Dear Parents and School Community Members,
Though the first week did not go as planned, at this point in the pandemic, we are used to the need for flexibility in our lives. On a more positive note, let me say, it was absolutely wonderful to have our students back in class on Wednesday. The schools were brimming with their energy and excitement. And so despite the challenges encountered on the first day and the disruptions caused by the remnants of Ida, we are very much looking forward to welcoming back our students next week. As we put those challenges behind us and focus on moving forward, I want you to know we have taken steps to ensure a smooth restart to the school year on September 8.
Please remember to screen your children before sending them to school and keep them home, of course, if they are sick. With the holiday weekend upon us, I have to remind you that we must enforce the quarantine period for unvaccinated individuals pursuant to the CDC’s travel recommendations. Please contact your child’s school if you have questions.
My hope is that everyone is safe and well after the storm and not in need of assistance, but I am sharing community resource information that we received from the county, in case anyone needs help.
Thank you for your patience this first week and for your ongoing support. You have our best wishes for the long weekend.
