Message from Superintendent Scott Rolfe
Valley Local will be in attendance on Monday, March 16th. As a district we feel our staff will be prepared to distribute the extended assignments by the end of day on Monday. By attending Monday, this allows parents one more day to prepare for child care and allows our staff to have one more day of regular instruction with the students. Please stay tuned for further updates as we continue to make our plans. At this point, we do know students will NOT be in attendance March 17 - April 5th.

Thank you,
Scott Rolfe
