Principal's Message - Update & Brief Feedback Survey
As we prepare to receive the updated guidelines from the Commissioner of Education, based on the closure update, we continue to enhance and our Remote Learning activities. The plans for next week were added to our site today. When the guidelines are released, we will work through the implementation phase and continue to keep you and the students updated.
We know that this has been a difficult time in so many ways for families. We are looking for your feedback regarding the current Remote Learning Plans. We have received some feedback from students and staff have take that into consideration as we have moved forward. District-wide, we are asking for some brief feedback from families, as well. Please take a moment to complete this short survey, at your convenience.
We know that families and students have many other logistical questions regarding the school closure, such as retrieving personal belongings, returning school materials, etc. We will be collaborating district-wide to plan for this, based on the evolution of the health and safety guidelines. As those plans develop, we will provide additional communication.
Finally, I sent a video message to students yesterday via their Gmail accounts. I am also attaching it below in case they haven't seen it.
Take care and stay healthy.
