SPRING LAKE HEIGHTS — Superintendent John Spalthoff delivered a goal update to the school board on Monday night, reporting Spring Lake Heights School reached certain goalposts despite its closure in March due to the novel coronavirus.

The superintendent’s talking points included demand for the 2020-2021 preschool program.

“Both programs are at capacity for 2021, which makes me proud,” Mr. Spalthoff said.


The superintendent also discussed the school’s ongoing push for an enhanced math curriculum, which has temporarily slowed due to the coronavirus: That initiative’s status quo effectively remains unchanged since March, according to Mr. Spalthoff, with the exception a “math interventionist”  hired for the coming academic year.
