Winter has finally started to show up a bit for us. Some of you may be excited, others not so much. What it means for myself…making the decision if we are going to have “10:00 am Start” or “No School”. As we all know, our district is large, and the weather can be completely opposite from one corner to the next. I want to let you all know that I take this responsibility very seriously, and always have the safety of your children in mind. When the weather is going to be questionable I am out early driving the roads myself to help make the decision. I also communicate with law enforcement, highway crews, and county residents. I know that my decision will not always be agreed upon with everyone. Please keep in mind that I will never question your decision to keep your children home if you feel that roads are not ideal in your area. All we ask is that you call the school and let us know if your children will be running late or not coming in. We want to be sure that all students are accounted for. Please communicate with the school if you are not receiving any of the school messages. School closings and late starts will come to the phone numbers your provided at the beginning of the year.
Congratulations to our fall activities on great seasons. Oral Interp is finishing their season with State December 2nd and 3rd. Winter activities are now underway for everyone, our mid-term has just passed, and before you know it we will be at the end of the first semester and on Christmas Break. Important dates:
- K-12 Christmas Concert on December 6th @ 6:30pm
- 2:30 dismissal on December 22nd for Christmas Break
- Teacher In-Service on January 3rd

Reminder that I am still collecting survey responses on our District Perception Survey. Please contact me if you would be willing complete one of these. Thank you to all of you have responded thus far.
Thank you again for all of the support that this community gives our students and staff. Don’t forget that I am always willing to talk with you if you have questions. Please feel free to set up a time to meet or call the school sometime. Happy Holidays to everyone!
Yours in Education,
