March 16, 2020~We will not hold the gala this Saturday due to the restrictions from the CDC of not having gatherings of 50 people or more. Our top priority is the safety of everyone. We will need to reevaluate when things settle down if it will be possible to do it at a later date or just save what we can for next year. W so appreciate all the hard work that has gone into it so far.
Here is where we need your help….. We need to let people know that it is cancelled. The announcement is on the school Facebook page for everyone to share. If you could let the people that got tickets through you know as well, that would be very helpful to me. Please let Mary know who you are contacting so she can cross them off the list. At this point we cannot say if it will be rescheduled or when. Even though the tickets do say non-refundable we are willing to refund them due to the uncertain times ahead.
We will try to answer any questions you may have. We are putting a plan in place for continuing teaching the students during this time. Each of the teachers will handle how this is done in their classrooms. They will keep you posted of their plans. Please make sure that your child does the work assigned to keep their grades up. We have no idea how long this will be so we need to be on top of it right away. You will need to give us a little adjustment time to see what works best for all. We may have the students check in with their teacher daily via email for them to take attendance. This is something the public school is doing and we feel we may need to track this in order to count these days as actual school days for time we are off so days won’t need to be added later.
Please be patient with us through all of this. We need to keep the safety of our students and staff in mind.
