It feels normal around the district these days. Students and teachers are back, schools are humming with activities, and a good year is planned by everyone. We hope you check back often throughout the year to catch up on what's happening in our schools and district.

You've likely noticed our new school and district web sites, which look and navigate differently from our previous sites. The changes were made in direct response to the district's communication survey completed last spring where parents and community members identified areas needed for improved communication and ease of access. We think you'll like what you see and read! Give your school a call or email the principal if there's something you feel is missing from our school sites.

Our staff returned to schools the week of August 30th in preparation for students' on September 7. Each day was full of work sessions, training, presentations and set up of classrooms. Staff also received additional training on use of the eSIS student information system, which provides online updates for parents on their students in grades 6-12.

Several schools earlier hosted open houses to give students and families a chance to meet the teachers, drop off supplies and more. The first days of the school year are always exciting and we look forward to a year full of success for our students.
