  • Statement from Dr. Shank

    There are many questions regarding the start of school. Dr. Shank recently stated that "the priority is to get students back to school". A district reopening committee is meeting July 14 to discuss specifics regarding school operations. Once decisions are made, we will communicate with students and families should there be special considerations or accommodations for returning.
    School priorities are consistent from year to year; support high levels of learning and protect students and staff.
