Principal's Message

Good Afternoon Doby's Bridge Families,


I hope this message finds you healthy and well! Please know our staff and administration team think you are doing a wonderful job in helping to support eLearning and our efforts in continuing to keep kids learning. Please know that our intention is to provide resources to help students to continue with their learning. We understand that it may not be possible for students to be able to complete all assignments and that's okay! Our intent is for our students to make a good faith effort in completing what they can with the resources that are available to them.


I said this last week, but feel I should share again, the near future is unpredictable as no one knows what the upcoming days will bring during this national health crisis. We appreciate the amazing kindness and commitment that has been shown to our school. Please continue to be patient and understanding with our school teachers and staff as we continue to partner with you in educating our students. We are here for you and ready to help in any way we possibly can!


As always, thank you for your continued support of our school!


Building the Bridge Together,

Amanda Kubbs

Principal
