a pep bus for students to the game on Friday as well.  The cost of the bus is $5.00 per student, plus the cost of the game ticket, $10.00.  The pep bus is available for all students, but students in 6th grade or under must be accompanied by an adult.  


Tickets can be purchased at the UNIDome (general seating), at the jr./sr. high school office, and online, as well.  To purchase tickets online, follow these directions:

  • Go the following link: https://unitix.uni.edu

  • Click on “Buy Tickets.”

  • Click on “Presales/Promotions.”

  • Enter the promotional code RAIDERS.  

  • You’ll select the number of tickets you need on the next page (we play in session #3), and you can follow the prompts to purchase your tickets from there.   


There will NOT be a new t-shirt sale for this game.  


I understand this change in schedule will cause some potential inconvenience, or in some cases, it might not provide enough flexibility.  I will write a bit more about things we consider when making a decision like this in my blog this week.  Thanks, very much, for your flexibility and patience.  We wish our Raider football team the best of luck against Waukon when they play at the UNIDome at 2:00 on Friday.  Thanks, again, for your flexibility, and as always, Go Raiders!
