Dear Somers Community,
As a collective community, we find ourselves in the midst of some of the most challenging times we have faced individually and collectively. While we are not sure of what the future holds, we know the COVID-19 conditions will evolve fluidly as we start the school year and we must be prepared to address the related changes. As educators, we will respond to the situation by reimagining instruction and student learning. This document is intended to provide a guide to ensure we reach our district vison of Educating the Whole Child.
Our school district holds a fundamental role in our community to educate our most precious resource, our children. During this time, we are fully committed to our duty to educate our children and meet the critical need to provide our families with the ability to support their families. Together, we will persevere through these challenges and, at the same time, our children will learn one of the most powerful life lessons – we are stronger together.
The coming school year will be filled with challenges. I have no doubt that we will address them directly and model for our students the strength that our community possesses.
Dr. Raymond H. Blanch
