We have some changes to staffing we would like to announce:
Julie Miller will be returning to school on Monday. We would like to thank Rebecca Reese for supporting us with our music program during Mrs. Miller’s absence. Mrs. Reese has been an asset during the past two months in engaging students in alternative music activities.
We would like to welcome Laura Devitt to our school as our new Assistant Principal. Mrs. Devitt brings her gifts of experiences with French Immersion as a parent and spouse as well as working with diversity, design thinking and inquiry approaches to learning. We want to welcome Mrs. Devitt to Tuscany School and look forward to having her share more about herself in the near future.
We have been receiving questions about Valentine’s Day. To make it absolutely Covid friendly teachers are designing ways for children to share their kind words and wishes internally. We will create displays of appreciation for each other within our school using materials already present. Our messages will be spread throughout the school but no paper valentines will be exchanged. Our messages will remain visible for a lengthy period of time for students to see each day. This will help them be surrounded by a caring community of peers throughout February into March. We ask that no paper valentines be sent from home during this February.
Just a reminder about physical distancing after school; please note that while some may be unmasked while picking up their children from outside, we need to remember to honor the 6’ distance when unmasked. This will help us all respect each other during our ongoing challenge with keeping numbers low. I appreciate your attention and thoughtfulness around this request.
Stay safe, stay warm and enjoy the sunshine.
Principal, Tuscany School
