Note from Superintendent Mark Johnson on Bond Passage
February 22, 2019
Hello Nooksack Valley! I wanted to take a moment to express my sincere appreciation for supporting our recent bond election. As we started this school year my “word” for the year was “gratitude”. I wanted to make sure I was taking the time to recognize and appreciate the many blessings in life, both big and small, and not simply “move on to the next thing” (as is my tendency).
This bond passage is a BIG thing, and I am so very grateful to our community. Our Pioneer Country is a community that has always overwhelmingly supported our children, this time in the form of voting “yes” in order to provide necessary facilities. My gratitude is equally overwhelming!
A special thanks go to our facilities committee who spent about one year analyzing the needs, determining potential solutions and corresponding costs, and making final recommendations to our school board. Scott Mitchell and Jennifer Lautenbach served as co-chairs for the campaign, both working tirelessly to ensure we reached the 60% “yes” requirement for bond approval.
My commitment to all of you is to steward every single dollar to ensure we get the very best value we can. You all deserve that, as do our children.
With Great Gratitude,
Note to Community on Snow Days
Hello Nooksack Valley. I wanted to take a moment and talk with you about our recent days cancelled because of weather and road conditions. First, know that student and staff safety is our number one priority in making these decisions. Second, know also that the final decisions rest solely with me as the superintendent. Here are other factors that come into play during these times;
In the final analysis, these are not easy decisions to make, but we always try to error on the side of safety. Most of time, I think we get it right. Not always.
Thanks for your patience,
Superintendent of Schools
Nooksack Valley Middle School

FROM THE NURSE: Please make a practice of checking your student’s hair for head lice and nits. This time of year, we see an increase in the number of cases and need your help in preventing the spread. The most effective screening occurs when parents check their children at home, treat if any are found, and make efforts to remove the nits. Please remind your student not to share hats with their friends. If you have any questions regarding head lice, please contact Lynnette Ondeck @360-966-7561, ext 3117.
