Dear Parents/Guardians,


It is hard to believe that the last days of summer are upon us and the start of school is quickly approaching. Staff will return to the district on Tuesday, September 5th and students will return on Wednesday, September 6th for a single session day. Your building principals will communicate with more information.


It has been a busy summer, with many facilities improvements. I think staff, students and parents will be excited to enter our buildings next week. I want to acknowledge our tremendous team who has worked hard all summer to prepare for our students. Our principals, coordinators, Central Office staff, secretaries, custodial, maintenance and grounds staff, and our teachers and support staff members are a wonderful group and all are ready to welcome back our students.

The state mandated that crisis and threat assessment teams be in place by this past June. The District has been proactive in safety and security and has had this team in place for more than a year. In addition, the district continues to put the safety and security of our staff and students as our top priority. We employ 12 Safe School Resource Officers throughout the district.


Portal Opening

The portal for all schools will open on Tuesday, August 29th. Students/parents can check the portal then for schedules.  


District Calendar

The District will be closed for Yom Kippur on Monday, September 25th. A link to the school calendar can be found here.
