D109 Online Updates - August 7th

Good Afternoon Bluejay and Spartan Families,


As we approach the final days of summer and continue to plan for a beginning like no other we have seen in the past we continue to be exceptionally committed to ensuring our middle school students feel welcomed and a part of our school family. This is one of our primary goals and as we develop plans to achieve this, we will share updates. Important dates and information regarding our 109 Online return and special events can be found below. Mark your calendars and be on the lookout for more details regarding these events in next week's newsletter.


We are looking forward to our collaboration in providing a safe and supportive environment as we enter into our new school year. Normal is such a simple word and it is our goal not only to continue to find our new normal but to use this time as a learning experience that will forever impact the learning environment at each middle school. Every week there are new types of learning experiences teachers are piloting and much of what is learned will continue to be used in the future. Our fall may not be “normal,” but our commitment is to provide learning that will not only continue but will thrive.


Have a great weekend,


Megan Russell, Caruso Principal

Caitlin Lucci, Caruso Associate Principal


Chris Cybulski, Shepard Principal

Marie Zlotnikov, Shepard Associate Principal
