Happy 2021! We are extremely excited to have students back in our buildings after nearly two months of distance learning. It has been a long road for all of us since the pandemic hit in March, 2020; however, the resiliency and commitment of our entire school community is nothing short of amazing. The teamwork and support has been inspirational, which serves as a great reminder about how fortunate we are to live in a community that truly values the education of our students.
The new year brings with it a renewed sense of hope as we continue looking forward to better days. Not only are we proud about returning to our hybrid schedule, we are also observing meaningful and measurable steps being taken that will allow us to return to “better than normal”.
This week the Medical Center began distributing vaccines to educators in our community and everyone has demonstrated patience and understanding as this process was expedited in a short time frame. Our staff members deserve tremendous credit for leading by example as they do their part to protect our community. These latest steps provide us with confidence that we will be able to expedite the return to a more regular schedule. While we cannot forecast the future, we remain optimistic that our collective efforts are keeping us on a path that will enable us to increase the capacity of students within our schools. As a reminder, you can do your part by:
Wearing your mask
Sanitizing your hands
Monitoring your symptoms
Staying home if you are sick
Thank you for your continued support and on behalf of the Warren County Public Schools Board of Education, we wish you all a healthy and happy 2021!
