Johannesburg-Lewiston Area Schools

Hello families and Cardinal Community!

While there are many unknowns as we look to the 2020-2021 school year, there are a few things we can control.
The Board has decided to move forward with the request for a Bond. Nothing has changed from the
original information, the bond was just moved from the May ballot to the August ballot due to concerns about
voting during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Due to rules for elections, the ballot language had to be approved by the Board in May for August.

Click Here to view the video which explains the bond proposal in more detail.

Please contact any School Board member or the Superintendent with questions about the bond proposal.
Thank you for being Cardinal families!
Johannesburg-Lewiston is the Best Place to Learn!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!
HAPPY 4TH OF JULY CARDINAL FAMILIES!

Hello Cardinal families!
I hope you find yourself enjoying some summer activities and weather while staying safe and healthy. 
Take the time to read this summer.  I can't wait to hear about the books you've read when we return to school.  

Right now we are making plans to return to school. Teams of teachers, staff, and administration are working on cleaning procedures and heightened disinfecting, athletics guidelines and practices, pages and pages of plans have been made as to how school may need to look different.  We appreciate the feedback on the surveys we sent parents.  We will use that information as well to help guide us with our plans.  We are fortunate to have many people working to develop the best plans for our community.  We know we will be looking to increase technology and to be prepared to be flexible.  We miss our students tremendously and anxiously await a return to school guideline from the State and local Health Departments. It is our goal to safely meet the needs of all of our students to the best that we are able. We want parents to rest assured that we are working diligently to ensure a safe plan is available for all students to learn with Johannesburg-Lewiston Area Schools.

One item to note, our Approved Calendar for 2020-2021 is slightly different than the usual.  It has students returning to school on the 31st of August - one week before Labor Day.  It has been an odd year, and with Labor Day being late this year, getting back to school a little sooner will hopefully benefit all.

We will continue to communicate our plans as we move through the summer, knowing that things can change quickly. For now, enjoy the summer and stay healthy.  We cannot wait to welcome you back to school at the end of August!
