In order for Santa to deliver your picture to you in a timely manner, Ramona will not be providing the camera, so please bring a camera (or a phone) and we'll have elves on standby to take the picture for you (with gloves on, of course!)

Latest email from Dr. Kedziora

Dear Families:

On behalf of the board of education, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and a relaxing break.

We have three weeks until our Winter Break. Please ensure your students continue to participate in their Zoom classes, engage in their asynchronous assignments, and ask for help during office hours.

During this time, the district is continuing to monitor the spread of COVID-19 in the region. We are also working with our employee associations to plan next steps and inform our board of the progress being made. The board receives an update at each Board meeting so they can provide direction and take action if necessary.

We also will continue to provide you updates as we look ahead to the new year. We thank you for your continued support and assistance in finishing out 2020 strong.

Sincerely,

Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Superintendent of Schools
