With an election on the horizon and rising COVID-19 numbers, we want you to know we are here to support you and your family.
As different as this next school year will be, I am making a commitment to you that we will do absolutely everything within our power to ensure all our students have the quality education they need and deserve–whether they are learning in-person or online, whether they are preschoolers or seniors, whether they are receiving special education services or ELL services. Our mission is that every child learns, grows and excels. I am as dedicated to that mission as ever.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate these uncharted waters.
Superintendent Steven Unowsky
