back to the future

Dear Rocket Family,

It’s time…back to school, back to normal, and #BackToTheFuture. That’s our theme as we eagerly begin our 2022-2023 school year.  Our goal continues to be empowering and engaging students every day, and we are thrilled to be able to get back to some basics in academics, as well as in the traditions we value so much in Crittenden County.   

I am honored to serve as your superintendent. Having been a lifelong resident of Crittenden County, I want to work with you to make a difference for our students. As we start the year, I want to let you know that your Board of Education has been diligently working all summer to address how the water issue may impact our campuses.  I am proud to report confidently that through a partnership with emergency management, and our city and county governments, Marion is now predicted to be able to support the water needs of the schools.  Rest assured, we have a back-up plan in the event that the water supply diminishes.  Director Slinker from Emergency Management has helped us to create a back-up plan that can be put in place if the need arises.  At the elementary school, we are also in the process of hooking to Crittenden-Livingston Water District as soon as the materials arrive. 

I know you may also have questions around Covid-19 and the quarantines that have been such a huge part of our lives for the last two years. Covid isn’t gone, but it is definitely moving into a new phase.  We want you to know that in our commitment to get back to normal, we will be treating Covid just as we will treat any other virus, such as the flu or strep. This means using good judgment and keeping students home until fever has resolved for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medications.  As always, we ask that you follow any advice given by a physician. 

As summer comes to an end, it’s my wish that you enjoy these remaining days and look forward to the new year with excitement and positivity.  We are anxious to see the hallways and classrooms of our schools full of students and staff as we head #BacktotheFuture.  My door is always open, and I invite you to contact me with any questions or concerns.

--Tonya Driver, Superintendent
