This morning at approximately 7:40 it was reported over the radio by a school bus driver that there was a gun on the bus. Safety protocols were followed, no students or adults were in danger at any time, and all students were delivered to school safely. The student was a lower elementary student who told another student he had a gun in his backpack. That student followed training and reported immediately to the bus driver who controlled the situation. As it turns out, the gun was a broken airsoft gun. Kudos to the students on the bus who did as they were taught and especially to the bus driver who handled the situation calmly and safely.

Cougar Nation, As we close out the 2020-2021 school year, we are excited to celebrate the Class of 2021 in an in-person commencement program. The program will be held this Saturday, May 29th at 11:00 AM in the high school gymnasium. Unfortunately, due to safety restrictions, we are unable to have this event open to the entire Cougar Nation for in person attendance. Each graduate was given an allotment of 12 tickets to share with their family and friends. We know that the entire Cougar Nation joins the faculty and staff of North Putnam Community Schools in celebrating these students and their graduation from high school. If you would like to watch the program virtually, it will be streamed on our YouTube channel, “North Putnam TV”. We thank you for your continued support of our school and our students. We look forward to celebrating the class of 2021 and look forward to a great school year starting in August. Go Cougars! Jason A. Chew
