    Dear Parent,

         All of Walker Elementary faculty and staff are heartbroken and shocked at the news of the closure of school for the remainder of the year. We were prepared for an extension of the break but not a complete closure.

         Dr. Davie is receiving guidance from the State Superintendent today. He and Central Office personnel will meet together and the principals will receive further guidance on Monday. The Walker Elementary Leadership Team will meet and make decisions about how to equitably continue educating our children. We will let you know our plan as soon as possible.

         In the meantime, there are two-week packets for reading and math for all grade levels in front of the school. They will be out all weekend. I will check to see if they need to be replenished on Monday. Remember, if you have resources at home and are “good” with what you are doing – you do not need to get a packet. If you have internet service, please go to www.tcss.net and look on the left-hand side under Coronovirus 2019/COVID-19 Information for additional resources and information. Also, from there you can visit our webpage. Click on Schools in the upper right-hand side. Scroll down to Walker and click. Look under Parents and Students then click on Spring Resources.

         Also, beginning today, TCSS is offering a Help Line. This is to answer any questions about anything regarding school operations, social services and more. The number is 205-342- 2920. It is in operation from 8:30 – 11:00 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

         Please reassure your child that we will figure this out together! We are continuing to have school – it will just look a little different. The teachers will have videos and will hopefully be interactive as much as possible. Please reassure them that they will see their teacher again – it will just be over a screen – not face-to-face. We have many teachers who are tech savvy and will figure out a way to make it work. Who knows? We may even figure out a way to have a class get-togetherJ That is one of my top priorities. We need each other! We will find a way!

         Please give your child a huge hug from me and tell them it is going to be just fine. Enjoy this weekend of beautiful weather! Remember, you are not alone. This is temporary. Count your many blessings, name them one by one and soon your troubles will be gone (those of you who know the song can continue to sing itJ). We are going to get through this. We can do all things and we are more than conquerors.

    Much love,

    Marsha Johnson
