I know this wasn’t an easy week for our school district, as the troubling events in the Middle East continue to unfold. Any time we support our students and families through challenging times, I am mindful that our staff are also affected and we often have to manage our own emotions as we work to support others. I am so appreciative of the good work you did this week to engage with our students and provide some sense of normalcy and safety. Leading within this context is equally complex and I have felt challenged to find the appropriate tone in speaking and writing about these events. I appreciate your notes of encouragement as well as your feedback on how I can improve. At the end of the day, we are all in this together and I am grateful to work with such committed colleagues.
Thanks for everything you do to support our students and enjoy the weekend.
