I sincerely hope that you and your family members are staying cool during this warmer stretch of weather. This weekend allowed me to look forward to what the next year might hold, with cautious optimism as I reviewed our initial plans and reflected on the lessons learned from the Distance Learning Program. Here at Maplebrook, we are in the process of adapting to the unparalleled circumstances in which the world finds itself. In order to comply with the latest order from Governor Cuomo’s office, we have a draft of our plan to open school in September, as close to normal as we possibly can, given restrictions that may be placed on us and common sense adjustments to some aspects of school life. There is so much behind us that we have achieved as a community, and there is so much in front of us to look forward to. I hope that you are confident in the knowledge that we will do everything possible to get MBS back on an even keel in September.
Meanwhile, we continue to enjoy the buzz that permeates the campus this summer. As we begin week 3, the smiles reach for miles as the students are learning, making solid friendships and having a whole lot of fun. Just ask them about this past weekend’s slip ‘n slide! As always, thank you for your support and please let us know if you have any questions.
