Open House Reminder

We are excited to welcome you back for the 2021-22 school year!  Primary and Intermediate buildings are providing open houses tonight at the following times:

PreK and Primary Buildings          5:00 p.m.-6:30 p.m.

Intermediate Buildings                  6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m.

This evening provides families the opportunity to meet their child’s teacher, drop off school supplies, and tour the building. During this time, in order to maintain the safety of all of our students, staff, and families, we encourage you to please:

  • Social distance to the greatest extent possible from other families
  • Utilize the hand sanitizer provided
  • Be considerate to others by limiting your time in the building to 20 minutes or less

We remind you that masks are required while in the buildings this evening, regardless of vaccination status.

Enjoy your evening, and welcome back!

Pep Rally Held to Welcome Back District #7 Staff

District #7 teachers and staff kicked off the start of the new school year by holding a virtual pep rally yesterday on their first day back!  Each building was encouraged to wear spirit wear and when the roll call occurred, each school cheered and showed their school spirit!

Speakers included District #7 Superintendent, Dr. Patrick Shelton, Board of Education President, John McDole, and Director of Curriculum, Tara Fox.

Although we would have loved to have everyone together to kick off the school year, it was still a refreshing way to bring all the staff back to the buildings and create a positive atmosphere across the district!

District #7 is ready to welcome back on our students on Wednesday, August 11th for the first (half day) of school!
