From The Desk of Annette Doyle....

Dear Families,

Just when you thought all the COVID case letters I’ve sent this week have been upsetting, I have other disappointing news to share. Our dearest, smile-for-everyone, ultra-competent and super caring Julie Willams has accepted the Executive Assistant to the Superintendent position at SPS Central Office. While this is a professional promotion and a great opportunity for Julie, it is a crushing loss to Peter Noyes School.

The good news is that this does not start immediately. Julie will stay with us for the next few weeks while we post, interview, and hire for her position.

Julie has been our administrative assistant for 11 years. She loves working here and adores the children, the staff, and all our families. For this reason, she respectfully requests that we not chat with her about this big move, as this will undoubtedly be an emotional goodbye. A kind note is deeply appreciated. Crying and hugging and trying to convince her she’s crazy to leave us is less so. Trust us, we’ve tried.

Lastly, and unrelated to Julie, it has been a stressful week with more COVID cases than we’ve ever had in such a short time. Please be extra diligent about monitoring your children for symptoms, keeping them home if they are sick, and staying committed to safety protocols. It is essential that any children who have a household member testing positive MUST quarantine. This does not mean just staying home from school. It means staying home for every single thing -- no sports, no playdates, no religious services, no scouting, no trick-or-treating, nada. We are relying on each other and all of us must work together to keep everyone safe. Thank you for your partnership on this.
