|A Note From Headmaster
We live in an age where we want to see the data. We place great confidence in data as it seems to clear up confusion and can easily settle disputes. Minimally, data helps to confirm what we may have been wondering or hypothesizing. Here is some data regarding the continued dedication of our teachers (and administration and staff) who are committed to providing onsite instruction, serving our online students, and giving up their prep. periods to cover classes, so quarantined teachers can instruct from home. In the first four weeks of Semester II, here is the data:
Our teachers very much deserve these two off-campus asynchronous days where they can dedicate time and energy to lesson planning, grading, and rest. We are blessed to have such wonderful and caring individuals serving our children. Your continued support and encouragement are always welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for continuing to make our community one of love and goodwill.
Call or email the attendance line, and students will be marked COVID Quarantine Excused Absence as long as details are left in the message so the office can excuse the absence. Email email@example.com or call 623-889-0822 ext. 4.
