A Letter from Curriculum Director Denice Hirt

The 2020-21 school year has opened with changes that we could not have planned in our wildest dreams! As the district’s curriculum and instructional leader, the days (and nights) are fast and furious! We continue to plan, replan, and make adjustments while still striving to provide quality instruction. I am so proud of our K-12 staff who are making changes from what they would have done in previous years to adapt to the learning that is necessary today. As educators, we are providing instruction to seated students, virtual students, and at home students. We ask your patience as we continue to learn strong strategies and implement teaching methods. What may work in one learning environment may need to be tweaked in another.

If you have concerns or questions during this learning time, remember your child’s teacher, principal, and myself. When raising these questions, please know that our teachers have more on their plate than ever and may not have an immediate answer. However, if you send us your questions and concerns, we will do our best to respond in a timely manner.

Thank you for your continued support.
