It continues to be a pleasure to serve Taylor County School District as Superintendent. As we begin our third school year facing a pandemic, our dedicated teachers and staff are still committed to academic excellence and supporting our students and families as we continue to navigate through this ever-changing landscape together. We plan to approach this school year with kindness and patience. This time also calls for adaptability, empathy, and compassion. Although we cannot expect classes to be just like before, we are thrilled that our students are back in the classrooms learning with their teachers face-to-face and interacting in-person with their peers. As we look ahead to the 2021-2022 school year, we stay committed to preparing our students for their academic journey.
As we continue to meet the challenges of providing education during the COVID-19 pandemic environment, we are devoted to planning and implementing classroom and school health and safety protocols. The health and safety of students, faculty and staff are our first priority.
What is most important is that we stay positive, focus on what can be achieved each day, and continue to work together to build a strong partnership. I am proud of the many accomplishments, in our schools and across our district, and I look forward to creating more opportunities for our students to be successful.
Sending my gratitude and best to all of you as we launch into a new school year.
