Head of School Update, February 14, 2020

Dear Parents, Students, Faculty and Friends,

We conclude our second week of virtual learning, and I continue to be immensely proud of our faculty, students, and parents. It’s clear that the expectations and professional tone set in the first weeks by the faculty and Principals has been supported and adopted by the parents and students. I know the last few weeks of learning have not been without challenges and hard work, but it does reinforce our shared commitment to students.

Our second week did see a shift into smoother learning routines. Thank you.

We recognize that while the second week gave us a better sense of routines, we are still seeking to improve our shared understand of how to best support students within the virtual learning environment. I am proud of our Principals for seeking your continued input along the way with the surveys that went out today. Please take a moment to share your thoughts about the second week.

In regards to school policies and updates regarding the closure and health situation, I am choosing to direct parents to the SCIS Parent FAQ Page which contains all of our communications from Director of Schools Dan Eschtuth along with other useful information.

Our closure has also brought challenges to our lives beyond the academic. I want to encourage parents to explore the FAQ page for the newly added social/emotional resources from our counseling department to help students and families during this time.

I know that we will greatly value our time together once we return, and I look forward to that day.

I wish each of you health and safety during this time.

Happy Valentines Day! (It’s not too late.)

Derek Luebbe
