Happy New Year! While I am sure we were all happy to say goodbye to 2020, the new year has had an unexpected start. I am still optimistic as I hope you all are as well. If the return of the students to the building this week is any indication of the positive energy and enthusiasm for the new year, then it looks bright!

First of all, thank you for being so responsive to the Travel, Activity and Health survey over the holiday break. We appreciate the time and effort everyone took in not only completing the questionnaire but also in taking the necessary steps to ensure the safest possible return. I am particularly encouraged by the fact that all screening tests have come back negative! I’d also like to thank you for your continued cooperation in completing the daily symptom and activity checks.

I have enjoyed seeing many of you in the car line and look forward to welcoming back those who decided to take a little extra time before returning on Monday. We will continue to face challenges brought on by COVID but if we remain steadfast and unified in our response, we will navigate the uncertainty of the next few months successfully.

Again, thank you for caring so much about the community and I wish you all a brighter 2021!

Acting Head of School, WMS
