December 1, 2021


Please enjoy this week’s edition of Pirate Talk, featuring the latest news, social media and upcoming dates.


VIDEO - A look at what is happening around the district



As children ages 5-11 are now able to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, the district is planning to move to optional masking for K-12 students beginning with the start of the second semester on January 24, 2022. Preschool students will continue to mask. This will allow all parents/guardians who choose to have their child receive the vaccine ample time to reach the full five weeks to be considered fully vaccinated.  Masks will still be required on school buses based on the CDC mandate and students considered to be a close contact to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 must wear a mask as required by the Mask to Stay, Test to Play guidance. 


A look at some of the exceptional accomplishments from around the district in academics, activities and athletics.
