A MESSAGE FROM ADMINISTRATION (Saturday, March 28, 2020):
Our students will not return to the building this semester, but we want to ensure you that learning will not stop! During this upcoming week (March 30 – April 3), we ask that you provide resources for your child that will keep his/her brain stimulated. You can visit our website or the TCSS website for suggestions.
In the meantime, we will be working on a plan to ensure that learning continues and is fair for all students. Our goal is to focus on priority standards that will better prepare them for the next school year.
You should also hear from a teacher this week. Be expecting that phone call within the next few days. Our teachers are checking in to see how your child is doing, what resources you might need and if there is anything in the building that belongs to your child.
I will be meeting with Dr. Davie, other administrators and teachers this week to come up with a plan of learning as we move forward. Some of you have asked about technology. While I wish that we could provide technology to every student, we simply do not have those resources. We will make sure the plan is fair and equitable for every student.
We expect to have an official plan of learning for our students by Monday, April 6.
Please say hello to your child for me and tell them that I miss them. Give them a big air hug from me!
Stay safe and email me if you have any questions.
Here's what you can do for now:
