School's Out for Summer!

School's Out for Summer!
Posted on 06/07/2019

Hello SDMA Families, Staff, and Stakeholders.

Today is the day......the final student day of the 2018-2019 school year!  Congratulations to our students and staff for a job well done. We have much to be thankful for and proud of in the School District of the Menomonie Area (SDMA).  

As we finish this school year and continue preparing for 2019-2020, please consider the following information and reminders:  

  1. Summer School- The SDMA is offering many learning opportunities this summer. Whether or not students are attending summer school, it is very important for parents to consider prioritizing continued academic growth during the summer months. If nothing else, a routine that includes some reading, writing, and practicing math skills on a regular basis could have a tremendous impact on the future success of our children.
  2. Summer Meals- The SDMA is participating in a school nutrition program that provides free summer meals for all children in our community 18 years of age and under. Starting on June 17, free school meals will be available for all children in our summer school program and for any other children who wish to eat at one of our summer school sites.  More information about free summer meals is available on the school district website.  
  3. Summer Hours- Other than summer school and other scheduled activities, school offices will be closed for most of the summer.  The Administrative Service Center (located on Pine Ave.) will be open during the summer from 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday-Thursday. Appointments for other dates and times may also be arranged as needed.

Thank you to everyone in the SDMA who have worked so hard to provide so many wonderful experiences and opportunities for the children in our community.  While we are very excited about the new and returning staff members that have already been hired for next school year, we will miss our teachers and other staff members who are retiring or moving on to new endeavors.  We wish all of you the very best!  

Have an enjoyable, relaxing, and safe summer!
