Principal Update 11-12-2020
What a blessing to have a week of beautiful fall weather in November. It has been great that almost every day the students have been able to get outside and get some fresh air.
All grades will continue to go outside as many days as possible so we ask that you remind your students to wear the proper clothing.
We appreciate your understanding in the adjustments we have made to the calendar this year.
We were already scheduled to have Friday, November 20th off
Calendar Change: NO SCHOOL: Monday, November 23 and Tuesday November 24
NO SCHOOL NOVEMBER 20 – NOVEMBER 27
As we look toward the next few weeks, we wanted to share with you the reasoning behind the calendar change for the week of Thanksgiving. We met with Pastor Jon and discussed how best to proceed. Since we have next Friday, November 20, off, we felt that it would be in the best interest of both students and staff to take Monday, November 23, and Tuesday, November 24, off with the hopes of limiting exposure for those two days. We see the toll that COVID is taking on school districts around us…many closing classrooms because of close contacts to positive COVID cases, others being forced to close in-person learning because there aren’t enough subs to staff classrooms. It has been our goal since the beginning of the year for students to be in school every day. And yes, while we are adding two days off, we are hopeful that this calendar change will help us to be better prepared to finish the semester with in-person learning.
We thank you for your cooperation and understanding. We know that this season isn’t easy for you either. Please know that we do not make these decisions lightly but put much thought and prayer into how best to use the time that God has given us. We are thankful that we have the opportunity to partner with you in the education of your child!
Daily assignments and classwork are being posted on the website. Students should check their email, online learning, and Seesaw accounts each day.
“The LORD is my strength and my shield;
in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.
