Summer 2021

Letter from the Principal

Dear Smithfield Families,

The end of the year has arrived. We've had many challenges this year but just as many successes along the way. I thank you for your patience and flexibility as we navigated unchartered waters with hybrid learning, remote learning, and simply the unknown regarding Covid mandates. You (our students' caregivers) were forced to become teachers overnight. Your flexibility and dedication towards assisting our teachers with providing the highest level of learning possible is immeasurable. Our students showed time and time again their strong resilience and maintained their excitement toward school and learning. We could not have achieved this without you! I hope you find time to enjoy the summer and I can't wait to see everyone in the Fall.
