Update from the Superintendent 

Spring is approaching and the school year is getting closer to ending.  I cannot believe how fast this year has gone.  We are making plans for the spring concert and for graduation.  As of now, we are going to hold these events at SDSBVI and we are going to open them to family and close friends.  They will not be open to the public as of now.  If that changes, I will make updates to this communication.  The students are enjoying the pleasant weather outside and are looking forward to the opportunities that come when the weather gets nice out.

We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and efforts in keeping our students and staff safe during COVID and we will continue to be careful in our planning until we can officially go back to normal operating procedures.  Summer School may still need to look a little different as we may not be able to operate as normal.  Our typical schedule and offerings will need to be altered; more information will be sent to parents and school districts in March.

This year 10 large screen TV monitors have been purchased with the help of the SD Foundation for the Visually Impaired and many new laptops and iPads were purchased for teacher and student use.  We have made great strides in updating our technology infrastructure and we will continue to make updates in the coming years.  As always, I look forward to seeing you all this spring and hope you have a successful end to the 2020-21 school year.
