Dear School District 47 Parents/Guardians,
I would like to take this opportunity during Education Week to honour and acknowledge the tremendous efforts of our students, teachers, administrators, and support staff who have been able to keep the focus of student learning and well being during this unprecedented time. In the midst of a pandemic, we have been able to find innovative practices, unique learning experiences, and new modalities for communication. Our students, staff, families, and community have worked together diligently and compassionately to ensure our schools are healthy, safe, and rich in educational experiences. From outdoor classrooms to modifying district-wide experiences and mental health supports, we have adjusted to the many challenges and created inspiring and engaging opportunities for all of our learners.
