Principal Lunde's Weekly Update

Nov. 9, 2020

Every day I get the opportunity to chat with parents, visit with students, and talk with the UELF staff. I seek each of those moments as times to listen, collaborate, and connect. I trust each of you and I know that each of you want the best for the students of UELF. Each of those UELF stakeholders is hungry for our community to work together and sometimes in this process we have feelings of connection, loneliness, excitement, frustration, energy, exhaustion, and always this feeling of limbo or uncertainty. Presently CRPUSD is working with all of these stakeholders to develop the best plan for our return to school.

While Sonoma County continues to be in purple, our district can only plan for when we anticipate to return. As I hear updates, I will share these updates in this newsletter and in my Weekly Family Check-Ins. I need my teachers, support staff, families, and students to focus on the incredible learning that our students are doing right now. There is momentum so let's continue this great work.
