Governance Council Update: Fri, October 20:

Dear Summerfield Community,


We hope this letter finds you as well as possible given these difficult circumstances. Though we have not been in school for two weeks, we have felt the strength and depth of the community as teachers and parents have reached out to every family and worked in so many ways to support each other and the school in these challenging times. 

We are proud to be part of a community so full of strength, caring and compassion, and we are very much looking forward to reopening on Monday, October 23. All parents are warmly invited to join us Monday from 8:30-8:40 am on the high school lawn where we will join together for a brief whole-community assembly.

During the past week, in consultation with the Health Department, we have established a cleaning protocol for the campus and have been cleaning the grounds of the school. The classrooms will be thoroughly cleaned by Monday. To address the ongoing issue of variable air quality, we will be rotating air purifiers throughout the classrooms, and checking air quality reports daily to determine whether recesses and movement classes are held indoors or out.

Our faculty and staff are meeting for an in-service this Saturday where we will ready ourselves to return to the classroom and prepare to observe and respond to any special needs the children might have at this time. We recognize that there may also be an increased need for support and counseling for those impacted by the fires. Our counselors will be available for conversation and help with referrals, if needed. Magellan Health has also opened a free 24 hour counseling hotline for anyone who has been affected by the fires: anyone may call them at 1-800-327-7451.

More updates will follow on changes to the school calendar, including Sprite’s Night, in the next few days.

Sincerely,
Governance Council
