I am excited to begin the 21-22 school year and look forward to the many accomplishments that will be achieved this year by our students and staff. Although we continue to face challenges due to the pandemic, I am confident that we are going to have the best school year yet! We have excellent staff members who are dedicated to student success. As a district, we are committed to keeping our students and staff as safe as possible throughout the year by focusing on the mitigation strategies that will keep our students onsite in their schools.
I am also happy to share that all of our construction projects are going well. I encourage you to drive by Walnut Elementary, Emporia High School, and the brand new Jones Early Childhood Development Center on South Walnut Street to see the progress. The renovations and additions that are being made to all of our schools are attributed to the support and commitment of our wonderful community. These improvements will ensure the safety of our students as well as the longevity of our school buildings for years to come.
I look forward to the many future #EmporiaProud moments that will occur this year and want to thank each of you for supporting our students and staff throughout the year.
