Dear Pardes Community,

It was nice seeing many of you this morning when your children came to retrieve some of their belongings at school. As we begin our remote learning plan tomorrow, we, like you, are trying to find the balance of flexibility and structure as we navigate what each day will look like. We believe we have a very strong plan in place. Please click here for Ms. Lock’s UPDATED details regarding the remote learning plan. We understand that this is new for everyone, and we expect that there may be some natural glitches, so please do not worry if they should occur. We are here to support you and your children with this new format. As we have discussed in previous communications, if there are technology issues, please email your child’s teacher or advisor. If there are issues with Schoology or log-in issues, please email Ms. Strolle, and if there are issues with the remote learning plan, please reach out to Ms. Lock. 

As we all settle into this new normal, we look forward to providing ways for your family to remain connected to our amazing Pardes community.   Please look for a new Pardes@Home reference page on the school website on Thursday morning, which will be continually updated with tips, resources, and activities to bring our community together.

I will continue to communicate frequently, updating you with any changes and new information. As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Kind regards,
Peter Gordon
Head of School
