August 2021 Superintendent Letter
Dear USD #416 Wildcat Family,
We have entered into the month of August and school will beginning soon! I hope every student and family had an enjoyable summer! We look forward to seeing our returning students and welcoming our new families into our schools!
There will be many different activities throughout the month of August as we gear up for the school year. Please visit our website and the different school calendars to keep you up-to-date on the upcoming events. School will begin for our 6th and 9th Graders on August 16th. All other students will return to school on August 17th. We will welcome our preschoolers on August 18th.
We have had a lot of construction projects occurring over the summer. The most notable projects have been the new parking lot at LMS and RES. We have also installed a new playground at RES for the students and community to enjoy! Work at Circle Grove continues and we expect our preschool to move back out to Circle Grove in January 2022. Work on the High Wind Shelter at LMS will begin very soon. We are also finalizing the design plans for the high school addition and the remodel at Broadmoor Elementary School. The BES remodel will take place during the school year so we will ask for patience and flexibility by all. If all goes as planned, most construction projects will be completed by August 2022. We appreciate the community’s support of our school district with these much needed safety and facility improvements. It will be exciting to see the transformation when all projects are completed!
If you have any questions or comments, please contact your child’s school so they can help answer your questions or concerns. I wish everyone a great and happy school year!
