We are in this TOGETHER!
Parenting + Remote Learning 2020-21
Principal DiNatale's Message
The reopening of schools for hybrid learning continues to be re-evaluated by the district officials. Until that time the schools will continue to offer a remote only program. Conversations are being held throughout the district regarding reopening and how this might look when we start bring our children back to the buildings.
This is a long, complicated process and something to not take lightly. Many components have to be taken into consideration before moving forward. We had our first "Parent Town Hall" meeting last evening to share information with our Makowski Families. Your voices, questions and concerns are also being taken into consideration as well. Our decision will be made based on what is best for our Makowski students at this time.
In the meantime, we continue working virtually. Our teachers and staff continue to be committed in providing students and families a comprehensive International educational program for our students.
We are in this together! We are here to support you!
Do not hesitate to reach out to the school or the individual classroom teacher.
