Dear Parent/Guardian:


Good Morning.

Hopefully this message finds you well.  Student checkouts next week will conclude a school year that was like no other.  We all have had to make sacrifices to our way of life, especially our students.  I want to thank you for all of your support and effort to make the best of a bad situation.  I submitted a letter to Governor Evers and our representatives that spoke to the pride I have for our District.  While I understand that everything has not worked perfectly, it was awesome to see so many people step up and do what was necessary to make this situation tolerable.

Parent SurveyIf you have not done so, please complete the parent survey that was sent out last week.  This survey provides us with valuable information as we prepare our Areas of Focus for the 2020-21 school year.  So far we have only had 144 responses.  We appreciate your time and feedback and hope that you will consider completing the survey.

Final Days for Students:

Home-Based Learning will continue through June 3rd with the last day of school being June 4th.
