  • COVID-19 Updates from Superintendent Slette and President Jonas

    The start of school is always very exciting; it's the opportunity to set new goals and reconnect with our friends and colleagues. We are on the brink of what is going to be an amazing year of learning, growing, and building relationships. Today’s communication to families and staff is to make you aware that the district is moving from “masks optional” to “masks recommended for those unvaccinated” for the 2021-22 school year. We also hope that this message helps our families and staff to understand the “why” behind this decision, regardless of your opinion on masks.
