Healthy Community

 COVID-19 recovery is on people’s minds. We want a healthy environment where we are safe and that we can enjoy.  And, we want to live our lives as easy as possible.

I will:

A healthy environment is one with clean air, water and land. Safe lakes for enjoyment and living a life with consistent lights.  I will:

A quality school is one that has ample resources and quality educators. During COVID-19, we must ensure our students, teachers and other safe members are safe and learning.
