Dear staff:

I hope you all have an enjoyable and restful Spring Break. As you know, when we return, the remainder of the school year will fly by!

Please continue to care for yourselves, your students, and your colleagues. As spring flowers emerge, it’s lovely to see some sunshine and joy on people’s faces!

Thank you all for your continued flexibility - while we continue to recruit subs, coverage will remain a challenge. I know everyone is pitching in and helping out where needed.

Enjoy your break - you deserve it!

- Justin
