 Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members:

      It is hard to believe that half of the school year is over and we are moving into second semester with a renewed hope that we will eventually get school back to the way it should be, before Covid.

     Our staff  has been working diligently to recover any lost instructional learning that may have occurred when school let out last spring.  We are seeing data that supports that students are making good progress and moving closer to grade level expectations.  There is still work to do, but our teachers and para educators are focusing on our core content as well as providing interventions for those students who need some additional instruction.

     I am very proud of all of our support staff and the work they have been doing in keeping our doors open for students.  All of our secretaries, food service staff, custodial and maintenance, transportation and bus drivers and district office personnel have all contributed in getting our students back on campus.  It has been a lot of work, but our Logger Family has pulled together for the sake of our kids.  If you get a chance, thank them for their efforts on keeping our students safe while at school.

     Looking ahead, we are still uncertain about some of our “traditions” and what will happen with those.  Graduation, 8th grade promotion, Prom and other important events are currently on hold as we do not know what the future will bring. As we get further along with Phase 2, our state and local health departments will provide us with updates on what will be allowed.  Until we get changes in our social distancing mandates, holding these events as we know them will be difficult.  We will certainly keep everyone informed if/when things change.

     As always, please feel free to contact me or the building administrators if you have questions or want to make comments.  We are working hard to keep our kids in school and want to thank all of you for helping in this effort.
