Annual Notifications


Welcome from the Superintendent

Please let me welcome everyone to our school district for the 2021-2022 school year. Our school district’s Vision Statement “Learning for Life – Building Partnerships for Success” is the cornerstone for our educational programs as well as the relationships that are fostered among all stakeholders. As we strive for educational excellence, we encourage a sense of open communication and trust. To that end, we invite all parents to contact any of our staff should they have any concerns about their child’s education. It is through open communication that concerns are addressed and partnerships are strengthened. Strong partnerships among students, parents and educators form the positive relationships that are critical to student success in school.

Dr. Daniel J. Coles
Superintendent of Schools
