Hi Everyone.


We really miss you and rather than writing a letter this week, we thought we would send you this message! We wanted to say hello from our homes to yours. We hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy. With the extended closure of schools, we are all doing the best that we can, which is exactly what everyone should be doing!


While the learning calendars and that work are important, what is really important is staying connected as a Dunning Community. While we can only connect virtually, the Dunning staff is working hard to find as many ways to reach out as possible to all of you so that everyone can stay connected in whatever way works for them. We realize that there is alot coming at you right now, and that being said, you should find what works best for your family.


We know that there may be families struggling and in need of food or other items. Please reach out to us. We are here to help find the resources that you may need. Navigating through all of the available resources can be confusing and challenging. Please know that we are here to help. You can either email your child’s teacher or us directly.


We are trying to keep the lines of communication open and available to all. We want to hear from you. You can email or use our Virtual Door Padlet. We also encourage you to share pictures on facebook or our google photo links that we include on the Notes from the Office. Most of all, just stay connected!


We want to leave you with something to put a smile on your face.


We miss you and hope to see you all soon.
