From the Principal
Dear Springfield Families & Friends,
Let me first begin by saying how much we miss all of our students! We are concerned for their health and well-being, and yours too. We ask that you please take this pandemic seriously and help us all stay safe by following the basic protective measures (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html).
Next, we understand many of you are still working and have several children to help, financial concerns, health issues, etc. We are here to patiently support our students and you throughout this challenging time. Please do not stress over the school work being pushed out via remote/e-learning. Teachers are doing their best to provide engaging activities and assignments to keep our students' minds moving forward. However, you are the parents and they are with you, so you have control to adjust as needed for your child/children. Again, please contact your teacher via email (or call the school number and leave a message) if you need help or have any questions or concerns. We also ask for your patience and understanding as we travel this uncharted territory, too. Our staff are working long hours from home while dealing with their new, but temporary, normal.
Finally, I want to say, very humbly, thank you...
- To our students -- for stepping up to the challenge of this "new way" of learning, working through the unavoidable inconveniences and obstacles, and committing to their education throughout this difficult time.
- To our parents, guardians, and extended family members & friends -- for taking on the extra responsibility of helping their children engage in remote learning activities/assignments and partnering with us to provide instruction at home.
- To our teachers, staff, and specialists -- for demonstrating determination and dedication, creativity, concern, and compassion, all while developing e-learning lessons and navigating new technology platforms.
- And to our health professionals, truck drivers, grocery store employees, first responders and all other essential operations personnel -- for keeping America up and running and ensuring the continuity of its citizens' protection and care.
Life will get back to normal eventually, but hopefully, after this experience is over, our lives will include more appreciation for our many blessings and freedoms. Sending each of you good vibes, positive energy, and some much needed sunshine... stay well!
