Spring 2021

Our Journey Continues

This school year has been a journey for the ages. The year 2020-2021 will go down as the most difficult in recent history if not ever. I have discussed before about there being light at the end of the tunnel. For our school year, we can see the light, the end is in sight. For our protocols and procedures, I believe the light is getting larger.

This journey has been difficult for students, parents, teachers, coaches, administrators, board members, and our community. However, the magnitude of our collaboration to ensure school started in the fall and the work you put in to keep it afloat is unbelievable.

Typically, change in a school district is like turning an aircraft carrier, it is slow, strategic, and calculated. However, I compare the work you did this year and the changes we had made, like turning a ski boat. It was fast, it was precise, it caused wakes in the water, but it eventually found its way back on its path.
