Thinking of You
I hope this message finds you all well! As you have heard by now, our school will be closed for the remainder of the academic year. We are already missing our students so much! We hope that each of you is finding ways to make the most of the time that you are at home together.
Our teachers are working hard to prepare lessons for students. On-line learning will begin on April 6th. We will also provide paper-pencil assignments for students then. More information will be shared next week about how families can access these resources.
In preparation for learning at home, please be sure you check your email messages regularly. Teachers are establishing contact lists and want to be sure they have heard from families about best ways to communicate. Familiar resources such as Google Classroom and See Saw will be used as well as other online teaching tools.
It is very important to our teachers that they are able to provide high-quality instruction and to be available to you and your children when needed. We certainly hope to not overwhelm you and your families as you attempt to work, support learning for your children, and continue daily activities at home. We are open and flexible in our thinking and planning. We hope you will be too.
For now, please continue to be positive as we move forward during this challenging time for us all. We are in this together! Feel free to reach out to me and others at Gwin with questions and concerns.
I am thinking of all of you and your sweet children every day. Please give them warm greetings from Dr. White! I look forward to reaching out to them more in the days to come.
All the Best,
Dr. Kimberly White
Principal, Gwin Elementary
