Virtual Back To School Night
The traditional Back to School Night has always been a great opportunity for our teachers to meet our students’ parents/caregivers. In light of the Covid restrictions, we have come up with an alternative.
Beginning on Tuesday, October 13th, you will receive an email from each of your child’s teachers inviting you to watch a prepared video that you may access at your convenience. The video will include an introduction to the teacher and the course, class expectations and policies, as well as the best means to communicate with the teacher.
We are disappointed that we are unable to meet with you in person, but adjustments seem to be part of our everyday lives. The one advantage to this new format is the video from each of your child’s teachers will be available for the week of the 13th for you to view at your convenience. For some, this is a better alternative than trying to race from work to school and follow your child’s schedule. We hope this provides you some insight into your child’s courses, our teachers expectations, and how we can partner together to make this a successful year for your children. We are looking forward to a new take on Back to School Night and wish you all the best in the year ahead.
On a personal note, thank you to all who have expressed your gratitude to our teachers for the unbelievable job they have done in making this year possible. The expressions of thanks are a great morale booster in a time of great changes in how education is delivered.
