September 14, 2021 - Update to Mask Requirements

Dear Parents and Community,

During the previous school year and the start of this current school year, it was and continues to be the goal of the district to keep our doors open for in-person learning. We know from our own experience that many of the students we serve struggled when they were not in a classroom with their teachers and other students.

Please take a moment to read through this new communication from Superintendent Gary Buchsen regarding changes to our current mask requirements.
