Principal’s Message

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,


Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! 


Things will be different this year at Unsworth.  Some of these differences will be frequent hand washing, physical distancing in line-ups, wearing of masks and other physical barriers.  Something that has not changed is the unwavering commitment of our staff to support our students academically, socially and emotionally.  More than ever, it is important for our staff to develop strong bonds with their students to determine what their needs are and how to meet these needs.  This pandemic has been challenging for everyone but with kindness, patience and grace, we can get through this together.

Parental involvement is a very important aspect of every child’s education and is the primary factor in students’ success at school.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s education, you should first contact the classroom teacher.  In our school district we are limiting the number of people in the building during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Please email your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns.

As we enter into this school year, we know that we are going to need to be flexible and ensure that our lines of communication are open.

We will update our school website with new information as it becomes available to us. If you have questions about our plan, please email either or


Yours truly,


Shawna Petersen
