Dear BGR-1 Families and Staff, In the interest of maintaining transparent communication, I am reaching out to share an incident that occurred at our BG campus this morning. We experienced an false fire alarm due to someone accidentally engaging a pull station, and I want to reassure you that our vigilant staff responded exactly how we practice. They promptly evacuated our students from the buildings, following protocol, until authorities confirmed it was safe. We have already identified the source of this alarm and are taking the necessary steps to rectify the situation. The safety of our students remains our top priority, and we will continue to work diligently to ensure their wellbeing. On a brighter note, we have some exciting events ahead. Our football team will be competing in their final regular game and we are hostingmany schools at our cross country meet today, and our softball team is set to take on South Harrison in the Quarter Finals tomorrow. Let's rally behind our teams and show our Bobcat pride! Thank you for your continued support, and remember, it's always a great day to be a Bobcat! Sincerely, Matt Frederickson, PhD Superintendent

5 October 2023 Dear BGR-1 Family, It is with a heavy heart and profound personal sadness that I write to inform you that we learned this morning of the passing of a cherished member of our school community and dear friend, Bob Kirkpatrick. He was not just a remarkable leader but also a true servant of our community, whose contributions to our district have left an indelible mark on all of us. Mr. Kirkpatrick was a multifaceted individual, with a journey that touched the lives of many. From serving as a soldier in the Vietnam War, to his service in education as a teacher, coach, building principal, career center director and even stepping into the superintendency upon the passing of Murray Smith, he was always been willing to accept the call for servant leadership with an ever patient and confident style. His commitment to shaping the minds and futures of countless students was evident in the lasting impact he had on the lives he touched. He continued to serve his community diligently taking on roles as the County Clerk and, most recently, as the President of the Board of Education leading our board as a thoughtful and humble servant. In each capacity, he demonstrated exceptional leadership, integrity, and an unwavering commitment to the betterment of our community. Mr. K was not only a colleague but a dear friend to many of us, and had a boundless enthusiasm for our Bobcats and he just loved our school. Details regarding remembrance services and tributes will be shared with the community as they become available. During this difficult time, we offer our support, condolences, and strength to Mr. Kirkpatrick's family and loved ones. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Matthew Frederickson, PhD Superintendent Bowling Green R-1 School District
