Superintendent's Message: Back to School - September 3, 2014
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.
