Conserve Water

Weeks of very hot weather, coupled with little rain, have taken their toll. Although we received some rain earlier this week, it’s not enough to make up for months of below-average precipitation.

Although, at the moment, our wells are still producing sufficient water to meet demand, this will soon change if we don’t get some significant rainfall. Officials hope to head off this scenario by asking residents to begin voluntarily conserving water, before greater restrictions have to be formally imposed.

An Uncertain Plan

We are facing an unprecedented time in every facet of our lives due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and that includes our schools, as districts struggle to plan for the upcoming academic year, which is nearly a month away.

Each day without an official strategy begs more questions. At the very least, we know full remote learning must be an option for families that wish to choose it. We have also heard of families potentially placing small groups of children together to be homeschooled for the year.

We understand the demand by parents and teachers for a concrete plan. The next few months for students, parents, teachers and administrators will all look very different based on what is decided, and all involved will need every possible day to prepare.
