Greetings to all:
First of all, I want to say to parents, grandparents and community members, it has been a trying time for all of us.
We have been closed since March 16, 2020. It seems like a lifetime, yet it has only been a few days. Students, we have not forgotten you. We are going through what you are going through. We miss the hustle and bustle in the hallway as you try to get to your class, and staff ensuring student safety. When we look down the hallways in our homes, we see them empty. Teachers, I'm sure, are using teacher voices with their husbands or wives, to family or friends, only to confuse the situation. I know teachers were not prepared for an early dismissal; it is trying times for them too.
So if you can, try to enjoy your precious time with family and friends; we do not know what the future holds.
I encourage everyone including Eagleview students, to stay home and follow the protocols and the policies that will be implemented in the future. In other countries, students had an opportunity to make a difference, an opportunity that was lost. Family members were lost due to coronavirus.
We want you in our hallways and classrooms. You are a big part of our school community; school is part of you and your future. It is also your social function, and that makes our school special. You are indeed Eagleview students, proud Eagleview students, and we are all proud of you.
We are moving to a phase where we can still unify. I know I have been telling you to put your cell phone away and go to your class and learn. Now I want to encourage you to use your technology(cell phone), to learn and be part of Eagleview again.
Our IT team has created an Eagleview website. There you will find an Eagleview blog. This site you will send you to your teacher's blog; the blog will have a brief message from your teacher, along with attachments and assignments and even activities. They are systematically attached so you can engage with your teacher. Instructions will be provided. The site should be user friendly; don't hesitate to send a message if the system is not working for you. We also ask you to use our internet at Eagleview. Park outside our school to have access. However, internet usage will be limited to time.
I hope you take advantage of our new system.
I will be forwarding a message to grade 12 students. There is a need to meet. If you receive a message from me, it means you are graduating. I talked to Mrs. Whitstone to make arrangements for cap and gown pictures. Other things need to be mentioned, there will be an email or a letter going out to you, we will let you know one way or another. Looking forward to seeing you in your cap and gown.
For now, take care and be safe.
