Class of 2022


Wow!  Another great feat completed by our awesome class of 2022!  You have completed a week of Level 3 remote learning.  You logged in to more zoom sessions that you ever imagined you would, learned how to become more tech savvy, and became much more independent with your learning!  You are learning how to adapt to situations that are not always ideal, however these skills will serve you well in the future!  We miss all of you and we hope that we are back on-site soon.


  1.  Continue to think and dream about the career that you would like to pursue after you graduate in 2022.   Health care careers are in high demand and this demand is expected to continue for many years to come.   Consider attending the Virtual Health Summit to learn more about these opportunities.  See the attachment!
  2.  Free WiFi Internet Access – see the attachment!
  3.  Troubles with Zooms or other tech issues??? – see the attachment and/or contact our CHS Tech Specialist   Jayne Leusink.  Jayne.Leusink@k12.sd.us

  5.  Remember to keep focused and to always do your own personal best. You need 16 credits by the end of   the 20/21 school year to be classified as a senior.  Don’t let covid get in the way of your graduation and   your future dreams. You are the CLASS OF 2022!
