Dedicated to excellence in education
From the Superintendent's Desk
Our shift to daylight savings will take place on November 1 and will provide light a little earlier in the morning. I encourage all families to remind your children to be safe on their travels to school. Whether walking or driving to school, extra precautions are in order not only due to the darkness, but due to the ever changing weather that will soon impact our commute.
With our increasing reliance on the use of technology, I recommend that all parents maintain close contact with your child on their use of the internet, social media and cell phones. There are many resources available to help you develop strategies on how to talk with your child that are age appropriate. When in doubt, please reach out to your building principal or school counselor for support.
Finally, please 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 your child’s pediatrician. Our school website has many tools to assist in navigating when or when not to send your child to school.
As always, I hope that you will make an effort to reach out to me directly or follow me on Twitter @DrStopinski
