As Superintendent Tim Mains welcomed teachers and staff to the 2019-2020 school year on Tuesday, Sept. 3, he made special mention of those staff members who have served the district for 20, 25 and 30 years.

Each received a pin marking the milestone and was congratulated by Mains, assistant superintendents Donna Geidel and Mike Pacella, Executive Director of Human Resources Ryan Reed, as well as board of education members Cara Robertson and Kristi Kheiralla.
