Dear Park Hill Families:

Thank you for another good week. I admire the strength,
resilience and determination in our PHE students. As you
may have heard earlier, the Mayor has issued a curfew
as of this Sunday. At this time, this will not have any
impact on our school schedule or plans. We will
maintain ECE through second grade in-person learning,
while third grade through fifth grade will continue in the
remote setting. I hope everyone has a restful and
relaxing weekend, and look forward to connecting
again on Monday.

Happy Friday Park Hill parents!

With the announcement from DPS earlier this week regarding the shift to remote learning for 3rd through 5th grade students, I acknowledge that many of us are in different emotional places right now.  It goes without saying that none of this is easy or ideal. I appreciate those who were able to join our coffee conversation this morning, and I continue to appreciate the kind words, support and the questions you bring forth.

I cannot offer any perfect solutions right now, nor do I have a crystal ball to tell us what the next few weeks will hold. I do want to take this time to ask you as fellow neighbors, please do your part to stay safe.  Accept personal responsibility, adhere to Covid guidelines (wear a mask and practice social distancing), and limit your exposure to others.  Let us rally together as a community and make sure we are doing our part to stop the spread.  I would like to get our students back to school in-person sooner rather than later.

I hope everyone has a safe, enjoyable and quiet Halloween weekend.

Take care,
Ken Burdette, Principal Continue reading Panther Pages, October 30, 2020
