    Dear Families,

    As we enter this new year, I am choosing hope over fear and collaboration over isolation. We can and will get through this difficult phase. “What is done cannot be undone, but one can prevent it from happening again.”- Anne Frank As teachers, parents, leaders, friends, community members we as a collective have the power to use our voices and our actions to create safe spaces for those closest to us – if that’s all we can do right now, that’s enough.

    GO BEES!

    K-1 In Person Survey Updates

    I have fielded several emails/phone calls regarding questions about the survey you received earlier this week. I understand that you have been provided with minimal information in order to make your choice. Please know:

    • We will be taking a flexible approach, given that we are in a fluid, dynamic situation and want to ease your mind in knowing that the survey is meant as a district tool for broad planning. As we get closer to March, we will allow parents to make individual decisions about what is best for their child, you will not be locked into “in person” if you determine that you would prefer to revert to remote.
    • In addition, please know that the survey may have given you the understanding that March 1st is a firm date. As you are aware, there are several factors that will also impact this decision, including the COVID threshold that needs to be met (which the governor listed as 350 per 100,000), and other planning pieces at the district level (including SEA negotiations, etc.)
      Please know that I will be communicating regularly with families and staff as we receive more updates that will help you know what is coming next. Thanks for your patience.

    Virtual Field Trip

    Since we can't go on field trips this year, we thought it would be fun to go on a virtual field trip. More information will be sent this week with the details so you can plan accordingly.

    Update from Communication sub-committee

    We have set up a new email address for your to send you ideas, comments and questions: Based on feedback we have and will receive, we are developing a FAQ sheet for families that will be coming soon.
