Happy Labor Day Weekend!

Dear Families,

This Dawson newsletter is going to be small this week. I hope everyone has a wonderful and restful weekend with family and friends. The weather looks glorious! Next week I will have several Dawson videos for you as parents and for students. I will be camping with my husband in the remote woods of Vermont so I will get to any emails on Monday night as I need to unplug and reset myself.

The staff has worked hard this week with many technology professional development opportunities. I am so proud of their commitment to providing your students with the best remote learning opportunities. We are #DawsonStrong.

The official class list will be available on Monday, September 7, 2020. The teachers will send out a letter to families in regards to schedules by Wednesday, September 9, 2020. The teachers will also reach out to either an in-person meet and greet or a virtual meet and greet. At this time some staff members need to do a virtual meet and greet due to personal reasons so I ask for your patience and flexibility on this matter.

If you have any questions or concerns please reach out to me at melissa_wallace@wrsd.net,

Again enjoy this weekend!


Melissa Wallace
