Superintendent Update 4/27/2020
As many if not all of you are now aware, students will not be returning to school this year. Our Distance Learning Plan (DLP) will continue for the remainder of the year. Along with this directive from our Governor, we will not have any components of the DLP this Friday (5/1) and Monday (5/4). This time was originally set aside for teachers to plan on bringing students back into the buildings. We will now utilize this time to do some professional development with our teachers to continue the DLP for the remainder of the year. Much of this professional development is to help teachers maintain the integrity of the DLP. We are well aware of the frustration and fatigue being felt by students, parents, and our staff. Since we have never dealt with a situation like this before, we will be working with our teachers to help overcome some of these challenges.
Along with the continuation of teachers interacting with their students, we will be having our spring sports coaches working with our spring athletes. This will consist of one to one dialogue between the coach and athletes via our DLP platforms. Along with overall fitness and skill development there will be leadership and other positive attributes of involvement in co-curricular activities. If you have any questions or you want to make sure your child is signed up for spring activities, please contact Jonathan Ruoff our Activities Director
Mr. Doetkott, our High School Principal has been working with students and parents on moving forward with graduation this year. He has come up with some creative ways to continue with this very important event. Graduation is still being planned for May 29. More details will be forthcoming as we get closer to this event.
Please continue to monitor our website for any new information as it becomes available. We are in the process of planning summer events at this time. However, we also know these events will be different from the past and may be a variation of the DLP.
Greg Winter, Superintendent
