Mark Sanders’ Perspective for the Entire School Family on Coping with the Closure

Parents,
I hope your day is off to a great start. The changes brought upon us by coronavirus have come fast and furious. We’ve all been knocked off center trying to navigate a situation that is changing day by day and hour by hour. In one of our initial planning meetings to get H.O.W.L. up and running, a colleague reminded the group that the students didn’t sign up for this, our teachers didn’t sign up for this, our parents didn’t sign up for this, but we’re all just doing the best we can. It was a great piece of perspective. I know that everyone (students, parents, teachers) is working hard to adjust and as I reflected on my experience last week (working while managing remote learning for my two children at the same time), I decided to shoot this video to share my experience during week one of our remote learning period.

Cheers,

Mark Sanders
