It is remarkable that we have concluded the 2020 – 2021 school year. In August, with all of our planning and preparation, no one knew just how long our students would be able to remain in school. Having the ability to finish the year as we did would not have been possible without the tremendous support and cooperation we experienced from our families. I cannot thank you enough for your understanding, patience and flexibility as we navigated through this unprecedented year. This spring finally provided a sense of normalcy as we were able to provide students with hands on learning activities, end of the year outside activities and held a traditional prom and graduation ceremony.
As part of our learning recovery plan as the state department of education suggests, we have created summer learning programs for students at our schools. I encourage all students to take advantage of these great opportunities in helping recover any loss of learning due to the pandemic. If you are interested and have not yet signed up, please contact Joy Wolfel at 740-982-7010 Ext. 2326.
Throughout the summer we will continue to make building improvements, perform routine maintenance and prepare for our students to return in August. We will be experiencing a number of staff changes as we return next fall due to retirements, transfers and resignations.
I hope everyone is able to enjoy your summer with friends and family. We all deserve the time to wind down and relax after this past year. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the administrative office throughout the summer at 740-982-7040.
