Supe's On: Let's make 2020 a great year

Dr. Jarod Larson, BVSD superintendent
Happy New Year – Welcome to 2020!
I hope your 2019 was filled with happiness, fulfillment, and success. The New Year marks an opportunity for renewed focus and energy. Regardless of what aspirations you may have, I would strongly encourage that you post it where you can see it daily. A consistent visual reminder of a goal helps to maintain focus. Success is a direct result of an individual’s ability to get committed, be disciplined, and stay focused. So, whatever you aspire to be – post it where you can see it every day and make 2020 all that you want it to be. 
January is forecasted to be a cold month. It is critical that students dress appropriately for the cold weather. Hats, coats, and gloves are essential for a student’s safety. Whether riding the bus, driving, or walking to school, dressing for the cold weather is critical. Please, reinforce the importance of appropriate winter dress with your child. In the unlikely event school is in session and your child is unable to attend due to travel issues, contact your respective school, and the absence will be excused.
The deadline to get your child’s semester 2 bus pass is Jan. 10. The deadline must be met for your child to be able to continue riding the bus for semester 2. We greatly appreciate timely cooperation with bus pass purchases. Contact information for bus pass purchase is: Brandon Valley Transportation Facility, 812 E. Redwood Blvd., Brandon, SD 57005, phone (605) 582-3514 or visit (webmall internet address)
Semester 1 ends on Jan. 9. There is no school in the Brandon Valley School District on Friday, Jan. 10 or Monday, Jan. 20 for Staff In-service and Training.
Let’s make 2020 a great year - Go Lynx!
