News from New Haven
I've told our staff this will be the year of a million "1st days of school", but I"m hoping that the transitions get smoother as we go. I can tell you that just the arrival and dismissal process has already become so much more smooth. We will continue to gain more instructional time back as we get our processes in place.
I have, and will continue to, send home updates to keep you informed. There are a couple of repeats for those that missed them last time. As guidelines change and restriction protocols lift we will hopefully be able to add back in some of our activities, etc. I add those to our newsletters, as well as, update using Bloomz.
