We know that distance learning can be a challenging component of everyday life, and adjusting to it pushes children and their families to limits often not experienced before. We want to reiterate that we support families finding their own stride and routine that works for them. Teachers are working thoughtfully to prepare work for students, and we support flexibility in accomplishing the daily work. All teachers want students to complete assignments, and submit them. Be advised, for lower school students, if work completion happens on a different time frame than you originally plan for, it is okay. The main goal is to complete work and share with your child's teacher.
Between mid-terms, class planning for next year, and AP exams, the upper school students and teachers are keeping a busy schedule. Read upper school updates here.
Please communicate openly and frequently with teachers about your child's progress and struggles so that if you need assistance, teachers and administrators can create a plan to support your family. We are all willing to offer any assistance necessary to try and improve this process for students, families, and teachers. Additionally, if your child is ill, or there are family members who are ill and your child cannot be present during scheduled class meetings, please send a message to email@example.com and contact your child's teacher directly.
Try to get outside and observe the signs of spring- they are everywhere! We miss everyone and hope you are well. Stay home and stay healthy!
