The Stingray Scoop!
PDES Weekly Newsletter 3/14/22
Dear Peace Dale families,
Two years ago, this very weekend, Covid invaded our worlds and our schools shut down. The impact on teaching and learning has been challenging, to say the least. This has been certainly a very difficult time for all involved in education. Last week, was our first full week of optional masking in our schools. Seeing lots of smiling faces walking the halls at PDES brought a great energy to our campus. On Friday, at RIDOH's meeting, we learned that school K-12 positive cases were lower than they were last year at this time, for the first time this year! We know that our schools are still facing some uncertainty but we are hopeful that coming together and supporting each other will help us get through any other changes we will face as a learning community. Thank you, for your part in creating a kind, caring and supportive culture for learning for our students.
Last Friday you received a revised message from central office communicating that tomorrow- 3/14, is parent teacher conferences and an asynchronous day for students. Apologies for the miscommunication and confusion regarding this school day. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
Finally, don't forget, we SPRING ahead this weekend! Set your clocks one hour ahead!
With gratitude and respect always,
