Superintendent's Message

      November 20, 2020

      Dear Bulldog Families,

      The 2020–2021 school year is progressing quickly, even with the unique challenges we continue persevering through together. I am very proud to be part of this district where so many families, students, and staff are working together to make the most of remote and small-group learning. Maintaining a commitment to excellence in our current circumstances while also preparing for the future is crucial but tedious work, leading many of us to anticipate some much-needed rest and relaxation during Thanksgiving week. I want to reassure you that we will follow our approved school calendar with there being no school from Monday, November 23 through Friday, November 27.

      Thanksgiving, of course, typically involves travel from many families as they gather with loved ones. As we near the holiday season, I want to take this opportunity to ask that you take certain safety precautions this Thanksgiving keeping the current health order and executive order in mind when making decisions about gatherings and travel.

      We invite you to take a moment and read the November 5, 2020, parent letter.
