Suzanne Dickens, Interim Superintendent of Mason County Schools, delivered this message to all students and parents in the county.
“Students will be welcomed back to the classrooms in their respective schools on Monday, Aug. 23. Administrators, teachers and school personnel, are busily preparing for their arrival,” Dickens said. “As superintendent, I place a high emphasis on the delivery of a quality, system-wide curriculum that will prepare our students for the challenges of living in the 21st century. Join me in ‘making a difference’ in the lives of our students by supporting Mason County Schools.”
Dickens also wishes to make the school calendar well-known by everyone in the school system.
