October Newsletter 2020
In our attempt to get school going and to create an atmosphere of semi-normalcy, I have been impressed and humbled by the response of our Board, administrators, educators, staff, and students. We have had to ask our adults and young people to do some things out of the ordinary, and they have willingly done it. Most everyone wanted to get back to school, and each was willing to do whatever was necessary to make it happen. We decided to come back on a full schedule of five days a week because the majority wanted it that way. We have a long way to go, but as of today, I am convinced we made the right decision to come back to our regular schedule. As the year progresses, we will continue to monitor our situation and make adjustments as needed, but we will stay focused on preserving classroom instruction time.
It is refreshing to go into our schools to get away from the everyday problems of our world. Even though everyone is wearing a mask, it still looks like school. Teachers are instructing and students are learning. Students are also socializing and participating in various activities. Seeing students back together doing what kids ought to be doing is such a nice escape from politics, protests and natural disasters. It makes wearing a mask seem a little less inconvenient when I get to see what is happening in our schools. It is worth it!
I express thanks to our educators for accepting more and more on their plate because they care about kids. I’m grateful for our support staff. They continue to go the extra mile to make this all work. I also appreciate our parents for trusting us to teach their kids either in person or at home during an unprecedented time. When I see the buses and cars delivering students to the front door of our schools each morning, I count that day as a victory. With our country facing so many challenges caused by nature and by man, I’m still forever thankful to be an American. We live in a spectacular country, we reside in a great state, and our community is remarkable. We are winning!
