Superintendent Update

School District of Brodhead COVID-19 update: 06-02-21

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Good Morning. I am happy to say that we are ending the year on a positive note. Once again we did not have any positive cases with either students or staff. As we end the year our conditions have vastly improved. We have relaxed our rules for Summer School and will allow students and staff to remove their masks during outside activities. As conditions continue to improve we will consider future adjustments as well. The Administrative Team and Board will be meeting in July to start discussing what accommodations will be needed, if any, for the 2021-22 school year.

We will be offering free meals to all children ages 18 and under during the weeks of summer school. We are also considering offering meals in July and August. If you have not already completed this survey, please use the following link to do so. We appreciate your response.

2020-21 School Year:
• The last day of school is Thursday, June 3. This will be an Early Release day and the staff will have a post-service that evening. Elementary students will be dismissed at 1:00 p.m. and Middle/High School students at 1:15 p.m. We will follow our regular Early Release process.

Well it has certainly been a difficult year. It would be easy to dwell on all the negatives but I am proud of the way we have all handled this situation. We have all had to come together to make the best possible experience for our students/children. While I completely understand that not everyone agreed with every decision that has been made, for the most part, we all did what was necessary to be successful. I want to give out a huge THANK YOU to our staff. They had to endure a year like no other. I also want to thank our students. Their cooperation has been phenomenal. Finally, I want to that you, the Parents/Guardians. I know that you had to make some great sacrifices throughout the year. You have demonstrated great flexibility and understanding. I can count on one hand the number of complaints I received this year regarding COVID. With everything that we had to cope with, that is amazing!

I want to conclude this final update with a sincere debt of gratitude for your support and dedication to our District over my last sixteen years. It has been a pleasure and an honor to have served this great little community. As I wrap up the final month of my time here, it will be difficult to grasp doing anything else besides serving as your leader. Thank You for this opportunity and “Go Cardinals”!

Thanks, and have a great summer.
