We are in this together.

We are committed to keeping each other safe and

to keeping learning effective.

Being in the same place with students and colleagues while doing our

uniquely valuable work together is wonderful and hugely important in many, many ways.

But safety is paramount.

Even if school learning is 100% online, there is meaning, progress, and caring interaction between students and teachers. We are committed to making those things the best every day.
