Principal's Message -

Dear Falcon Families,

This week our families received a letter from Superintendent Pat Atkins regarding the Governor's recent announcement that will require COVID vaccinations for students and staff pending the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's approval. In the event that you did not see this letter, I have included it below.

We recognize that this mandate may significantly impact our district. We also recognize that our focus and dedication must stay in the present. Please know that we are committed to the success of your child and are steadfast in providing the education they deserve.

While we face uncertainty in the future, we will continue to best serve our school community today. As we receive more information regarding this State directive we will be sure to share it with you so that you can make the educational decision that is best for your family.

Thank you for allowing us to teach your children. It is truly a gift.
