Update from the Superintendent 

The end of the semester is closing in and we are very pleased with the progress and efforts that the students have demonstrated this fall. The school year has developed into one to remember and has been marked by a number of grand occasions. The school building was dedicated this fall, and we reburied a time capsule to commemorate the school’s 120 th anniversary. We will be uploading a video on our Facebook page to show everyone what was placed in the time capsule. I want to thank school districts, parents, students, and families for your cooperation as we are navigating in uncharted waters, in terms of COVID. We are all disappointed that we cannot conduct the same operating procedures that the school has had in the past and we are definitely disappointed that our regularly scheduled events that we normally would have had to be canceled.

As we head into the holiday season please be mindful of your family’s public interactions and COVID safety precautions, as this will be a challenging time in terms COVID management for SDSBVI. We hope that you have a safe and enjoyable holiday season.

Yours in Education,

Dan Trefz, Superintendent
