Greetings Bruce Families,
For many of our district’s families, we respect that life has taken many twists and turns since early March. I honor you for supporting your children as they learn from home. Our teachers and school administrators have all done an incredible job maintaining your children – Bruce’s students - as the priority. We will continue this as we plan to re-enter our campus in October and begin our year virtually September 8, 2020.
Yes. It’s true! We are getting ready for the new school year. We have been working diligently to staff our school and develop solid systems and structures to welcome our scholars back safely into the building. Our theme this school year is “Building A Safer Learning Environment.” We are passionate about returning to school as we knew it before Spring Break when we return in September. While we can’t make the promise that will happen, we want you to know that is certainly the plan we are pursuing at this time.
We know that you likely have new questions about our return to school September 8, 2020. With that in mind, I will be hosting two virtual meetings on Zoom and I am asking every Bruce parent to make arrangements to attend. I am eager to hear from you. We would like to discuss pertinent information regarding the start of our school year. As a leader my priority is to serve the Fifth Ward Community and ensure we are making the best decisions for students. I really would like to hear from each of you. I have included steps for joining me virtually Thursday August 6, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. or at 3:00 p.m. Please do not hesitate to contact us at 713 226-4560 for more information about the scheduled meeting.
We would also like for each parent to complete the Bruce Technology Survey. This survey includes general information regarding your current access to technology, as well as questions about each child’s experience with remote learning. This survey can be found on our school website and the link has been included below. We look forward to hearing from you in the coming days. The Technology Survey will be open for completion until August 24, 2020.
