New Superintendent – Message to Staff & Community

Dear Concrete School District Community:

This has been a heart-wrenching week for all of us. It was a terrible shock to lose Superintendent Barrett suddenly. As a board, we are deeply grateful to Concrete School District staff, our larger community, and the many friends and colleagues from neighboring districts who have pulled together to wrap our students and schools in care and support at this challenging time.

The Concrete School District Board of Directors appointed Carrie Crickmore as the new interim superintendent at the May 3, 2023 special school board meeting. Ms. Crickmore has a diverse range of skills, having served the district in a variety of roles, including the Director of State and Federal Programs, Curriculum Director, Assessment Coordinator, Human Resources, and previous Special Education Director. We are confident that she has the ability to collaborate effectively with others and to provide thoughtful leadership for the benefit of all students, staff, and families. Her primary focus will be to support our teachers and staff as they maintain continuity for our students through this time of transition.

Carrie Crickmore, Interim Superintendent

We will continue to keep you informed as we determine the next steps for moving the district forward. In the meantime, please take good care of yourselves and each other. Life is precious, and being in a community such as ours is a deep comfort.

Warmest regards,

The Concrete School District Board of Directors

Loss Of Staff Member – April 30th 2023

Dear Parents/Guardians of Concrete School District students:

Messages such as this are so difficult to deliver to our school community. We are deeply saddened to inform you of the passing of Concrete School District Superintendent Wayne Barrett. Our heartfelt condolences are with his family and friends during this very difficult time.

Mr. Barrett has served as Concrete’s superintendent since 2017. He wore many hats while serving our district and his legacy to our community will be honored and remembered. 

Death is always a sad and troubling event and can often have a profound effect on our students, staff and community. It is extremely important for children and staff to have an opportunity to talk through their feelings and reactions in an age appropriate manner. We are sharing this information with you so that you may share with your child when and how you feel it most appropriate. 

Please know that we are grieving alongside our entire community, but will do our best to help everyone through this grief and have many supports available through the Northwest Education District 189. We strongly encourage you to reach out should you like additional support from the school district, should you wish to receive a list of community resources, or if you have any concerns regarding your child’s reaction to this loss.

I sincerely thank you for your concern and thoughts during this difficult time. Please keep Mr. Barrett’s family and friends in your thoughts.

With sincere appreciation,

Concrete School District Board of Directors, Administrators, and Staff
