“I’m not perfect and I know I’ve made mistakes, but as we sit here on the last day for the students, we’ve been through a very, very difficult time and have been successful without having to close our schools. . get off and come home, ”he said. “We were very close on several occasions, and without the extraordinary efforts of our staff and employees, we would not have made it. We have had a lot of people who have done a lot of things that they don’t normally do and shouldn’t have done, but they still did for the good of our students and our schools. I will be eternally grateful for these efforts. I am happy to arrive on this day.
