Parents and students,

We are all going through something that none of us has ever experienced. We have many unknowns, but one thing is certain that Paxton will rise to the challenge! I want to assure you that the board, Superintendent Hughes, county office staff, Mr. Jackson and I are working hard to provide the best possible plan moving forward. Many of you have heard the statement by the governor and have many questions. I have a conference call with Mr. Hughes and the other principals tomorrow at noon. I hope to have more information for all of you tomorrow afternoon. I will try my best to keep you all informed. Many times in life we go through difficult times, but how we respond to those times is the most important thing. I am honored to be your principal and there is no stronger community than Paxton. I do not believe that we should panic, but stick together as we move forward. I am praying for you all.
