Hello from the Principal - Checking in with our Park Families while we shelter in place

Dear Park Community, Yesterday, I asked Park teachers to write words about how they are feeling over a digital platform. Words such as: anxious, sad, overwhelmed, courageous, relieved, all appeared across our screens. The words I would like to add are: inspired, grateful, and amazed. In the last 48 hours, Park Staff have temporarily transformed Park into a digital and paper-based distance learning platform. Our teachers’ flexibility, problem solving, and ingenuity has been inspiring in these trying times; It has been an honor to work alongside our hard-working staff at Park. I’m proud of the work we’ve accomplished to support our kids during this global public health crisis.
