Message from Michelle Stewart


Dear Families,
Happy Stormy Tuesday!
I wanted to update you on our plans for the school.  Our highest priority is keeping students and families safe, and we want to do everything we can to keep classes open.  This morning we tried to send out a message to let you know that even without power, school was in session.  However, the power went out at our homes, and so we could not send it. Most teachers were able to send something to each class.  The good news is that we have power, heat, and plumbing as of 8:00 this morning. (The plumbing works even without electricity.) We plan to hold the after-school classes today.
We will do our best to communicate with you in a timely manner about our plans.  Unfortunately, we are not always able to access our automated system when we are not on campus, so email is our only means of communication. Yesterday we were not able to determine whether we needed to cancel school until we came to the campus, so we were not able to make a decision until after 7:30.  We apologize to the families who did not receive the message before you left for school.
We always have a land line that we can call out on one number at a time, and receive incoming phone calls. 
Thank you for your understanding and flexibility. 
Michelle A. Stewart
Happy Valley Superintendent/Principal
