HAVEN E-NEWS | MARCH 15, 2020

Dear Families,

This is a confusing and trying time as we adjust to what is our new normal (at least for the foreseeable future). As we prepare our children for at-home learning, please remember that our incredible  Haven teaching staff have the Herculean task of switching from in-classroom instruction to e-learning in very short time. Let's show them kindness, patience, and GRATITUDE as they navigate this change!

As a PTA, we will work with school administrators on how we best assist Haven families. As it is a fluid situation, we will pass along any new information as we receive it. Below, is current information from the Haven PTA and the D65 PTA Council.

We wish you and your families peace, calm, and good health. 

Sincerely,
Haven PTA Executive Committee
