A New School Year

As summer break comes to an end, the district is busy planning for the new school year. Our custodial and maintenance staff worked hard all summer painting, building, cleaning, and disinfecting the schools. Our tech team updated computers, alongside all other technology. The administrative team reviewed data and prepared professional development for the teaching staff. Teachers and staff worked hard to address learning loss through the credit recovery summer programs. Suffice to say, it has definitely been busy around here! The start of school can be a stressful time for families with so many different events and obligations. The following is a list of important dates:

  • August 15 and 16: Kindergarten Orientation - Please refer to your letter and follow your assigned date/time.
