To Parents and Guardians concerning COVID-19:
We understand everyone's concern regarding the COVID-19 Virus and the recommendations to practice social distancing. Our hope is to keep our school open as usual. The governor is leaving it up to each school district to make that decision. As with our policy, if the Niagara Wheatfield School District closes, we will as well. Parents will be notified as soon as possible. We know for many this will not be an easy task to find daily childcare. We suggest you start now preparing for this just in case. We are sensitive to this issue, that is why districts are not acting quickly to close.
Our staff has begun working on assignments that can be given to students should the need arise for them to remain at home for an extended amount of time. Each teacher has been asked to create a form of communication with their families. Many have already been using this tool whether it be the Remind App, emails, or texting.
Things that have been done so far:
-Cancelled the Kindergarten and 1st Grade Field Trip to Aquarium that was scheduled for March 18th.
-Cancelled the 4th Annual Craft Fair and Basket Auction that was scheduled for March 21st.
-Alerted the 7th & 8th Grade parents that a decision about the May NYC trip will be made soon.
What else can we do? Please pray...
We are entering a time where history is being made that is very unsettling. We are experiencing a surreal situation that is unlike anything we've ever been through. Listening the news reports along with the rumors that abound, fear and anxiety can grab hold quickly. We can't deny or ignore the evil in our world that causes these emotions that we know we shouldn't have. Satan wants us to live our lives in fear. Even those strong in faith can experience temptation to fear and worry.
1 Corinthians 10:12-13
If you think you are standing strong, be careful not to fall. The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
We will keep you posted...
