Keeping Our Schools Open

As we prepare for the start of the 2021-2022 school year, the safety and well-being of our students, staff, and families remain at the forefront of our work. In spite of COVID-19's continued presence of in our community, we believe we share a common goal to limit disruptions to student learning as much as possible, while maintaining the health and safety of our students, staff, and visitors. To that end, we have several protocols in place to keep our buildings safe, to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, and to assist us in keeping our schools open five days a week for in-person instruction. Many of these measures will sound familiar as they were utilized last school year and have proven to be successful.  Please click the "Keeping Our Schools Open 2021-2022 - FAQs" link below for more details.

Staff and the Media

NEWS MEDIA: Employees of the District should contact Mrs. Rhonda Fourhman, Coordinator of Community Relations, and their principal/supervisor if they are asked by a reporter to speak about District events or initiatives in which they will be identified as a staff member of the District. This should occur prior to any on or off camera interviews, statements, and photographs.  Additionally, if interested in sharing a positive story with the media, please work with Mrs. Fourhman before initiating contact with a news station. 
SOCIAL MEDIA: We recognize that many of our employees are active social media users. As a school district, we also incorporate social media as part of our communications strategy. The lines between public and private, personal and professional, are blurred online. Staff are asked to carefully consider what they post online and how it may be perceived.
