The annual retirement reception sponsored by the ISD 279 School Board honored 75 retirees with a combined total of 1,758 years of service to students in our school district. Nearly 70% of this year’s retirees have worked for our school district for 20 or more years, with the overall group divided about equally between licensed and non-licensed staff.

Supt. Kate Maguire and members of the ISD 279 School Board recognized and thanked each retiree individually for their contributions to help all students achieve our mission. OARE members volunteered to help serve refreshments and beautiful music was provided by the Osseo Senior High String Quartet.
