Dear William Reid School Families

​This year is unique and challenging with some old and some new protocols, like early entry, mask wearing, hand hygene, physical distancing,  and  cohorts.  This school year began full of uncertainty and change but we have managed to work together as a community to support our students.  Learning occurs every minute of every day in our building.  I want to assure all families these are not wasted years.  Our students, families and staff are resilient and caring and we are all working together alongside each other to ensure that learning is our central purpose.  I am very appreciative of our parent and community support our school has at this time. Maintaining a safe school relies on all of us doing our part.  We have a 15 minute staggered entry to avoid student line ups and vehicle traffic congestion.   I'm thankful for this keen and excited student body that shows up every day ready to learn with masks and water bottles in hand.  This enables us to focus on our main goal academic excellence and learning as unique as every student.  We are able to host scheduled volunteers and artists in residence this year.  Students will also be going on field trips providing the venue meets all CBE protocols.  Our teachers have established and are maintaining their Google Classrooms for all students.  Every week families will receive an email from me that contains weekly information.  The emails will also be posted on our Website.  Additionally we have a Twitter page that we fill with photos from inside and outside the school:  @Williamreid_cbe

Our Website is current and updated, please refer to it often.  Looking forward to a wonderful Fall and I look forward to seeing you all on the front steps of our school every morning.
