Principal's Message

Dear Emerson Families,

As we just finished our official back to school night, let me take a moment to welcome you back to Emerson. This is an exciting time for teachers and students to be back in the classroom. Although we are returning to school in a remote learning format, I still feel that familiar excitement, nervousness, and anticipation of a brand-new school year. We are all ready to get started! Emerson teachers have been working diligently to create engaging lessons for students. I can’t say enough about their commitment, professionalism, and positivity. I believe your students are in good hands!

I want to thank each of you for your patience and understanding this past month. Although we have been communicating information as it becomes available, I know that you have been waiting anxiously for information from us so that you can finalize your plans. Please know that our goal is to communicate accurate information to families as soon as it becomes available.

Keep in mind that we see remote learning, no matter the setting where kids engage in it, as school. Please start setting routines and expectations for your students. Set a consistent bedtime, make sure your student has breakfast before school, have them put on their school clothes, and generally be ready for the school day. Setting these routines and expectations will make our transition into a hybrid model so much easier. We are all hoping that teachers and students will be back in our building as soon as it is safe to do so.

All of us at Emerson look forward to seeing you in the building during the next two weeks as you meet with teachers. If you have questions or need anything, don’t hesitate to ask. 

Ms. Reynolds
