Upcoming Football Playoff Information

Dear Knights Fans!

With the exciting win last night over the Howells-Dodge Jaguars, 42-36, our Lourdes Central Catholic Knights have advanced to the “Elite Eight” in the Class D-1 Football Playoffs for the first time in nine years.  (Click Here for Playoff bracket)

With our next game being against Creighton (Community) High School in Creighton, Nebraska, at 5:00 p.m., we have decided to cancel school next Tuesday.  This is due to a number of factors including travel time, potential traffic and road construction as well as wanting to give our students and our Lourdes community members the opportunity to participate in our national/state/local elections, if traveling to the game.  We are happy, that at this time,  the weather forecast doesn’t seem to be an additional factor.

In regard to travel time, Creighton High School is just over 200 miles away which means an approximate 3 hour and 30 minute drive by car.

Additionally, for your planning…

  • Monday, November 7th will be a “Spirit Day!”- 15 Minute Pep Rally Schedule to show our support for the football team and the coaches (Grades 3-12)
  • Tuesday, November 8th – No School / Primary and Main campuses will be closed
  • Wednesday, November 9th – Regular Schedule (7:56 a.m. start) / PreK-12

Finally, a few items:

  1. Information regarding a “Fan Bus” for students, faculty and parents, etc. will come under separate email from Mr. Tynon’s Office.  The cost and other related details are currently being investigated.
  2. The Junior High Basketball Game, scheduled for Tuesday vs. Sidney is cancelled.
  3. The Lourdes Book Fair will be cancelled on Tuesday, but do note the K-12 T-shirt Day – All for Books! Will still take place on Wednesday, November 9th
