We are extremely excited to merge our blue and white groups, as well as welcome students who are just starting in-person learning this year. It was great to see the classrooms fuller, hear the excitement from the students and begin the next step in recovering from a pandemic. Of course everything isn’t totally normal, as we continue to follow the guidelines set by the CDC and health department. These include social distancing, frequent hand washing and wearing masks. Still, several teachers made the comment today that it felt more like school than it has in a year. We will continue to work hard to provide instruction through the blended learning model, as we still have students completely virtual. It was a great day to be a Redskin and we look fo rward to a great finish to the school year with a lot of students in the building.
