Coronavirus Update - March 24th


On-Campus It was bittersweet to come to campus today.  When I had left yesterday, there was the chance that we would be under a stay at home order and I would not be able to come to campus.  With the announcement that we still can move about during the day, I was excited to come to school. As I walked on to campus, I marveled at how beautiful it is. I was then struck by the silence. Normally at this time of the morning, the fields and playgrounds would be alive with our students playing, running, and shouting. I truly miss our students. We will get through all of this in time.  We will have students back on campus and that will truly be a great day. Thoughts for Online Learning My hope is that we can all settle into our new routines for the next couple of weeks.  Routines are very important for children. To the maximum extent possible, I would encourage families to develop routines for their children, building in time for online learning, play, downtime, and exercise.  By building a schedule and keeping to it as much as possible, you can help create a sense of normalcy for your children.  I realize this may be challenging for some families depending upon your living circumstances and the parents’ work schedules.  Check out this article for specific advice. The teachers and administrators had a busy day of meetings and planning as they prepare to launch our online learning program tomorrow. Wednesday will be an orientation day with online assignments starting on Thursday. As always, I am available for any questions or concerns you may have. Feel to reach out to me at alank@faculty.isd.sn. Sincerely, Dr. Alan Knobloch Director, ISD
