    Dear Parents, Guardians, Students and Staff:

    I hope you all had an enjoyable and relaxing Memorial Day weekend. Mother Nature was certainly our friend, bestowing us with summer weather on the weekend dubbed the “unofficial start of summer.” The last day of school is another sign that summer is here. Students, you will have until June 9 to turn in all of your assignments and that will be your last day of school for this strange, unexpected and odd year during which school building doors were suddenly shuttered in mid-March due coronavirus.

    With summer typically comes the clean out of lockers. Students, I know you have waited a long time to get your belongings back and that your personal items are important to you. Please remember that the only time that you will be allowed back in your school is the date and time assigned by your principal. Please adhere to your principal’s schedule

    This Thursday, seniors will pick up caps and gowns, yearbooks and medals starting at 10:00 a.m. at the Field House. The Field House will be decorated and the Class of 2020 will be welcomed with cheers and congratulations.

    The Board of Education will be holding two public hearings on May 28 - public safety at 6:30 p.m. and the 2020-2021 budget at 7:00 p.m. The hearings will be held virtually. More information is coming shortly. You will be able to call in/submit questions at each hearing.

    Now that the weather is so nice, there will be a lot of temptation to forget about the safety measures intended to keep the coronavirus at bay. Make sure you keep following the guidelines of frequent handwashing, social distancing and wearing face coverings. You can do it! And we are all doing it together. Thank you and stay safe and be well.
