I want to write this communique to welcome back our students, teachers and staff. The 2020-21 school year was challenging to say the least. The 2021-22 school year will undoubtedly present its own share of challenges.
I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of our bright students on completing their high school experience. In fact, I want to congratulate all of our students who are moving up this year.
I want to preface this letter by stating that I have somewhat regained a smidgen of hope in the US justice system. Yesterday was a bittersweet day. Sweet because we finally witnessed justice being served upon a rogue cop who willfully took the life of an innocent in the most terrible way possible.
I am writing this letter to address an obvious elephant in the room. So, with that being said let’s get down to it.
I am writing this letter today to caution you about taking the new coronavirus seriously. Please don’t forget to mask up, wash your hands, sanitize and clean work areas. Practice social distancing and get tested.
I want to preface this letter by saying, I didn’t want to do this. I mean, write this letter. I wanted to believe that the kinks would somehow work themselves out. I can’t seem to shake the disappointment that is gripping me.
First and foremost, I want to once again take this opportunity to congratulate each of you, the graduating class of 2020. This was undoubtedly one of the most challenging school year we have ever faced.
