Greetings CA Families,
I hope this short note finds you healthy and well. As we navigate these uncertain times, know that we will Rise Up together. Uncertainty can be scary. Please take time every day to appreciate the gifts all around you and know that this too shall pass. We are working extraordinarily hard to provide support through all sorts of platforms (see teacher webpages) and resource guidance. Please refer to the district webpage to learn more about COVID-19, continuous learning and social and emotional support resources. Let's do our part in ending this pandemic by adhering to the stay at home regulations set forth by our government officials and frequently washing our hands to prevent the spreading of the virus.
To the Class of 2020, I know that you are disappointed that your school year has taken this unexpected turn. However, we have consistently stated that you are a special group of young adults full of resiliency, leadership and kindness. Now is the time to prove it once again. Instead of focusing on what you may be missing, begin to consider ways that you can create memories even in our current state. Stay positive! Be creative and practice some of life's precious skills: stillness and waiting. We are Phoenix! It's in our blood... will will rise again.
Missing everyone very much,
Dr. Jana Haywood
