From the Principal's Desk
What a difference a few days can make in changing the way we do things here at Epiphany! I am so proud of my faculty and staff for their dedication and hard work this week, jumping into this distance learning program. Finding out about the mandated school closures last Friday evening, after our students had left us for the long weekend, was overwhelming....for a few moments. After the initial shock wore off, the Epiphany faculty and staff jumped right into "GO mode". We are so grateful to all of you who made the initial distribution of materials and texts so quick and easy this week. We realize that it is an adjustment for all of us and that our student learners might need some time to get used to the new expectations and norms. Being that they are a generation of technology users has definitely put some of them in their "comfort zone". It is some like me, who needed a few days to figure out some of the technology platforms! Please know that we are with you in this educational endeavor and that we know that your work and home life must also fit into this new schedule as well. We are here to help and answer your questions as well as to engage your children in learning in the week ahead.
Please drop off any completed work in the drop box today, or at the pick up times in Live Oak and Branford, if your student has finished this week's assignments. Keep ALL of their texts at your home; only the designated assigned pages from the consumable books, should be turned back into us, with the student's name on every page. Daily check in between
5 am to 10 am is a MUST for anyone to be considered present for the day, in addition to completing the assigned work.
Report cards were emailed today, so look for this new means of communication.
Take some time to rest and regroup this weekend with your family. You SO deserve it. For those of you who work in the medical, retail and emergency systems professions, we thank you for your continued service to our community at this challenging time.
We are praying for all of our Epiphany families.
Yours In Christ,
Rita M. Klenk

At this time, no one can predict where COVID-19 might spread or how severe the outbreak might be. In the event of an outbreak in your community, as a parent/caregiver, your first concern is about how to protect and take care of your children and family. Knowing important information about the outbreak and learning how to be prepared can reduce your stress and help calm likely anxieties. This resource will help you think about how an infectious disease outbreak might affect your family— both physically and emotionally—and what you can do to help your family cope.
Just like grocery stores rotate the oldest items to the front before stocking with new, you should plan dinners using what’s hanging around in the back of your pantry and fridge. It’s a smart way to prevent food waste, and with all of these recipe ideas that all start with common pantry staples,
