The start of this school year has been the most challenging in all my years in education. It also happens to also be my first year as the Loyal School District Administrator. Staying on top of the changes and recommendations due to the virus has given me quite a start in this position.
It has been more years than I care to admit that I went to school for the first time. My family lived by a small town in Northern Wisconsin on a 40-acre section of land that abutted land own by relatives on all sides. I had two younger siblings, and we spent most of our time together playing games outside. Looking back now, it was much simpler time, but I would not trade that experience for anything.

The spring of 2020 presented quite an opportunity to expand classroom teaching into the virtual world. The 2020-21 school year finds teachers who are teaching students face-to-face and virtual at the same time. We have learned new technologies and techniques to better reach our students, but there are issues that present some challenges for our families and the IT department.
It's time to purchase your annual and keep those high school memories around for years to come!
