Announcements & Upcoming Meetings
STATEMENT FROM THE BOARD OF EDUCATION
The Board of Education would like to show appreciation to all our students, teachers, support staff and administration leaders who made 2021-22 the school year it had to be; a year where we all come together again after distance learning.
For most of our schools, this meant that we could not get back to the way things were before Covid-19, but rather, how the way was going to be moving forward together.
For some schools, such as our online learning school, this meant starting from scratch and build a strong program anew.
For a few or our schools, this meant learning their school would be closing. So not only did these schools have to get back to the rigor and routine of their school, but there was additional emotion and meaning because the year coming back from Covid-19 was going to be their last year.
And with sheer joy, there is much to celebrate. New friendships being made between students, teachers and support staff getting back to establishing that interpersonal connection with their students, kindergarten, 5th grade, 8th grade and senior graduations.
And with great empathy, there were challenging transitions. Covid-19 impacted many aspects of district operations that tested our resolve. Bus drivers and substitute teachers to name a few. At times, we have asked our administration leaders, principals, teachers, and parents to do the impossible for our students and it was all made possible through your efforts.
With a deep breath, we say good-bye to 2021-22. By now, every school district has heard of the tragedy at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Tx. As your school board members, we want you to know that every one of us carries a heavy weight on our shoulders as we are charged to ensure the fundamental safety of all our community members in our buildings and on our school grounds.
We ask that everyone take a little time to think about how much work has been done these last 10 months. During the summer, take the breaks you need. Know that we will do our best to support you all and together we can make SPPS a place where students can truly think critically, pursue their dreams, and change the world.UPCOMING MEETINGS
