I wanted to write and update everyone on where we are headed as a school for the 2020/2021 school year.
First, I wanted to express my gratitude towards the staff, executive team and parent community at CVA for an incredible job continuing the education of our children in the face of problems we weren’t thinking we’d have to solve.
Everyone mobilized to quickly to change gears and ensure school continued through the end of the year.
It just goes to show you a school is not just the building – it’s the community of people who bring it together to serve our kids. Thank you to all of you for a job done with excellence.
As we head into summer, the executive team and Board of Directors are already pivoting into what this fall may bring. We are currently planning on a return to school with additional measures in place to ensure everyone’s health and safety. In addition, we have fallback plans in place to ensure we can continue to educate regardless of what COVID may bring our way.
In our preparation, we know there will be challenges to solve with space and resource requirements which will be more difficult than others, particularly with our preschool.
After careful consideration of the most likely return-to-school scenarios, the CVA Board of Directors has decided CVA will be suspending preschool programming for the 2020/2021 school year.
Kindergarten through 8th grade are not impacted by this decision and will continue as planned.
Our preschool staff is an incredible group of people, and we are so grateful for the job they have done teaching our littlest ones. Jodi Jansen has been integral in our school community, and her patience and wisdom have ensured our preschool kids and program has thrived for 15 years.
So it is with deep gratitude to the preschool staff that we put the preschool programming on hold; and we look forward to the future when we will reopen all under one roof.
If you have any questions or would like to pass along a kind word or note about the preschool – please write email@example.com
Thanks for your continued participation in our CVA community. I look forward to the future school year with all of you.
