School Starts Wednesday, August 10th!

Mary Beth Jackson Superintendent of Schools, personally welcomes all students back to school and reminds everyone to drive carefully as schools open Wednesday, August 10th.

"I have worked with district officials preparing for the first days of school," said Jackson.  "Currently, it appears that our first few days of school may be filled with rain.  Buses should run as scheduled. We will be monitoring road conditions throughout this rain event. Principals have in place safety procedures that address inclement weather throughout the school day. These procedures include the unloading and loading of buses and private vehicles that transport students to and from school. I am asking that you exercise caution and patience while together we open our schools once again. If you will be transporting your student, please be aware of the unloading and loading procedures at your school. The first days of school are always exciting and eventful and I am looking forward to another very successful school year. Student safety is my top priority. Thank you.”
