New Year's Edition!
Happy New Year!
One thing I would like to share with you is my heartfelt thanks for all that our community has done for myself, our teachers and our school. The PTO put together gift cards and donations for our staff, which were greatly appreciated and I know that I personally had a gift, card or new drawing on my desk every time I came back into my office! The generosity of this community is overwhelming. As I relayed to staff before leaving for break, I finally feel like I have found my home and family here at DES. I couldn't be happier.
I hope you had an amazing holiday with your family if you celebrate at this time of year, and that you rang in the new year with hope in your hearts as well.
School Committee Updates and Future Happenings
Emergency Meeting, December 30th
Next Steps Meetings January 6th and January 13th
No changes will be made to our current models without a vote from the school committee on January 13th. If a recommendation is made and a motion voted upon, changes would not take immediate effect, but would be forthcoming as soon as possible.
I am excited for the prospect of more in person or synchronous instruction for our students. We will continue to work hard each day to keep our students and staff as safe as possible in our school.
