Superintendent’s Update - January 10, 2014

Post date: Jan 11, 2014 12:55:26 AM

We had a good start to the new year with students, faculty, and staff returning from the holiday break rested and focused. The transition to our new transportation providers was positive. There were few delays, most weather related, and those that were not related to weather were quickly resolved. Please remember that schools will be closed on Monday, January 20th to observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The second term of the school year ends on January 24, 2014. Please check our website calendars often for information about upcoming events and meetings:
