Dear Pelham School District Community,
As we wrap up 2019-20, we are already starting to plan for 2020-21. It is going to be a unique and challenging year given the ongoing pandemic, and we need your help!
I am forming a Pelham School District Reopening Task Force (please see the attached document for more detail) and I am looking for parent volunteers. The purpose of the task force is to provide regular feedback from a range of representative perspectives on the Pelham School District Reopening Plans. At the same time, keep in mind that the task force cannot override the guidance of federal, state, or local public health officials or education officials including the Pelham School Board.
Each Principal will be selecting two parents to serve on this task force. The first meeting will be a video conference on Tuesday, July 7 from 10 am to 12 pm. I anticipate the task force will require between 2 and 3 hours of time per week throughout the summer. We will set our meeting schedule at the first meeting.
If you are interested in serving on the task force, please email a letter of interest to your school principal by Friday, June 26. I have asked them to select parents with a broad range of perspectives. The more perspectives, the better our plan will be. (Even if you are not selected, you will have opportunities to share your ideas with the parent representatives, your school principal, and me directly.)
I look forward to taking on this challenge with you all. Together we can do this!
