Well it was not the news we were hoping for, but today the Governor extended the order to close schools through the rest of this school year. With this current decision, we have the guidance needed to plan for the remainder of the school year.
Our goal is to communicate, as quickly as reasonable, the answers to many of the outstanding questions. With this decision from the State, comes a wave of sadness as we think of the year ending without the usual climatic events, milestones and celebrations. Our staff will attempt to provide as much closure for these milestones as possible as we work through the fourth quarter.
We know there are plenty of logistical items that need to be resolved from picking up your child’s materials to end of the year celebrations to what summer school looks like. Please continue to exercise patience and understanding as we work through those items and more. Look for guidance and decisions on many of those plans to be shared by your principal and/or through our Wednesday district parent communication. We’re committed to finding the best path forward through the end of the year.
Thank you for all you are doing in supporting the education of your child. We could not do this alone. Be well and look for additional communications in the coming weeks on how we will proceed through the final quarter of the 2019-20 school year.
