Dear Strawberry Families,
Yesterday, I was talking with a few family members about our "new normal" and distance learning ideas. One remarked that if anyplace can handle this, it's Sonoma County. In the past three years, we have weathered fire storms, lousy air quality, floods, and most recently, planned power outages. This county and community have learned how to handle emergencies and how to pull together to support each other.
But this is different. In the past, neighbors sheltered and supported each other. We gathered together and provided strength to each other. A Shelter-in-Place order changes that. But I believe that our sense of community and our ability to stand together is strong, we can weather this shift, the teachers, staff and I remain committed to supporting our community and our students.
As outlined in Dr. Field’s email sent on March 20th, will be working on building a robust distance learning program for our students. This will take time as we learn how to work together remotely. We appreciate all you are doing to adapt to the change in lifestyle we are all experiencing. We ask for your partnership and support in this new endeavor. Know that the Strawberry staff is committed to continuing high-quality education for each one of our students.
I am so proud to be an Eagle – the community connection, the commitment to working together, and the care and compassion for our students is alive and strong. Together, we can do this!
Stay home and stay healthy,
