From the Desk of Mrs. Adelman

This is an exciting time of the year as we welcome just over 500 Warwick students back to school! You have a commitment from me, and from all our staff, that we will do everything we can to make the initial online experience rigorous, fun, and engaging. In addition, we have a whole team of incredible staff members, including our counselor, psychologist, nurse, reading specialists, who will do all they can to support your children's academic, social, and emotional needs, whether they are in the building or learning from home. That being said, we would also ask for your patience with the inevitable technology hiccups we may experience especially during our opening days.


Obviously, this summer has been like no other. We continue to adjust to the COVID-19 restrictions that have been set, which has made school planning extremely challenging, as things seem to change very quickly, sometimes daily. Regardless of these challenges, we have been working hard to plan for the upcoming school year. These plans include new and unique scheduling and class placement needs, detailed building health and safety protocols, extensive training on virtual technologies, cleaning protocols, and general planning for various possibilities as the year progresses.


We are so appreciative for the trust, support, and understanding you have shared with us through the spring and summer. Please know that we are working around the clock to provide your children with the best educational experience possible as we prepare for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our main office at (267) 893-4050.


Please also reach out directly to me. I am happy to answer any and all questions!


Sincerely,

Mrs. Amy Adelman
