Dear Families,
I hope this Sunday night finds you relaxing or enjoying time with your families.  When our children look back on this time, I am certain they will remember the bonus time they have will all of you fondly.  What an unexpected treasure as our children grow up so quickly. 

I have prepared a short video for you in an effort to help explain our shift to expected attendance in our "Virtual Voyage" this coming week.  In addition, I am including the slide presentation in which you can find links to this important information.

Stay healthy, well and be happy.  If at any time you need support, please do not hesitate to let your child's counselor or me know.  (Food continues to be available in our bus loop from 9-11am on Monday & Wednesday should your family need it.  No questions asked, and all are welcome.)

Fondly,
Dr. Barbara Powers

rally for the valley logo
The district is beginning a capital campaign to improve student experiences and level the playing field called "Rally for the Valley." The intent is to raise money to offset costs for proposed athletic field improvement projects, such as the installation of synthetic turf at Thomas J. Keenan Stadium, construction of a synthetic turf multi-purpose field at the site of our current baseball field, and construction of two, multi-purpose synthetic turf fields behind the high school. To learn more about these projects and how you can support the effort, please visit our webpages for more information.
