Superintendent of Schools

Hello Kirtland Local School Community,                

I am so thankful for the support of all of our stakeholders which ensured we had a very successful school year as we navigated through a variety of challenges including the pandemic. Our students have demonstrated amazing resilience, adaptability and focus. As life continues to put up obstacles for our children, they have found a way to persevere through them and find success. These are lifelong lessons that will help all of them for years to come. Our staff is to be commended for providing a sense of normalcy while ensuring that our learning opportunities and extracurricular activities continued. They have found ways to build meaningful relationships with students and close any academic areas of weakness created from learning in a variety of settings in the prior school year. Our parents and guardians are to be thanked and commended for their ongoing support. We are so fortunate to have the involvement at home helping children and volunteering at the schools! I also would like to thank our community for the constant support for our students and staff. All of our community support groups have put their arms around this school district to provide us what was needed!

We look forward to welcoming our students back on August 18 after they have a much deserved and wonderful summer break!
