A huge WILDCAT THANK YOU to the True Value Foundation and Nelson's Agricenter of Viroqua! This partnership awarded La Farge Schools a Health & Safety Kit through the Educational Heroes Safety Campaign. "True Value Foundation (TVF) is focused on helping youth succeed with tools and resources to achieve their potential. Our children's greatest resources are their educators and school staff. To ensure they get their best educational experience under these trying circumstances, everything possible must be done to keep our educators and school staff safe. " The kits will include hand sanitizer, germicidal cleaner and painters tape to mark social distancing, helping protect those educators and staff serving our youth.
