will move to distance learning for all students on Thursday, September 16
and Friday, September 17.
Students will not report
to the school on these days. Instead, your child(ren)’s

Friday. We count on students using their laptops for online
learning. Please do not worry if you can’t connect. We understand that
this is short notice.
note that distance learning will be for two days only, at this time. All
students should plan to return to school on Monday, September 20, except for those whom Public

natural to want to know if your child may have been exposed to the virus but to
protect the privacy of students and school personnel, other details, including
names, will not be released.

react to worrying and stressful events. Parents are encouraged to talk to their
children about any anxieties and remind them to treat one another with kindness
and respect, in person and on social media.
