Message From Our Superintendent: 3/24/20

This is given by a teacher to a parent who reached out for some advice and comfort on how to help her child.  

"Don’t worry about them regressing in school. Every single kid is in the same boat and they will be ok.  When we are back in the classroom, we will all course correct to meet them where they are. Teachers are experts at this!  Don’t pick fights with your kids because they are struggling to do their homework. Don’t scream at them for not following a perfect schedule.  Don’t mandate learning, encourage it. If I can leave you with one thing, it’s this: at the end of all this, your kids’ mental health will be more important than their academic skills.  And how they felt during this time will stay with them long after the memory of what they did during these weeks at home is long gone. So keep that in mind, every single day."

We know this is a tough time for parents, and encourage you to continue to communicate and cooperate with your student's teachers. We are also communicating with teachers to be accommodating to students as we all adjust to this new online learning environment.  

Thank you for all you do!  Steven Norton, Superintendent
