Super Chat

The December edition of the "Super Chat" podcast is now online at www.southwestschools.org/podcast.

In this episode, Superintendent John Hamstra previews the annual Food & Clothing Drive, the district's largest community outreach project of the year.  Collection will take place the week of December 7-11, with distribution set for the morning of Saturday, December 19.  

Mr. Hamstra also provides an overview of the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on the school community, recapping the case numbers to date, and stressing the importance of observing the same safety and prevention measures at activities held outside of school (namely holiday gatherings, travel, youth sports and social gatherings) that are enforced during the school day.

Finally, Mr. Hamstra gives the monthly update on the constructions projects - both the new schools and the high school renovations.
