Principal's Message

Hello, Resources, and Next Steps!

​Dear Families,
I hope you are taking care of yourselves and your families! I understand uncertainty about the future of schooling, the plethora of information and all the unknowns can be overwhelming and add a layer of additional stress. Whether they express it or not, many of our children are feeling the same. Included with this email are a number of resources that may help you navigate conversations with your children and offer a variety of strategies to manage the anxiety you and/or your children may experience. There is lots of overlap there, so use only what might be helpful.
Our staff has been active this week assessing student work in progress, documenting and preparing for reporting student progress to date, including updating English Language Learning proficiency levels and Individual Program Plans. This way, we will be prepared when we are directed as to next steps in terms of on-line learning, assessment and reporting expectations. Student work will be returned to you in the future.
Our board is committed to providing supports to families. You will have received some recommendations from the system as well as communication from your child’s teacher. It is important that you remember that Spring Break is a time for rest, relaxation and family time, which is also vital. I loved hearing from many of you over the past few days, at pick up time, how you are utilizing board games, cards, art, cooking and baking, and outside activity as opportunities for learning and enjoying your time with one another. More information regarding next steps to support you at home will come after the break.
With support from Mr. Tosczak, our staff has put together a video for families, a way we can stay connected and know we are thinking of you! Please take good care of self, others and our community and we will be in touch after the break. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zizcv951G-o
With warmest wishes for a happy break,
Carrie
