School starts this week for DPS. Some have already started school, and others have a bit more time before they go back.
Teacher, Students, Administrators and Families:
I see you .
I hear you.
I am praying for you.
Going back to school is always a heady mix of anticipation, joy, fear and too many emotions to name.
This year is like no other. Families and employees are having to make choices attempting to balance a complex set of needs including physical health, mental health, childcare needs, intellectual stimulation, and more.
Whatever choice you make: I say, “Good for you.”
If you need to talk through your choices, or if you need to rethink your choices, remember I’m available to talk.
As you and your children live into this school year, make an effort to keep connected to people and activities you love. Remember you are more than this. Remember that it won’t be this way forever. Remember that surviving this pandemic is the goal, not perfection.
You’ve got this!
And when you don’t, you’ve got a community to support you.
Blessings on this school year.
