Pierre School District staff have been busy this week working to provide meals for students, preparing lessons and learning materials for students, and ensure our buildings are clean and safe. The administrative team has been meeting regularly to share information from local and state agencies, and plan to ensure our students and staff have the resources and materials needed to continue education in the midst of this crisis.

We will continue to work with the SD Department of Health and the Department of Education and keep you updated as the situation warrants.
