Need a high school diploma?

Need a high school diplomaWith the 2018 summer job season rapidly approaching, those who lack a high school diploma have an opportunity to acquire their high school equivalency diploma (HSED) in time for the hiring period. The HSED, which many refer to as a “GED”, is the minimum educational attainment required by many employers, even for seasonal work.

Classes are offered Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Tyson Library in Versailles. These classes are free and are provided by River Valley Resources of Madison. Students’ needs are assessed the first day and coursework is tailored to meet each student’s specific requirements. Depending on a student’s existing competency and dedication to study, a student may be ready to test for the HSED in as little as four to six weeks.

Other services offered at this location include assistance with registration for certification such as CDL, RNA and welding. Certification courses are available for free or at reduced cost for those who qualify.

For more information, please call instructor Rich Ries at 812-571-0523.

Year-round camping reservations, discounts at state parks

Indiana State Parks is now offering advance campsite reservations for spring, winter and fall. Camping has always been available year-round at state parks. But in the past, campers could not reserve a site in advance between November and April. Sites were available only by registering on-site the day of camping, and they were administered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Year-round camping reservations, discounts at state parksBeginning March 9, a handful of sites at every state park where camping is offered will be available year-round for reservations on Camp.IN.gov or by calling 1-866-622-6746. For those who like to plan ahead, the ability to make year-round reservations is a convenient option. The maximum booking window of six months prior to arrival still applies.

For more spontaneous campers, many sites will remain available from November through April on a first-come, first-served basis for the day of arrival.
Also, an offer from Indiana State Parks will make weeknight camping more affordable this spring. Those who book a new campsite reservation for one or more consecutive weeknights (Sundays through Wednesdays) with an arrival date between April 15 and May 23, will receive 25 percent off of their reserved weeknights at the time of booking.

The discount is available only for campsites, and will not apply to any Thursday, Friday or Saturday stays. Use the promo code SPRING18.
