Mr. Martin's weekly update

Hi Marshdale Families,

I believe you've all heard by now that we are going to continue our remote learning through the end of the school year. Although I'm pleased that the decision has been made and is now known, I can't help but feel an overwhelming surge of questions, concerns and overload of things to consider. Despite these feelings, I'm confident our students will continue to learn and our teachers will continue to be creative with ways to keep students engaged and connected. I ask that you continue to show grace and patience. I'm proud of what we've been able to create in such a short amount of time and optimistic about our continuous improvement. 

I hope you were able to provide some feedback in today's attendance form. If not, and you'd like to, please don't hesitate to respond to this email. All of the feedback is reviewed and we will use it at our next virtual staff meeting to tweak what needs to be tweaked. 

Remember, Monday will be a non-contact day, so no attendance necessary. We will be working on plans on how to get student materials to you (cleaning out their desk). It won't look like it did this past week, but stay tuned. If there is anything specific you need, please let me know and we'll make something work. 

Tell all your children "Hi" for us and we'll be in touch soon. Stay healthy!!

Zak Martin
