This will be the last week of school at Timber Lake. The last meals will be delivered and picked up, the last lessons turned in (maybe), grades posted, awards given. I just can’t say enough about how dedicated the people at our school have been. Through the whole pandemic situation, they have been determined to do their best to see that no kid slips through the cracks. I wish all the school staff could now enjoy a well-deserved summer break. Some of them will, but we know the administrators and their teams will be (or already are) planning for what the 2020-2021 school year will look like. A calendar was adopted months ago that shows school beginning with teacher inservice on August 12 and 13 and the first day of classes on August 19 but as we know, everything is subject to change due to the virus. So thanks, teachers and other school staff, for all you continue to do.

One big item of unfinished business at the school is the salary negotiations for the professional staff. That was delayed because of the uncertainty of state aid due to the shortfall in state revenue. We thought that meant the legislature would have a special session in June, and they might, but the Governor is waiting to find out if the federal COVID aid can be used to make up the revenue shortfall. Stay tuned for that.
