Whether you are joining us for in person instruction or through our virtual learning platforms, welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. Over the past several months our district has worked hard to prepare for this milestone, and we are excited to be on this journey together.
Our classrooms have been outfitted with proper safety tools and desks have been set up in accordance with physical distancing in mind. PPE and other health related materials are located in all of our school buildings, including a three months’ supply of disposable masks, transparent cubbies for student desks, hand sanitizers, thermal scanners, etc. Additionally, our maintenance staff continues to safely sanitize our school buildings nightly and adhere to the comprehensive cleaning process we have established.
We know that this will take some getting used to for our families, staff and students but please be assured we are committed to supporting you all throughout the process. The truth is - all of this is new - to all of us. We appreciate your patience as we work out any issues that are not to the satisfaction for our families. We are here to make sure your child is safe, well taken care of, and engaged in a rigorous and exciting curriculum.
We are also hoping that you will all help us keep everyone safe by keeping your child home if they are ill, making sure that they wash and sanitize their hands regularly, and encouraging social distancing and mask wearing. Only with the community's commitment to keeping us all well, will we be able to stay open to educate our children throughout the full year.
In closing, I want to deeply thank all in the Connetquot community for your support over the past several months as we prepared for a school year that would be unlike any other before.
