I hope you are enjoying the remaining halcyon days of summer! I am very much looking forward to meeting and working with all of you. One of my favorite parts of education is the opportunity to begin anew. As a child, I always eagerly anticipated the beginning of the new school year, barely able to sleep the night before the first day. I am fortunate to be part of a community that affords me that same opportunity each and every year! In an effort to build strong communication and a positive forum, my plan is to write a weekly newsletter. At present, it is a work in progress so I welcome your feedback!
UPDATE ON RENOVATIONS
As you know, we are in the midst of summer renovations. I am told that we are "on schedule" and the custodial staff is working diligently to get the building into beautiful shape for our opening. If you have a chance, please take a moment to thank them for their hard work!
Teachers schedules are now set and ready for viewing. Please note that minor changes (e.g. movement of students) may still occur, but classes and periods are locked.
ON THE HORIZON
Access to Building
Teacher IDs will be re-activated for building access on Aug 19, on reduced hours because many buildings will still be closing at 5PM. Access for all district staff will resume normal school year activity starting on Aug 26. Staff who also coach a fall sport (Varsity or JV) will have access resumed on Aug 12.
