SCHOOL FACILITIES: Beginning May 1, school tennis courts and tracks will be open for public use. Patrons must follow the COVID-19 Guidelines established when using the facilities. School playgrounds, weight rooms, and other school facilities will remain closed.
GRADUATION: On May 1, high schools will formally announce their plans for graduation. We know a lot of time and effort went into making this special for the Class of 2020. We are excited about the different plans that were created to help us honor and celebrate our graduates and thank everyone who put in countless hours planning and helping this come to fruition.
RETIREMENT DINNER: Unfortunately, the annual Retirement Banquet held in May has been canceled. Retirees will receive their years-of-service plaque and check in the mail along with an additional $50 dinner gift card.
SCHOOL LUNCH HEROES: May 1st is School Lunch Hero Day, but we celebrated our Child Nutrition Staff a few days early on Wednesday. Between March 17 and April 29 our lunch heroes have served 404,127 meals to children 18 years and younger. Thank you to all of our Child Nutrition staff for their hard work and dedication!
