A Message From the Superintendent 12-22-2020

Dear South Central Students, Staff, Parents, Fans, and Community Members:

Looking back on the 1st semester of the school year, I can’t help but think of all of the teachers, custodians, office staff, nurses, cafeteria workers, paras, coaches, bus drivers, and administrators who have made this year what it has become. We have been able to have school, as normal, for the entire semester with few interruptions due to the efforts of those listed. Our students and families have done a fantastic job accommodating our requests as they know the value of being in school. All I can say to the community is THANK YOU for all that you have done to allow us to work with your students. We have had a great 1st half of the school year, and I look forward to the many accomplishments that will happen over the remainder of the year due to the dedication of the entire Comanche County Community to our schools’ success. Go Timberwolves!
