Dear Families,

Schools across the country are working in solidarity this month to launch a shared set of lessons to pursue social and educational equity for Black students.  Black Lives Matter at School Week of Action began in 2019 to affirm Black identities by centering black voices, empowering students, and teaching Black experiences.  We can use these shared resources all year round to support our commitment to anti-racism.  I am sharing a resource, Guiding Principles of the Black Lives Matter Movementby Laleña Garcia, to help you talk with your children about the Black Lives Matter Movement.  For more information and resources, please visit the official BLM at school https://www.blacklivesmatteratschool.com/.

An update about in-person learning:  Fifteen students opted into blended learning beginning in March.  Eighteen indicated they would start in April.  We will need to open a second cohort in Dianne and Oli’s class to maintain social distancing.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

I hope that you take advantage of the half-day to get outside today and enjoy the snow.

Be safe,

Dyanthe
