Congratulations to the boys basketball team on their victory over Cromwell in the 1st round of playoffs. Super job!
Good Morning, I just want to give everyone a heads up for next week. It looks like both our boys and girls basketball teams will be on the road for their first round play-off games on Monday, March 15th. Game time is at 7:00pm. The protocols that are going to be used are set by the Section. They finance all the tournament games and set ticket prices, etc. The number of tickets that we will be allowed will depend on the size of the venue. The final seeding will take place some time on Saturday, so this will be a quick turnaround time. The tickets will have to be purchased at our high school office on Monday. There will be no walk up sales. The price for a ticket is $8 for adults and also for students. I will send out an email to both boys and girls parents on Saturday once I find out where we are playing and how many tickets that we will be allowed. So, tickets will have to be purchased in the HS office during the day on Monday. The ticket will have to have a name and a phone number on it for possible contact tracing. I will also give the live streaming information as soon as I have it as well. Let me know if you have any questions, but I think that I included everything that I can at this point. Thanks, Bob Staska

The Minnesota Department of Health recommends that all school-age youth returning to school, sports, or extracurricular activities, and their families, get tested for COVID-19 every two weeks through the end of the school year. Testing, plus wearing masks and taking other precautions, such as social distancing and staying home (quarantining) when needed, are some of the best tools we have to prevent the spread of COVID-19. By getting tested every two weeks from now until the end of the school year, we can help keep schools open and sports operating, and ensure we are limiting the spread of COVID-19. Anyone could have COVID-19 and not know it. Getting tested regularly is the best way to know you are still healthy. All options are quick, easy, and free to you. Visit Getting Tested for COVID-19 or contact your health care provider to schedule an appointment. https://mn.gov/covid19/get-tested/

Congratulations to our McGregor Elementary Students of the Month for January. These young people have done a great job of living up to the Mercury Ways. I'd like to thank Pine Insurance Agency and Nate Jackson for providing the t-shirts for the students. We posted their individual pictures the other day but thought we'd show them with their new shirts. Way to go!!
