Letter to Parents March 13: School Closing
March 13, 2020
Dear Craig Family,
Today has been a tipping point for our region regarding public health concerns and school closures.
Beginning Monday March 16, 2020 through March 27, 2020, The Craig School will be closed. This includes both of our campuses. We will reassess no later than Wednesday March 25, if we will extend our time away from our buildings.
No decision at this time can be made regarding return to school. The two school systems in the towns in which we operate also are closed. This decision we made is under the spirit of "an abundance of caution".
Earlier today, all of our parents received specific information about virtual learning and instruction in emails from the School.
Craig Lower and Middle School- Virtual learning and instruction will begin on Tuesday, as there are also paper packets that some of the students have not received for their classes. We are mailing them today.
I want to applaud our teachers who have worked so hard this week to prepare for this closure. Please note that we will all do our best. We are ready to serve all of you, but there will be unexpected circumstances. I have confidence that all of us will be patient and we will work thru this together
As the Head of School, I have the utmost concern for our community. This decision has been driven by our geographic location. We do have students in nearly 60 other zip codes. That said, several transportation companies have called me to say they would not transport your children, some of you have written me about your specific town plans, and all of that has gone into this decision.
Thank you again for your support. All of this information and other resources for you and your family will reside on the Craig website. Please note there is a banner at the top of the website to click for that information.
I live by the phrase (now popular)- we are all in this together, and I wish all of you the best as we are in "uncharted waters"
Head of School
