Principal's Message

We are getting Ready

​Hey everyone, I hope all of you are well and safe.  The staff and I sure miss our students.  I understand that most of us are feeling anxious in the current situation; but we are doing everything to keep you safe and well. As we work through this “new normal”, we are going to continue the work in supporting your learning.
I know that over the past few days, teachers have been reaching out to see how you and your family are doing.  They are also checking to see what you have at home to support your learning from home. Teachers are very excited to reach out to you and hear all about what you have been doing over the past few weeks. I know the teachers are also looking forward to seeing all of you through Google Meet.  Maybe you will also have an opportunity to meet your classmates.  Starting next week, teachers will be sending a weekly schedule of activities, assignments, office hours and times when students can meet as a class to continue the learning.
I do have to say that I am impressed by how the staff has responded to this crisis by collaborating and working together to get ourselves organized.  There has been a lot of new learning for everyone.
This situation is new for everyone and just like you, we are all trying to figure out how to support learning but in a different way. Be kind to everyone around you – you family, your teachers and yourself.  Working together, we will all come out on the other side better and stronger as a learning community.​
