Elsanor Family Connection

April 2021

Elsanor Families....

Wow! This school year has certainly been one for the books! We started the year, anxious but excited. We 've cleaned and sanitized more than ever before and we learned to wear masks just about everywhere. But we didn't let that stop us from learning!

As we make our way to the end of the year, we have been allowed to take off those masks outside and we hope to be able to put away the masks for good.

However, we will end the year just as we started: continued sanitization every single day, social distancing when possible, using lots of hand sanitizer and washing our hands frequently. We will also continue to have a closed campus. This means that we will carry on with our traditional events that signal the end of another year, but we'll do them without visitors. We realize that this will make some of our families sad, but we will video as much as possible so we can share the fun and excitement with you. There will be Facebook Live events and lots of pictures. Please understand that our commitment to keeping students and employees as safe as possible is still in place.

We pray that the summer brings our country healing and that when school begins in the Fall, we can, once again, welcome parents and community members back on campus.

Thank you for your continued prayers, support and encouragement as we finish the year strong!
