Today the Governor announced pushing the start date of school back to August 24th. Please know that his announcement to our great state was the first time everyone was hearing it.

Our district has been preparing diligently, for the past couple of months, to reopen with the safety of our students, staff, and community in the forefront of every decision. Our Board approved the upgrade of our network and technology to make sure we can serve our students in the classroom and via virtual learning

As we have known all along this situation is fluid and today’s announcement by the Governor shows just how fluid it is. We continue to work to provide parents and the community with a clear plan for the upcoming year so thank you for your patience and understanding.

Through it all we remain United and Greyhound Strong!!!
