Superintendent's Message

Message from the Superintendent



Another school year has ended!  Many thanks to everyone for a great school year.  Students, parents, staff and members of the Elgin community are to be commended for making the 2017-2018 school year a very successful one.


Elgin High School graduated its fifth class from the “new facility” on Saturday, May 26 2018.  The senior class is made up of many fantastic and awesome students.  We wish the graduating seniors the very best as they pursue other life interests.


I want to commend the Elgin bus drivers for their patience and safe driving this past school year.  Elgin bus drivers are very much appreciated for delivering the students to and from school in a safe manner.


School safety has always been a high priority in an educational environment.  In March,  Elgin Local contracted with the Marion County Sheriff’s Department to have the daily services of a School Resource Officer (SRO).  This service will continue into the 2018-2019 school year.


The 2018-2019 school year begins with the first day of classes scheduled for Monday, August 20, 2018.


Enjoy summer vacation, be safe and we will see everyone back on August 20.


Again, many thanks to the Elgin community for the cooperation and support this past year.
