We would like to take a brief pause from our daily information-packed updates. Today, we encourage you to join us in taking a moment to slow down, breathe, and focus. We understand the uncertainty and fear that surrounds this situation, however, our hope is that we have been able to provide some stability and support to each of you throughout this trying time. We miss our students and our colleagues dearly, but, right now, we know that keeping schools closed is what is necessary to keep our community safe.
Our world is different today than it was just a few weeks ago and we are being challenged in ways that we couldn't have imagined. However, we have come a long way in a very short amount of time and this would not have been possible without the support, collaboration, and trust from our school district community. We take great pride and responsibility in being a critical community link and we are proud to serve our students, even when they are not within our schools. Bottom line: We are incredibly grateful to be a part of this team.
As the weekend is upon us, please find opportunities to enjoy quality time with those in your home or virtually with those outside your home. While it is critically important to stay informed, try to strike a balance and allow yourself a time-out from the COVID-19 conversation. Find a refreshing distraction for both yourselves and your children.
We are in this together. Continue to practice social distancing and healthy habits, and, most importantly, stay home if you can. We will continue to provide you with updates for as long as necessary, and we look forward to the day when we can safely welcome our students and staff back into our schools. We will get through this as a community. #ICCSDtogether
