Mad Alb Dear Community Members:
Several of our high school students recently had an opportunity to meet with Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State, at the FDR Library and Museum. This was an amazing opportunity for our students to learn about international affairs. On behalf of our students, I would like to thank Mr. Jeffrey Urbin, Education Specialist with the FDR Library, for making this experience possible.
Paul Finch, Superintendent 
 Superintendent's Message: Back to School - September 3, 2014
Dear Community Members:

Our first day of classes is Wednesday, September 3, 2014.  We are excited to be welcoming 1,967 students in grades K - 12.  It is our goal to understand, and plan for, each one of these children.
I would like to remind all community members to operate with care around school buses.   We also have many children who walk to our middle and high school campuses.  Please be mindful of any students in the crosswalks.

I thank you in advance for your help in making sure we provide a safe and effective learning environment for all our students.

Paul Finch, Superintendent of Schools
