Dear Clifford Community...
We begin spring break on Monday, April 6th, and while we may not be able to go on vacations or experience new places to eat around town this break, we do get to wind down from online learning and teaching and take a break. I've asked all teachers in grades TK-8 to unplug from Google classrooms and to take a step away from lesson planning in order to have time to rest and rejuvenate. I've also asked teachers not to send homework/projects for students to do over the break. I would like our students to step away from screen time and play in the yard, read books, color, try and cook a new recipe for the family, and finally... forget about school next week. I do miss our school and seeing all of the students and the families, but I know we will overcome this and we'll be together again soon.
Please enjoy your family time. Be safe and stay well.
