Letter from Principal Haire:
Hello parents -
Hope this letter finds you in good health and good spirits. I know the good Lord will guide us through these trying times and we will come out stronger when it is over. Your children are missed!
We met as a staff Wednesday morning to determine plans and procedures if the closings extend past March 27. Teachers have been instructed to put together lessons for approximately two weeks at this point. These will be distributed digitally and/or available next week. Final details are in the works and you will be notified via FastDirect or School Messenger with the information you need for pick up.
Please know that the staff of St. Mary's School is here to meet your needs as best we can over this extended closing. We will be flexible and understanding of each family’s situation. Communication will be key in making this work. We will be on call if and when our distance learning plans are deployed.
Finally, all of us have an obligation to work on this together for the benefit of each child's learning. We will provide the lessons, each child will complete the lessons to the best of their abilities, and parents will hold their children accountable.
With that said, I want to share the following that was posted on social media and is a great reminder:
“With schools shut down, please don’t feel like you have to immediately start googling curriculums, learning resources and school work. This is going to be a worrying time for everyone and our children will be able to feel it. Trying to force your children to “learn” rarely works and arguing and fighting them to do so is likely to make an already stressful situation much worse. Read to them. Sing and dance with them. Play games with them. They will learn that when something bad happened, their parents played with them, distracted them and loved them. They will remember this as a fun time, rather than a scary one."
