It's a Learning Experience

Hello Clever Bluejays and welcome to the start of what will surely be a year to remember! It is still hard to believe all that has taken place since we left school for Spring Break on March 13th. Now, 165 days later, we are able to come back together for the first day of school (Tuesday, August 25th) and we could not be more excited. While our new normal may take some adjusting to, rest assured that delivering the highest quality education to our students remains a top priority. Additionally, we will have an emphasis on safety protocols as we continue to navigate through this pandemic. There are a number of items posted on the district website that I encourage you to read before returning to school. Be sure you are following the High School and district Facebook pages and that your contact information is up to date in the main office.
