Week Three - Remote Learning
Greetings Wolfpack Students and Families,
Here we are in week three already, and while the governor’s decision to keep schools closed for the rest of the year provides us time to plan going forward, I have reflected this week on how we continue to live in an uncertain world with many unanswered questions.
During this time, our staff truly want to be supportive for students and families in whatever way we can, our Wolfpack community is so important to us and we know we are stronger and better together. At whatever level you are able, we are here to engage with you and be part of your network of support. Students - Your teachers look forward to ‘seeing’ you in class, via email, however we are able!
Below is a video of me reading one of my favorite children’s books: The Three Questions, based on a story by Leo Tolstoy, written and illustrated by Jon J. Muth. As I’ve been struggling through balancing all of the uncertainty and struggles in my own life through this pandemic, this story had some good reminders that I know I've needed at the end of some long days.
Thanks again and please take care.
Principal, West Valley High School
