Good morning, This is Dr. Smith, Superintendent of South Putnam Schools. On Friday, September 29, South Putnam Schools will be on a two-hour delay due to dense fog. There will be no AM Area 30 transportation and no AM Pre-K. Stay Safe, Eagles!
Good afternoon! This is just a friendly reminder that on Monday, September 25th, students will not be in the school buildings but completing E-Learning assignments from home.

We hope to see you at the homecoming football game tonight! Stay safe, Eagles!
Good evening, Eagles: This is Dr. Smith, Superintendent at South Putnam Community Schools. I have great news! Hendricks Power was able to quickly and efficiently replace the defective power transformer at the high school. We have verified that our systems are operational; therefore, we will return to normal school operations tomorrow, Friday, August 25th. I want to thank and give a huge shout-out to the entire South Putnam family, parents, students, teachers, staff, administrators, and transportation department for proactively working together to make this unfortunate and unforeseen situation go as smoothly as possible. Everyone came together like the amazing Eagle family that we are. Thank you! So, to reiterate, all South Putnam schools will be operating as normal tomorrow, Friday, August 25th. Have a great evening, Eagles!
