The Ink Is Dry...and so are the Fields!

I hope that all of you enjoyed your spring break. I spent mine getting all of the diplomas signed and ready for final signature by the Board of Education president. 

I also watched our playing fields dry out, become level, and become ready to be played on. Surprisingly, we have been able to hold almost every one of our games on schedule and our turf field is back in service. Who would have thought that a month ago?

Other than desk work and visiting buildings to make sure all winter damage has been taken care of, I had a pretty quiet week which is in direct contrast to the week our paid and volunteer emergency management service people had. Many of our emergency service workers are also parents of children in our schools and they had to respond to three ugly car accidents and a fire. I want to thank all of our community emergency responders for handling each situation with compassion, professionalism, and expertise.

Here I go jinxing ourselves, but if we do not have any additional emergency closing days, students and staff will have the Friday before Memorial Day (May 22) off.

Enjoy what is supposed to be a beautiful weather week and thank you for your continued support!
