Principal's Message

I am excited to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year at Russell Elementary! 

We ended last year in a manner that we have never done before and we are starting the school year in a manner in which we have never done either. We have students returning on campus and students entering district remote learning classrooms. Please know, the school district and staff of Russell have been working diligently to make sure we are ready when your child(ren) start school in a couple of weeks. We are excited to have them back in class! For the past six years, I have had the privilege of working at Russell with amazing staff members dedicated to the advancement of our students’ health and safety, social/emotional well-being, happiness, and academics. Our top priority will be student and staff safety. Our goal is to implement strategies and routines to try and ensure the best possible learning environment to maintain in-person learning this year. At Russell, we are responsible, respectful, and safe every day. While the daily routines of school will look different this year, we are fully committed to our students and families. We will take school one day at a time while preparing for weeks at a time making necessary changes with the well-being of your child(ren) and our community at the forefront of every decision. Russell is a wonderful community to be part of and we are looking forward to this year! Please do not hesitate to call or email if you have any questions, comments, or concerns. 



Mrs. Vickie Buck
