Superintendent's Office Relocation Plan

Dear Frontier Regional and Union 38 Families and Community Members:

Fall is in full color as I write this and I am finding that our schools are nestled in one of the most picturesque areas anywhere. From the hills of Conway to the base of Sugarloaf we are surrounded by true beauty. I continue to be astonished at how lucky we are to be members of our four communities.
