Welcome to the Swanton Local School District! The school system has been serving the community of Swanton since 1897. Currently the district serves just over 1100 students in three buildings which are located in the heart of the community. Here in Swanton, “Our vision is to be the district of choice with an academic environment where student achievement is top priority, community involvement is vital, all individuals are valued and the school is a point of pride.”
The mission of the Swanton Local School District has never been more important than it is right now. The coronavirus pandemic has shown us that human beings were not meant to exist in isolation. We have seen the mental and physical toll that has been visited upon our communities due to COVID. For the students of Swanton our schools are a vital necessity that helps them to stay connected to their social support system. For this reason alone we are determined to remain open for daily in person instruction in 2021-22.
Keeping our schools open in 2021-22 will once again require a team effort. As a district we will continue to follow many of the mitigation measures that were put in place last year. I strongly encourage all those who are able to get one of the three available COVID vaccines. For those who are unvaccinated it is strongly recommended that you wear a mask while in our school buildings. The combination of wearing a mask and/or being vaccinated can not only help slow the spread of COVID but also allow individuals to avoid having to quarantine in the event of an exposure.
In 2020-21 Swanton was able to remain open for the entire school year. We helped our students and their families to have something of the old normal back in their lives. It was very inspiring to me to see the staff, students and community pull together last year to make it a success. We begin this year looking to inspire once more and we have adopted the motto, “Empowered, United we are Swanton Inspired”. We seek to empower our students to find a bright path toward their future. The faculty and staff of the Swanton Local School District is united in being all in for the kids. We can’t wait for our students to return so that we can get back to our mission to inspire our students and to be inspired by them. Go Bulldogs! #SwantonInspire
