Week of November 16th
November is such a wonderful time to stop and remind all those who keep us going how grateful we are for them. So, with that said, thank you for YOU, your amazing kids, our teachers, our community, and the amazing support staff. Together we are making our school something extra special.
I know some of you are pondering the decision for returning your child to in-person instruction for second semester. In the newsletter, I have put the information for a great resource for all of our families (GCPS Learning HUB). One common question I get from families trying to make this decision is "Has Suwanee Elementary had any positive COVID cases?". We have had no positive student cases at Suwanee ES and one employee positive case. You can continually find this information on the GCPS website. Our staff and students are doing a wonderful job at continually cleaning, washing hands, sanitizing, and staying home when sick. Our students are currently learning 55% in-person and 45% digitally.
As your child's principal, I will continue to support our students and families with whatever decision they make for next semester with all my energy and heart. Our teachers are heroes, and they continue to amaze me everyday. To best support all of our students, the decision you make for your child's instructional setting for second semester will have to be for the entire semester. We will not be able to accommodate switches to in-person instruction from digital once the new semester begins. I do appreciate your understanding and support. This will help us prepare and support all of our students.
