Brockway closes Thursday, Friday after 4th confirmed COVID-19 case in 14 days

Health, Local | Posted on
Brockway, PA – Brockway Area Junior-Senior High School will close for Thursday and Friday following a fourth confirmed COVID-19 case. The Department of Education guidelines mandate that a building close for cleaning if there are four active cases during a rolling two-week window, according to an email sent to parents in the district. With Brockway’s fourth case, the district closed the high school and canceled home games and practices for those two days. Brockway Area Elementary School is unaffected. Teachers at Brockway High will be in their classrooms during the two-day shutdown, conducting classes through Google Classroom. While the staff will be in the building, the school is closed to visitors and students until in-person classes resume on Monday.

Kids in the Community – Cassidy, Erin, and Reagan Lindmar

Kim McDonald: State Farm Insurance presents Kids in the Community Cassidy, Erin and Reagan Lindmar They deserve to be recognized because of all the joy they have brought us neighbors since the pandemic started. In April they drew a chalk bear hunt for families taking walks around the neighborhood. They also made up Easter treats and left them at doors to make people smile. These little girls are always so friendly and giving. They are always offering to help anyone. Most recently we all (at least 20 of us) found an ornament made by these girls at our doorsteps with a note that they just wanted to spread holiday cheer. They sure do.

Weekly Tarot Card Reading

Raven Moon’s Oracle presents The Weekly Tarot Card Reading This week’s reading involves The Topsie-Turvets, who represent change of viewpoint, fresh looks, and new ways of seeing. In a reading the Turvets suggest that things need to be looked at from another angle.  We need to back off from our emotional entanglement and look anew. Much of the apparent confusion about the issue is caused by a faulty point of view.  Get the opinions of honest others and then re-look at your own. Defensiveness and denial may be causing much difficulty. Try imagining that you are looking at the situation from the point of view of each of the others involved. This is not an exercise in deciding how the other “ought” to see things, but in discovering how they really do.  Words like “ he ought to see that ….” are not useful at this time. This is the time to put yourself in the other person’s shoes.

$78,843! Official total for 2020 DuBois area Make-A-Wish campaign

DuBois, PA – In the weeks after our DuBois area Make-A-Wish campaign wrapped up, people continued to donate for our local kids, pushing our official grand total up by more than an addition $4,400… that’s one extra wish that we weren’t expecting! Lacy Bair, the Make-A-Wish Greater PA and WV regional director says that altogether in 2020, our DuBois area campaign raised $78,843! Connect FM · Lacy Bair – Official DuBois Make-A-Wish Total 2020 That means that, since the average cost of a wish is $4,400, our area alone was able to provide the funds for 18 kids… 18 entire families… to have a wish that allows a child dealing with a critical illness to forget about the doctor’s appointments and hospital visits and just be a kid. That is an astounding number, especially since it’s during a pandemic! Businesses, schools, organizations, and everyday people dug deep and raised a magical amount of money, which will all go toward granting wishes for local kids with critical illnesses. To everyone who donated, thank you so much! *** Thank you!
