Dear Plain Local Community,
I would like to wish the entire community a safe and happy holiday season. As we take time to slow down and enjoy family and friends, I am thankful for your continued support and encouragement for all the students and staff in Plain Local. I consider it an honor to work and live in this great community.
This fall has been fantastic across the district. I am so proud of our students and staff and the difference they are making each day. They are Champions! I continue to be impressed and humbled by what I experience as I travel to various events at all buildings in the district. Our students are performing, competing, and excelling in all areas. The future is bright, and I am excited to see what the district can accomplish in 2020.
As we begin to experience winter weather, please understand I do my best to evaluate conditions beginning at 4 am. I begin to drive throughout our community and communicate with other local school districts and our Plain Township road department. I also keep current on the weather forecast throughout the morning. In addition, the safety of our students is my first priority. All school closings are communicated through an all call, radio, social media, television, and email communication to staff. Please make sure you have all contacts updated through final forms so you receive all the information. This is never an easy decision, and it is impossible to predict the weather.
In closing, please take some time over the next few weeks and enjoy your family and loved
ones. We currently live in a world that only communicates and highlights the negative, but my
hope is that we talk with our children about everything that is good in the world. We have the
ability to choose our attitude every day. Go Eagles!
