Dear Parents and Guardians,

I must say that I am impressed by our students on a daily basis. I have had the opportunity to see them in class, in the cafeteria, at recess, on Zoom, and they are doing such a great job of rising to the challenges of hybrid learning and meeting expectations for both health & safety and learning. The teachers and I are so grateful to see our students back at Parkside in he Hybrid model, and look forward to hearing about the great things our Cyber students are doing virtually.

Preparing and implementing lessons both in person and on Zoom is no easy task for our teachers, but the Parkside Teachers are making strides daily to provide the best possible learning environment for your children. The process has not been without bumps in the road, but your patience and support as we navigate this model of schooling has been deeply appreciated by all of us. This community is so supportive of our children, school, and staff--we cannot thank you enough!

Please continue to communicate with your teachers, school counselor, and me if you have any issues that we can assist with to work together as a team.

Please take a few minutes to read through the important announcements below. Follow us on Twitter at @ParksideES for more photos and news.

Best Regards,

Tara Young
