Comet Athletics are looking for those who have an interest in working events with various positions at our home games this year. If you have any interest in working gate (taking tickets), scoreboard, being an announcer, working the book for volleyball and basketball, and specifically for volleyball a Libero Tracker, please reach out to Laurie Bell email@example.com or Christian Maloney firstname.lastname@example.org.

Some families have received P-EBT cards for their child from the State as part of COVID food relief. One glitch is that it asks for the last 4 digits of your child's social security number. However, when you input that number, it tells you it is incorrect information. What you actually need to do is input "0000" and it should work. We hope this is helpful to you.
We hope you enjoy the first Jr/Sr High Comets Lead newsletter! You can find this newsletter on the Daily Announcements page, alongside other information that is updated daily to keep students and families informed! https://www.colemanschools.net/page/daily-announcements
