Dedicated to excellence in education
From the Superintendent's Desk
As we near the end of the first month of school, I want to once again thank the administration, teachers, staff and families of the Roy-Hart community for their patience, flexibility and support in our efforts to reopen our schools. Although we have yet to work out all of the issues and concerns, it has been a positive start to the new school year. As I observe the instruction taking place, children on our playgrounds and athletes on our fields, I realize how much I have missed our students and staff.
Part of our reopening plan is to regularly review our process and procedures. Over the next several weeks you will be invited to participate in an open house at one or more of our schools. The details have yet to be finalized as we are working through the various protocols under the Department of Health guidance on gatherings. I encourage you to reach out to your child’s teacher, school principal or myself and let us know how we are doing. What are you pleased with? What needs improvement? What can we do to assist you in supporting your child? We welcome your feedback.
I encourage you to consider a flu shot for yourself and your children, continue the use of masks, physical distancing and handwashing as much as possible and closely monitor your children as we enter the cold and flu season. When in doubt, please keep your children home and visit with your pediatrician.
As always, I hope that you will make an effort to reach out to me directly or follow me on Twitter @DrStopinski
