Dear Families,

Hello from 163 Gale Road. Your children's voices and laughter are missed with each passing day. The school continues to move forward with so much important work, not the least of which is the program Devin Wootton laid out to you in his message this past Tuesday. Our teachers have embraced this challenge of remote learning and have spent a great deal of time the last three weeks preparing as they are looking forward to Monday and connecting with your children again.

In other important announcements, so as to help families in these challenging circumstances, we have decided to issue credits for ASK/lunch services from February 2nd forward. If you have made prior payment(s) for these services, those payments will be credited back to your student's account. Any credits will be applicable to outstanding balances, and deposits and costs for the 2020-2021 school year. Everyone will receive a statement summarizing your student's account.

Next week, contracts for the 2020-2021 school year will be sent to you in the mail. Due to these unprecedented times filled with so many challenges, we are going to extend the return date for those contracts and deposits to June 1, 2020. As I emphasize in the letter that will accompany the contract, please do not hesitate to call me at school at ext. 19 or email me to talk about any fiscal challenges caused by COVID-19. We are here to help and work with you.

While I have been able to speak to a few of you this week, I look forward to more conversations in the weeks ahead. When we do return to campus, I know we will appreciate, like never before, the face to face interactions that fill our hearts and our souls.

Take care,
