A Message from
Mrs. Laidlaw Otto
Dear SJE Families,
Last Thursday Governor Tony Evers extended the Safer-At-Home order until May 26, 2020. Additionally, he ordered ALL K-12 public and private schools in the State of Wisconsin remain closed for face-to-face instruction, school events, and extracurricular activities for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year.
Although our brick and mortar facility will remain closed, learning for our students will continue. Our teachers returned from Easter break refreshed and ready to meet the challenges that the upcoming weeks will bring us.
Our community has certainly faced a litany of challenges over the last month. Exploring, choosing, and implementing technology tools is at the top of the list. We are blessed to be able to maintain communication with our children and our families. We continue to work hard to find the best ways to deliver instruction and maintain contact with our families. You have been so patient with us, and we are so grateful for that.
Our teachers are making phone calls to all of our school parents over the next week. Please watch for these phone calls. We need feedback on your distance learning. More important, our concern for families reaches far beyond just providing academics for our children. We are looking forward to the opportunity to speak with parents about the challenges that the Safer-At-Home order has created for all of us.
Mary Laidlaw Otto
