I am happy to report that those students that opted for in person instruction have filled our halls once again! Though we are not even close to capacity, we are glad to welcome almost 45% of our students back. Our teachers have done an outstanding job instructing our students virtually for nearly a year. Now they have the challenge of teaching “concurrent classrooms” in which some students attend class in person and others attend virtually.
Our administrators and support staff did an outstanding job of preparing our buildings for a safe return. I am appreciative of the entire team and thank them for all the work they have done and the flexibility they’ve exhibited. I also appreciate our parents and families who have been supportive and patient throughout this pandemic, which has been going on for close to a year. I am hopeful that we will be able to slowly return to some sense of normalcy as the vaccination process gets underway. I also pray that we will be back in full force by the Fall. In the meantime, we intend to offer a free summer school experiences for all students in grades K-12.
Thank you to the board of education members, our wonderful staff, students, and parents for your continued support. I am looking forward to seeing you all soon but until then, stay safe.
