Dear Fellow Citizens of Carroll County:
I am beyond saddened for the hardship that closing our schools has caused to our families and to our community. Nothing that I say can take that hardship away, and I promise that we will return to school as soon as we safely can.
The teachers, administrators, and support staff of our school district are all educators, and we entered this profession in large part because we love seeing our students each day. With our NTI process in place, we have shifted instruction online and remote, but we all know that nothing can replace a good day of school.
Nonetheless, we, along with everyone in our community, are making the best of the current situation. I am confident that we are going to emerge on the other side of this a better school district, and a better community.
I want to take a moment to recognize some special members of our school family who have made us proud throughout this COVID-19 situation.
