Good evening Merrick Academy family. As we continue processing the loss of our faculty member Ms.Gayle, we are in the midst of planning how we move forward. In this planning, we are setting up counseling services for both our faculty and families. We will have more information to share during Wednesdayʼs Coffee with the Principal. Please note that our Coffee with the Principal will be focused on Merrickʼs loss, Support systems we are putting in place, and Continued Distant Learning.
We are asking that only 4th and 5th-grade parents attend our 9 AM Coffee with the Principal on Wednesday. We are asking all other parents to join us at the 5 PM coffee with the principal meeting.
During our planning process today we saw the need to extend the cancellation of our live sessions until Thursday. This means Wednesday classes will not be taught live.
Students will receive work through Google classrooms. Please look for email communications from your childʼs teachers concerning Tuesday and Wednesday lessons.
We thank you for all your kind and encouraging words during this time and we understand that this is not just a loss for our faculty but for our whole community. If you find that you need immediate support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
