I am so sorry to hear this bad news; Karen, thank you for your years of hard work in an un-fun job, on behalf of our community and the kids. Good luck... be strong.

This is a big loss for the PVSD community. Karen has done so much for our district, as well as doing so much of the "heavy lifting" to establish a new, permanent home for Windmill Preschool. Thank you Karen for all that you have done for the community, and best of luck going forward.
