Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Today, we are sharing several pieces of important information regarding our return to school plan. Thank you for your patience! We have organized this week’s Shake e-newsletter into two sections to help you process information and action items. Please take time to review this information as a family.

All families are encouraged to participate in our virtual Town Hall meeting at 7pm on Wednesday, September 2. In this meeting, we will provide an overview of our Restart, Health and Safety, and Communication Plans; and give space to address questions and concerns from our community.

This year’s school theme comes from Psalm 121: “Our Help Comes from the LORD”. As we head into this school year, there continues to be uncertainty around what school, work, and family life will look like. May Psalm 121 be our “travelling” song in these times. Let us declare that our “help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth”. He is the One who keeps us. He protects us. He guards us. He does not sleep/slumber. His protection is day and night, in our coming and going, now and forever. He watches over us – body and soul. Amen – so be it.

As always, know that our doors (and phone lines and email inboxes) are open, and that we need your feedback as we establish new routines in our work together. We look forward to in-person experiences with you and your children in the coming weeks and months.

Shalom.

Mr. Shane Nelson
Principal
