Voters approve 2020 capital project proposal Voters approve 2020 capital project proposal: Dec. 5, 2018 -- Moravia Central School District residents today voted to authorize the district to proceed with a capital improvement project to address critical infrastructure and security needs.   Voters approved the $11.5 million project – the first of three planned phases – 190 yes votes to 36 no votes.   “I want to thank everyone in the community who made time to vote today, even as they juggle the demands of a bustling holiday season,” Superintendent of Schools John Birmingham said. “Just like our residents, the district has a long to-do list, but we can’t tackle these essential repairs and upgrades without the support of our citizens. It’s gratifying to serve a community that is committed to safeguarding its ...
Food Services tip: Staying healthy in the cold Food Services tip: Staying healthy in the cold:   From the December Wellness newsletter from the district’s Food Services department   Cold equals cold Cold weather doesn't cause colds -- viruses do! Same with the flu. There's even a theory that it's actually safer to be outside in cold weather than indoors, where dry air and poor ventilation may make it easier for germs to hang around and spread. If people are in closed spaces sniffling, the bad stuff has nowhere to go. Of course, you should always be sure to dress appropriately outdoors for comfort and to avoid frostbite (in other words,  put your coat on!) But if you don't want to get sick, you should always remember to wash your hands. Other tips for healthier eating: Eat better Try ...

Food Services Tip: Turkey trot Food Services Tip: Turkey trot: Oct. 29, 2018 -- From the November Wellness newsletter from the district’s Food Services department: Thanksgiving dinner can easily exceed 3,000 calories, and 4500 calories in just that one sitting is not unusual! But you don't have to just sit there. You can burn 200 calories in an hour's brisk walk. So if we all made a point to take a vigorous walk  (or trot!) before and/ or after the big meal, we could offset some of those extra calories. That, plus just a LITTLE dining room restraint, can make the big day more like a regular calorie day!  Eat better It's not polite to tum down dessert, right?! So at least you can choose pumpkin pie, which may well be your healthiest option. No crust on top helps, plus you usually eat it with ...

It seems the opposing team was unaware Moravia had rented lights for the special game and, despite what was listed on the game schedule, assumed the contest would be played today in daylight. We would like to apologize to all the athletes, families and fans for not being able to provide an opportunity for the community to cheer on our varsity football team. We understand how much fans and athletes alike were looking forward to this game. We are currently ...
