A Message from Mr. Ridder, Superintendent

Superintendent Notes


Dear Parents,


As of today, February 1st, the COVID numbers in our school are very manageable, a trend that is consistent with our county numbers. I am very proud of our school community in their support of keeping the virus numbers under control. More good news is that our employees will be able to get their first vaccine shot on March 4th with the second shot being available in early April. We do not want to get lax with our efforts because the virus can return rather quickly. Putting this virus nightmare behind us as soon as possible so we can get back to normal is a priority.


It is that time of year when we begin making plans for the next year. The calendar for 2021-22 is pretty well set with a start date of August 23rd. (This is the earliest date that we are allowed to start per directive of the Governor of Iowa). The elementary staff is preparing for new arrivals in Pre3, Pre4, and Kindergarten. If your child is not already attending preschool, please follow the directions in this newsletter to get them registered. If they are attending preschool, they will be rolled over for next year’s classes and you will not need to re-register them.


Remember that February 2nd is Groundhog’s Day. I know it is not a significant holiday by any means, however, I always use the date as a sign that the end of winter is coming and spring is on the horizon. We all need a positive boost and seeing spring in the near future is something to look forward to.


Thank you for all you do for Logan-Magnolia.
