It is official…we are back in session. Yesterday morning, I had the opportunity to watch the first day unfold at each of our great schools. It was fun to witness the excitement and anticipation that coincides with the start of a new school year. There were lots of high fives, knuckle bumps, and hugs throughout the district. It was truly great to see students and staff back in the buildings; let the routine begin. I look forward to the possibilities that this school year will bring.
As parents and community members, we invite you to take part in our schools and programs. This district, along with its students and staff, continue to be blessed by you. Your ongoing partnership and support allows us to provide more opportunities for our young people. I hope that you will come to our facilities to attend a musical/theatrical performance, board or community meeting, extra-curricular event, or any of the other activities that bring people to our schools.
I want to remind all that there will now be more pedestrian, bike, and vehicle traffic on our roads. Please help to keep our kids and community members safe by paying attention to them and adhering to speed limits. Last year, we saw an increase of vehicles blowing through bus stops with the red, STOP paddles extended. We need the adherence of all drivers to stop when paddles are out. Everyone must stop…both oncoming traffic as well as those vehicles behind the bus. Again, please help keep our kids safe.
Lastly, please know that I want to hear from you. Send me an email, give me a call, stop by the office, or invite me to your location. I am proud to both live and work in this community; I am always eager to talk about all things Nine Mile. Here’s to a fantastic 2019-2020!
Brian L Talbott, Superintendent
