Superintendent's Message

To our families and community members,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We at Barnwell School District 45 could not be successful without the support of our community and all of you. We are so appreciative, and from the bottom of our hearts, we thank you!


At the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, we shared the following words, “In a time of uncertainty, one thing is for certain: we have an incredible community and wonderfully supportive businesses, organizations, and stakeholders. We feel our Barnwell community has been supporting our school families with well-wishes, thoughts, and prayers. We are grateful to be in Barnwell, and we are fortunate we have local businesses, organizations, and individuals who care so deeply about our school district and our children.” How true this is! We have seen, throughout the pandemic we’ve all been facing, our community, organizations, BHS alumni classes, churches, and more groups reach out to the district and provide support in so many ways.


To our families and community, thank you for working with us to provide for our children’s needs. You have always been our partners in educating your children, and that has become so much stronger throughout the uncertain times we have faced with the pandemic. While no one ever could have imagined this is how the last several months would have gone and we wish with all our hearts that our world had not faced what it has had to endure, it is so uplifting to see how our staff and community came together during this time. 

Thank you,

Crissie Stapleton
Superintendent, Barnwell School District 45
