Walker Families, 3/30/2020
I have been searching for the right message to send the community and I landed on this — I hope each of you and all of the members of your family are healthy.
A friend of mine in New York City had/has the virus (although undiagnosed due to the situation there) and he said it was a rough seven days for him.
I have been worried about Covid-19 for a while now, but having a friend ‘get it’, personalized it in a big way for me. (He is feeling better now)
My wife is doing a great job working with my two oldest kids, while the younger two climb on top of me while I try to respond to email.
If you are struggling with the reality of the last two weeks, and foreseeable future, in the words of BIll Clinton, “I feel your pain’.
— There is no school this Friday — it is a professional development day for teachers. Virtual professional development of course.
— If the work being sent home is ‘too much’, make the best choices for your family. Seriously.
— I will schedule weekly virtual ‘coffee (or wine) with the principal’ after Spring Break. It will be a chance for you to ask questions and see how fast my hair is growing. I’m hoping for a poor turnout.
— I appreciate YOUR collaboration with Walker teachers to do something we never thought we would have to do.
If you have questions, please ask.
