Dear Plain Local Community,
Plain Strong! Together, we made it through the most difficult school year in the history of Plain Local Schools. I am so thankful for this community, and the support and encouragement provided to our students and staff. It was humbling to see everyone working together to ensure a safe environment where learning could take place.
There were many celebrations and accomplishments during the 2020-2021 school year, but I am especially proud of the senior class. They faced great adversity, but they responded with integrity and class. The class of 2021 is the perfect example of how our students will make an impact on our society. They understand that life is full of obstacles and they faced a huge challenge and overcame fear, anger, and multiple hurdles. Thank you, seniors!
Our focus now turns to the fall of 2021. My goal is to return to normal as much as possible in all areas. We will begin implementing a new literacy series at the elementary level and start a new construction trades partnership with the local trades’ council. We have learned many lessons through the pandemic and will continue with practices that enhanced our partnership and communication with parents. The district will continue the option of virtual conferences and meetings. Families will also have on-demand access to important information. We will use the momentum of this past school year to make us better for the future.
Finally, this fall is important as we welcome all students back to our school buildings. Each child’s social and emotional wellness is a top priority in our planning. All students and families have been impacted by the pandemic and this fall will be a new experience for many. Our goal is to ensure a smooth, positive, and enjoyable return to normalcy. We look forward to the 2021-2022 school year with great hope and excitement. Go Eagles!
