February, 2021 


What a strange, bizarre year we have had thanks to a global pandemic. Despite the turmoil we have faced, we are fortunate that the District has kept folks working and employed. You have also just received a 3.5% raise which will be retroactive to July 1, 2020. You will see this money soon and I know it will be a welcome sight! 

Unfortunately, we were not able to host our Annual Social but hope that in the near future we can gather again to enjoy each others’ company. The Social may not happen but our scholarships are on again for this year so if you have a senior student headed to college check out this great opportunity for members. 

As we go forward please share the benefits of belonging to the Staff Association with others. Dues are minimal and we provide assistance if needed, scholarships to members’ students and a voice to the leadership of the District. 

Hopefully 2021 will be a better year with vaccines, herd immunity and a sense of normalcy restored to each of us.  In the meantime, be safe and stay well.
