Physical Distancing, Social Connectivity
Please join me in thanking our healthcare workers and first responders who are on the frontline in the fight against COVID-19. The selfless act of putting service over self speaks to their character and ongoing commitment to community, state and nation. Join me in thanking them for their dedication and commitment to our health and safety. This is an extraordinary crisis that is taxing the will of all of us. As we work collectively to solve this crisis, please keep in mind those whose lives have been impacted, and more importantly those that have lost a loved one. Our prayers and thoughts are with them.
We are providing you with the most current information in this newsletter, but know by the time this is published, some of this information may be outdated. The rapidly expanding response to this crisis has our system taxed as we work to address immediate needs, while keeping operations moving forward and preparing for our students to return.
During this time, I do want to emphasize the expectation for physical distancing. Creating physical distance is one of the best ways to flatten the curve. However, it does not mean we cannot have social connectivity. Social connections can occur through phone calls, writing letters, emails, text messages, google hangouts, chats, videos etc.
Now is the time to keep our physical distance, but practice “Distant Socializing”
. We are a community that draws strength from each other. Let these temporary conditions compel us to strengthen our family bonds and enhance our community connections.
