    Welcome Back Message (August 24, 2020)

    As we approach the start of the 2020-2021 school year, I would once again like to thank you for your patience and flexibility as we’ve worked to finalize our plans for the delivery of instruction. Now just one week away from our first student day, I’m excited to share that our teachers returned to school today, and are preparing to deliver lessons from their classrooms. Together with our principals and our support staff, they are working to ensure that the start of the new school year is positive and productive for every student.

    I am emailing today to remind you of the Monday, July 20, meeting of the Great Valley School Board, where I look forward to reviewing Great Valley’s reopening plan for the 2020-2021 school year. I also want to be clear about what you can expect to see in that presentation, and what information will come in the next few weeks.

    GVSD Reopening Plan (Family Letter, July 13, 2020)

    I hope that this message finds you well. I know that you have been eager to hear information about the start of the 2020-2021 school year. The District has been purposeful in how it releases information to avoid confusion and to ensure that what we share is as accurate as possible. Information and guidelines change frequently, and that has been frustrating for all of us.
