WELCOME TO ST. CHARLES PUBLIC SCHOOLS
COVID-19 and managing the completion of a long list of construction projects have been top priorities on our school district's to do list over the past year, and will continue to be during the 2021-2022 school year.
We learned a lot from the challenges we were faced with last year. Our plans for dealing with COVID-19 are flexible enough to allow our schools to have the autonomy to respond if/when COVID-19 issues arise in our buildings. We feel prepared to deal with the potential threat of the Delta variant, future variants and anything else COVID-19 may send our way this year.
As the 2020-2021 school year came to a close, along with all of the COVID challenges, we were wrapping up a series of construction projects at our Elementary school that were funded by the 2019 referendum, and just starting a long list of projects at the High School. The High School projects will be completed in phases throughout 2021-2022. As different phases are completed, additions and renovated areas will be opened up for our students and staff. We anticipate that everything we are currently working on will be fully completed by April, 2022. You can check out a presentation I shared with the community last spring highlighting the projects we completed last year. Information on the phasing plan for the High School projects starts on page 35 of the presentation.
Our High School Principal, Dr. Bernard has created a website chronicling the progress on the High School projects. You can check it out for yourself at: https://sites.google.com/schs.k12.mn.us/schs-construction/home.
Thanks again for your support of St. Charles Public Schools.
