Good morning, 

Last night, a fire at Dike Newell resulted in considerable damage to the school. The district is working with local fire and police authorities to assess the situation. We will provide updates soon when we have more information, including plans for the last week of school for Dike Newell students and staff. A special thank you to the first responders that worked tirelessly through the night to assess and contain the situation.
