Good afternoon, families.
It’s Thursday, May 21, and as many of you have heard by now, the governor announced yesterday we are moving into a modified Phase 2 of the state’s reopening plan. I know this is exciting news as these last several weeks have been challenging for many. As we begin to revisit some of our favorite places, we encourage you to remain vigilant about social distancing and washing your hands often for at least 20 seconds. While we are glad to see progress, we realize we must maintain these simple measures so that we can continue to see the number of positive cases lessen and for progress to continue forward.
On Monday, we launched WiFi on Wheels, a new initiative to continue meeting the needs of our families, students, and the community who may not have access to internet services. With this program, activity buses equipped with hotspots are traveling throughout our community to provide internet access to various locations. This program enhances the Park and Learn locations already established at our school and community sites. A schedule for WiFi on Wheels is located on our Facebook page and website. (WiFi on Wheels)
In closing, I wish for our families and staff a very happy Memorial Day weekend! Please stay safe as you begin visiting with friends and loved ones. Up until our current situation, I think many of us (myself included) took for granted the time with our loved ones. So, as you begin to reconnect, make your connections meaningful. Forgive and truly enjoy the time with one another.
As a final note, please remember even though the school building is closed, school remains in session. Remote learning continues through June 5. Should you have questions, please contact your school’s principal.
Aaron Woody, Ed.D.
