Welcome back! I hope that everyone had a restful summer spending time with those you love.
We are so very excited to welcome our students back into the halls of Haysboro School; their smiles, laughter, curiosity, and wonder were dearly missed during the latter part of the school year.
Going back to school in September often brings about excitement, happiness, and possibly, nerves, and anxiety. This September adds in layers of uncertainty as we begin a new school year amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. While this school year will be unlike any before, we remain unwavering in our focus on high-quality teaching and learning in environments that keep our students, staff and families as safe as possible. If your child(ren) are feeling a little anxious about their first day I invite you to share the story below with them. It is natural to feel a little nervous about the first day – even the Principal does!

As we adjust to school “in a new way" our emphasis will be on kindness; empathy; connection with one-another; having fun together; developing resilience in the face of uncertainty, academic learning and social-emotional wellness. Our strong partnership, with you our families, will guide us through this year together in grace, empathy and patience.
We look forward to connecting with students to welcome them back and help them adjust to the new changes.
