Greetings Peabody family,

This is your school counselor Mr. Muhammad. I want to give everyone a round of applause during this unfortunate situation. Dr. Martin Luther King Junior made a quote which stated "The measure of a man is not where he stands in times of comfort and convenience, but where he stands in times of challenge and controversy. Even though the quote uses the word man, it is meant for man and woman alike.  I think of this quote when I think of the Peabody family. These are truly some times of challenge and controversy, but we are truly working together to get through this tough time the best way we can. Challenges are not always viewed as desirable experiences but it is through challenges that many new and different ways of thinking and being occur. The staff is challenged to continue to provide an education via the Internet. This in itself is a huge challenge that the principal and the staff have truly been working diligently to continue to provide an education to the students at Peabody Elementary school. We are currently creating instructional teams which will work together to plan and implement lessons via the Internet. Lunches will continue to be provided at the school. As we continue to develop our plan of action, we want to thank the Peabody family for their patience and cooperation. Feel free to email me with any questions, comments, or concerns. If I cannot answer your question, I will make sure I get it to a person who can. Thank you again, and stay safe.
