A Message from the Superintendent -- September 2, 2021 Sep 2, 2021 A Message from the Superintendent

I hope that your children are having a great start to the school year.  Last week I was excited to see so much enthusiasm as our students returned to school.  Hopefully, that excitement and enthusiasm will carry us through some of the challenges we are facing.  

We all wanted a normal school year for this year, but right now, we are pretty far away from normal. My hope is this communication will provide you an update on a variety of items and our plans moving forward.
