Welcome you to the 2020-21 school year!
Things have certainly changed considerably since March 12th of this year. At that time, I assumed that we would have a two week hiatus, and that we would return to a “normal” school routine. Boy, was I ever wrong. We spent the rest of March, all of April, May and part of June trying to adjust to the new “normal”. Honestly, we recognize that there were bumps along that road, and we learned so much from that time period. As we approach the beginning of the new school year, our “normal” has changed considerably. Please know that we took what we learned from our virtual experience last year, and with the help and support of our central office leaders, we took what we learned and we applied it to our preparation for this school year. Certainly, this is not what I had planned for the last year before I retire!
We are working on protocols and guidelines for our return to face to face instruction, and monitoring whenever that may be. We are putting in place safety protocols to help protect our students and our staff. Nurse Stacy is hard at work creating a safe environment in the clinic and setting up procedures to ensure our student and staff safety. You can learn more about Project Restart by clicking HERE.
This year, all of our teachers will be utilizing the Canvas learning platform. Teachers are in the process of reaching out to students and parents, via phone, email and/or Canvas, to check on students needs, explain processes and touch base prior to the start of the school year. By the end of the day on September 2, 2020, all of our teachers should have welcome back videos, class syllabi and class expectations posted on their Canvas pages. We are doing everything we can to make this school year as “normal” as possible for our Timberwolves.
As always, if there is anything that we can do to assist you, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are looking forward to an awesome, if different, school year.
Dr. Ellena, Principal
