Congratulations to the cast and crew of the Sound of Music! The spring musical had performances on March 31, April 1, 2, & 3.


The Update Center was created in the spring of 2020 when the virus first affected our area.

On March 21, the board agreed to de-activate the COVID dashboard due to the low number of cases in the district; the dashboard can be reactivated at any point if the board so chooses.

The Update Center has a plethora of resources and information, including letters from Dr. Zuilkoski, learning resources, and more.

Providing a strong public school system like ours takes a dedicated team of passionate and caring people who work together to uplift children and help them flourish. Everyone who works at a public school - teachers, custodians, bus drivers, cafeteria and classroom aides, building secretaries, and coaches, to name a few – makes a difference in the life of a child and plays a key role on the team. Being part of the public education team is rewarding and inspiring! Are you ready to join the team?
