Hononegah Board approves new clubs

ROCKTON — The Hononegah High School Board of Education approved three new clubs at its regular meeting Wednesday night.

Stagehands Club, Grace on Campus and The Tribe were approved as G-Level clubs, meaning they have been given one year to meet certain criteria, like hosting activities for students, before they can achieve full status and get funding from the board. Stagehands Club is a theatre-based club. Grace on Campus is a spirituality-based organization, open to students of all faiths. The Tribe is a mix of cheerleaders and the dance team, and their goal is to “raise the level of spirit for school,” said Superintendent Lynn Gibson.

Assistant Superintendent Kim Suedbeck. She said she felt the clubs would be a positive addition for the students.

ALICE training in place at Hononegah

ROCKTON — Hononegah will have fully switched over from Hard Lockdown to ALICE (Alert-Lockdown-Inform-Counter-Evacuate) Emergency Procedures when students are shown an informational video later this month.

A date has not been set yet because the video has not been finalized, said Assistant Superintendent Kim Suedbeck.

“We don’t want to scare kids,” Suedbeck said. “The reality is we train for a fire that we hope will never happen, but we’re training them to give them the tools they need just in case something happens.”

After staff and faculty received full training over the summer on the new ALICE procedures, taking turns responding to possible scenarios, parents were informed on the new procedures during two informational nights last month.
