Principal's Updates - 1/15/21
"The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
As we enter this long weekend we need to remember why we are off on Monday. We are celebrating the life of one of America's most notable social activist who led the civil rights movement in the United States from the mid-1950s until his death by assassination in 1968. He promoted nonviolent tactics, such as the massive March on Washington (1963), to achieve civil rights. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. Students in every grade studied his life and were inspired by his peaceful approach to resolutions. There were books read, projects made, and discussion held. The quote I posted above made me reflect on all of the great work our teachers and staff are doing in collaboration with you. We are humbled and honored to be on this journey with you and your incredible children.
I want to remind you of the COVID testing protocol sent by our nurse, Mrs. Campbell. She is doing a remarkable job keeping track of all contact tracing and helping me to maintain a safe learning environment. In case you missed it here it is again:
Hello Families: There seems to be some confusion with family/household members being tested for Covid-19 and children that live in the household being sent to school before family/household member get their results. If someone in your household has symptoms or has been exposed PLEASE do not send your child to school. If you have any questions on dates of exposure, positive test dates and or when your child can return to school, please contact me at 617-698-2464. We are trying very hard to keep our school safe (and in-person learning) for everyone! Thank you for your help with this matter. Pam Campbell, RN School Nurse
God Bless you all and enjoy a wonderful long weekend with your incredible children.
Mrs. Julie Marotta
