K8 October E-news

Hello everyone and Happy Autumn!

As we enter into our next month of distance learning, I am reminded how adaptable our students are. While full time distance learning is not ideal for everyone, our students are really working hard to make the best of a challenging situation. I know that this requires constant diligence on the part of our families in order to make sure our students are on time for their many Zoom lessons and completing their class work. Thank you for all that you do. Together, we will continue to work through the challenges and provide the best learning experience possible for our children.

In an abundance of caution, we chose to put our outdoor learning program on hold. We will continue to monitor the local situation, and will restart this program as soon as we feel that we can do so safely for our students, our teachers and our families. Prior to pausing this program, we were able to come together in person at Windy Hollow Farm and for Coastal Clean-up Month at Moat Creek. These two events were a great reminder of how inspiring it is to have our students together.  

Lastly, I want to remind everyone that communication is key to successfully navigating through distance learning. Please let us know as soon as you are able if your child is going to miss a scheduled Zoom session so that your child's teacher can help you to access asynchronous learning options. Also, because we are having regular communication with so many of you, we are not going to schedule school-wide parent conferences this year. If you would like to schedule a thirty minute one-on-one conference with your student's teacher, please let the teacher or the office know.

Take care everyone. Enjoy the change of seasons, and hope for rain!

-Todd, K8 Director
