Superintendent Message

Dr. Michael J. Byrne, Superintendent

This fall, I’ve been visiting our schools and am seeing first-hand the excitement and creativity taking place in our classrooms. It is truly a privilege to be a part of Kirby School District 140. Our community is full of energetic and dedicated individuals who are committed to ensuring our students receive the best educational opportunities while attending our schools.

As a reminder, Parent/Teacher Conferences will be held in all elementary and middle schools on Monday, November 24 from 1:00 pm – 8:00 pm and on Tuesday, November 25 from 8:00 am – 3:00 pm. Conferences offer an opportunity to establish a cooperative home-school partnership with the common goal of helping your student learn and feel successful. These one-on-one meetings are a great way for you to ask questions and review your student’s academic, social, and behavioral progress in school.

With the Thanksgiving holiday upon us, I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to the staff, parents, and community members who enthusiastically contribute so much to our District.  Great communities have great schools and we are so appreciative of your support. On behalf of Kirby School District 140 and the Board of Education, I would like to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!  Enjoy!

Michael J. Byrne, Ed.D.
