Mid-week Update - March 19th, 2020

 

Dear Parents, 

 

I hope everyone is well and healthy.  I am writing to check-in and give you a mid-week update.  Dr. Lathan just met with all HISD principals online to discuss learning plans for the coming weeks.  Even though many businesses and events are put on hold to slow the spreading of COVID-19, HISD is committed to continue educating our students.  What I learned at the meeting today is that:

 

  1. HISD is making distant learning plans – this will allow all students to have access to lessons and educational resources online 
  2. The teachers will be available to teach and help students remotely – while we are unsure when we will physically return to the building, we are asking teachers to be available to help students during regular business hours

 

Additionally, I know you are also concerned about student’s Mandarin lessons.  We are in the planning process.  We are committed to teach Mandarin Chinese just like we do reading and math.

 

I will continue to provide updates as they arrive. 

 

Chung Ying, Principal
