Skagit Academy

October 5, 2021 - Week 5

Principal's Corner

Greetings Skagit Academy,


Welcome to Fall! We are getting much needed rain and some beautiful fall sunshine. I hope you are all enjoying the seasonal transition despite watching the wonderful summer retreat in the rearview mirror.


At Skagit Academy, we are adjusting to the fall and the return to school with excitement and reflection. There are so many positive stories of students getting to know each other, their teachers, and being back to on-site learning. We are grateful for the presence of our students and in-person learning.


We also know this is not quite back to normal for school. Not having families on campus is a change and we miss that aspect of Skagit Academy. Adhering to social distancing and related safety protocols is an adjustment for all of us but we understand how important it is.


Please reach out to teachers and staff with any questions or concerns you may have. We would love to hear from you.


Sincerely,

Kecia Fox

Principal
