Super Chat

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

In this episode, Superintendent John Hamstra recaps the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, which was delayed three weeks due to the heat and masking requirements related to COVID-19.

The dedication and ribbon-cutting ceremony for the "Inspired by Excellence" Stadium Renovation project took place on September 19.  $1.5 million dollars was privately raised - no tax dollars were used - for two FieldTurf surfaces and other upgrades.  

Mr. Hamstra also gives an update on the constructions projects - both the new schools and the high school renovations. 

Be sure to follow Mr. Hamstra on Twitter @SLSDSuper for the very latest highlights from throughout the district.
