I hope you and your family are well. With our spring break complete we are ready to continue our virtual learning in partnership with all of you. Our goal continues to be here as a support for your family during this challenging time. While we are committed to students continuing to learn we also recognize the strain on families during this time. We want school to be engaging, structured, and a source of calm for your family. Please continue to communicate with us to ensure that we hit that mark.

Virtual classes will continue on Monday, March 30, 2020. Thank you to all of our students and families who submitted feedback following our first week of virtual learning. We have used that to refine our work. Any significant changes will be shared with you through our teachers and principals.

We feel that our connection with students and families is critical during this situation, perhaps more than the rigor of virtual learning.
