Seeing all of you, but most especially the children, at this week's Visiting Days was incredibly inspiring. When it became clear in late spring that the pandemic would not be ending anytime soon, we immediately set our hearts and minds on the ambitious goal of re-opening safely in person for our families. It has been a long summer with many twists and turns as we considered and adapted to all that would be required, but here we are, poised for the first day of school at last!
Your belief in our school, with its incredibly dedicated teachers and strong community, is deeply appreciated. While this year is different than any that has come before, the important things are unchanged. As always, your child will walk into their classroom and be enveloped in the CCPC culture of Resilience, Creativity, Exploration, Kindness, and Community.
As you know, we closely monitor area COVID infection data and will continue to do so. Currently, the city is holding steady with positivity rates consistently well below the 5% benchmark set by CDC. If this trend can be sustained over time, we will move to Phase 3 guidance.
Important Reminder: current DC health forms including up-to-date immunizations are a MUST to begin school on Monday.
Although this is not the time for sitting together side by side on the sofa in my office, I encourage you to pick up the phone and call me anytime. I always love talking about our very special children at CCPC!
With a full heart and in anticipation of a wonderful year of learning,
