Monday Message

from Susan M. Hasenauer, Superintendent

Monday, May 3, 2021

Dear Families,

Teacher Appreciation Week officially kicks off today and runs through Friday. I personally would like to thank all of our teachers, support staff and administrators for their dedication to our students. In a year that has been filled with twists and turns, they have continued to be the consumate professionals and have chosen to continually rise above any challenge and support our students first. I would be remise not to recognize the talent we have amongst our staff. I am beyond grateful to be part of this community and I greatly want thank all educators in our district for their service.

In addition, Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers, grandmothers, step-moms, aunts and guardians who impact the life of children each and everyday. I hope you have a day of relaxation and enjoy this Sunday.

Happy Monday ~ Have a great week!


Sue Hasenauer

The new deadline is calculated fifteen (15) days after the date of withdrawal and results in an extension until May 5, 2021 at 5:00 PM. Petitions have the same requirements: they must be submitted to the District Clerk and contain twenty-five (25) signatures of qualified voters.
