Dear Students and Families of Mt. Pulaski CUSD #23,
Welcome to the new school year and the many new opportunities that lie ahead of our students and community. I would like to introduce myself to you as Fred Lamkey, the Mt. Pulaski Superintendent of Schools.
The past few months have presented us with challenges we never imagined we would face in school, at home and in our workplace. As we start this school year, we all recognize we have a different perspective and some cases different practices and procedures to manage the same challenges we have faced in years past. Please know that the staff of Mt. Pulaski schools are working diligently to make sure these new circumstance do not detour your students from their high quality education.
I am excited to work with the board, administration, teachers, staff, students and community to continue our current success. I also want you to know that Mt. Pulaski Schools are committed to building on these successes to be on a continual path of improvement. Mt. Pulaski is fortunate to boast the staff and resources that can support student learning in and out of the classroom. We will always be looking to see how we can help our students better achieve and succeed.
An essential component to this process is the cultural foundation established through the implementation of the Mt. Pulaski Student Handbook. The handbook informs students and families of policies, procedures and expectations that allow our children to receive a high level education. It is very important to take time to become familiar with the handbook so that parents/guardians and students can have meaningful conversations when it comes time to make decisions for school. Our teachers and staff will also be reviewing the handbook and guiding our students through this process.
Adhering to the policies, procedures and expectations of the Mt. Pulaski Student Handbook is the responsibility of every student and their families. The pages of the handbook have been reviewed by building handbook committees and the Mt. Pulaski Board of Education to ensure all policies, procedures and expectations are in the best interest of our students.
If you have any questions, please reach out to administration in your student’s school or contact me at our district office. We are always happy to assist you! I would like to wish you the best of luck for this upcoming school year and continue to show your Hilltop Pride!
Fredrick A Lamkey
Mt. Pulaski Superintendent
