WOW! It is amazing to see how our students, teachers, and families are coming together for a successful day of virtual learning! We know that the current situation is something that you are not what you are used to, but you are doing great and we are very proud of you. I applaud our health workers, educators, students, and parents. Our teachers have been collaborating with each other via zoom and Google Hangouts to make preparations for the next several weeks. Our private lesson teachers are teaching their lessons via Skype and Zoom. While the challenges we face are vast, we will persevere as a school community and support all learners to reach their potential via our distance learning plan. Please reach out to me should you have any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Wishing everyone good health and peace without end.
