School Safety Letter From Our Superintendent
I truly believe that every employee and volunteer associated with Tri-Central Community Schools has the same top priority, the safety of our students. Twenty-five years ago, our goal was to prepare our students to become productive, patriotic citizens of our society. Ten to fifteen years ago, it became all about passing a state mandated test. Now, in today’s world safety has taken over the top spot. No goals or dreams can be accomplished if the students do not feel safe. This is why so much time and resources are now dedicated to safety in the educational world.
