Yesterday evening the Board approved a revised School District Calendar for the 2020-2021 school year. The biggest change to note is that the school year now starts on September 8, 2020 for students (The day after Labor Day). With growing concerns over the COVID-19 virus at this time, we have moved a majority of our Professional Development days normally spaced throughout the calendar to the week before school start for students. This will allow school staff time to practice procedures and plan for the school year based on the county level we are in at the time. You can view the revised calendar on our website under the menu tab, 2020-2021 Printable School Calendar or use this link:

Hello, This is Kraig Hissong Superintendent with an important reminder. Today is the last day to complete the survey about in-school or online instruction for next year and about bus transportation. Please go online today and use the link to our survey,
to provide the school with preliminary information about how your child(ren) will be instructed next year. This survey is not binding. It is simply a way that we will be able to make plans for this school year. Please answer survey questions with what you feel you will most likely do. The survey is very short. Final decisions for online SchoolsPLP or in-person (regular) school instruction will be made by mid August.
Also, we have had many great questions from the community about instruction for next year and what it will look like. We have completed a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document to provide families more information. If you have submitted a question to me, the answer will most likely be found in this document. We will continue to update this document as things change. If you feel the need to resubmit your survey after reading the information from the FAQ document that can be found on our website, you may do so. we will take you most recent survey submission. Please understand that we will do our best to keep you up to date. Here is a link to our FAQ document:
