Superintendent's Message

April 29, 2021

Dear Bulldog Families,

Incredibly, we are four weeks away from the end of the 2020–2021 school year. Thank you for your continued support, cooperation, and patience and for the part you have played in enabling us to have students safely at school for in-person learning, activities, and athletics.

In the coming days, many of our students will be participating in important assessments. Information from the testing will be helpful not only in planning these last few weeks but also to prepare for 2021–2022. If you have any questions about the testing, please reach out to your student's teacher or principal.

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 3 through May 7. We are very fortunate to have such committed, caring, and knowledgeable teachers who have enabled us to successfully endure the many challenges we have faced and overcome this school year. I hope you will be able to find a way to let your students' teachers know much you appreciate them!

We invite you to please read the continuation of our April 29 superintendent’s letter. For your convenience, you may also access the COVID testing consent form using the link below.
