As we move past the anniversary date for the Great Flood of 2016, we continue to experience obstacles and inconveniences associated with the flood impact. We are grateful for the continued determination, resiliency, and support from our staff, students, parents, and all of our partners that have assisted us in protecting education during our road to recovery.

Last August, almost one year ago to date, our community experienced an event that challenged us like never before, at least in recent memory. The Flood of 2016 continues to have a far reaching impact on what we do and how we live. But as the days go by, the memories of this event become more and more crowded with pictures of courage, faith, and hope rather than that of tragedy.
