Dear Silver Bluff Stakeholders:

It feels great to say, “WELCOME BACK!” Today is the first day of the 2020-2021 school year – a year that will be remembered like no other. I have found so much joy in welcoming our students back. The coronavirus pandemic has confronted our world with an unprecedented situation. Regardless of the challenges, the start of every school year brings the promise of new beginnings and possibilities. At Silver Bluff, our focus will remain on the safety and well-being of all.

I am optimistic about the opportunities this school year will bring and the relationships that will develop as we work together to create a brighter future for tomorrow. As you know, “it takes a village.” I encourage each one of us to become an active member of our village. Together, we will be able to provide the best for our students.

I am honored and humbled to serve this great community. If I can ever be of assistance to you or your family, please do not hesitate to contact me.

-Dr. Katie Briscoe
