Welcome back to school! To say this summer was a whirlwind would be an understatement. Just like all of yours, this summer was an unprecedented one filled with plans, adjusting plans, and adjusting them again! I want to thank everyone for their support, flexibility, and kind words. The encouragement I received throughout the summer kept me motivated and was a constant reminder as to why I love the Corpus Christi School community!
This year we are starting things a little differently than in years past. As we have discussed, The Hybrid School Plan was chosen to ensure that all children are prepared and well aware of the new and sometimes challenging expectations that we face. Please know that the faculty and staff are working tirelessly to prioritize children’s health and education at a high caliber level. Teachers and other faculty have attended professional development programs to prepare for this upcoming school year. We continue to learn new methods to effectively teach students whether it be in person, through hybrid method, or if need be, fully virtual.
My focus for the school year, particularly with the current environment, is to rely on science and data to help formulate my decisions on the status of the school. I acknowledge that sometimes these decisions may be frustrating to parents and guardians but I can’t stress enough how important the safety and health of the children, faculty, and staff is to me. I will continue to openly communicate school plans to the community as soon as I can. I hope you understand that school plans may sometimes change quickly and I may not be able to provide as much advance notice as I would like. Please bear with me as we continue to navigate these unknown waters together.
As always, I am very excited for this upcoming school year even if things around us are a bit different. I look forward to seeing and safely interacting with each child. I continue to pray for the Corpus Christi School Community. I know together we will make this year a memorable one!
