Superintendent's Newsletter November/December 2021

John Phelan, Superintendent of Schools

The November and December newsletters are combined due to the Thanksgiving break and the December recess. It is hard to believe we are looking toward the winter season and New Year's Day when it feels like September was a moment ago. Have a joyous holiday season and restful winter recess (week of 12/27).
