Dear Upper School Parents,
Now that we are three weeks into the school year, I want to take a moment and acknowledge the amazing collective effort to safely open school this fall. Our maintenance staff worked tirelessly to ensure our classrooms, hallways, and outdoor spaces were ready for new protocols and socially-distanced instruction. The staff worked all summer to refine our new guidelines and put into practice mandates at the state and local levels. Our faculty, after being asked to unexpectedly shift to eLearning mid-semester, was asked to teach both in-person and online simultaneously this fall, all while ensuring our safety protocols were being followed throughout the day. Our students are responding well to our new way of “doing school” and are working hard to come in each day ready to learn. While we are all thrilled to be together again, the new way of “doing school” requires new and different energy. It’s no wonder that the three-day weekend comes just at the right time.
Thank you for your continued partnership with the school.
Have a wonderful long weekend!
Upper School Director
