On Thursday, March 19th, Deb Campbell, Jen Barbato, Carla Prehoda, Shelly Sady, Shaun Wilson, Bridget Liebig, and I made phone calls to each household in our school. We were asked by our Principal to check in on our families and we welcomed the challenge!

We asked them several questions including,“Do you have internet?”, “ Is your student able to access google classroom and his/her email" and "Do you need anything from us?”. The gratitude that the parents/guardians expressed was overwhelming. They were thankful to speaking to a live voice from our school. 

Their unsolicited kind words  told us we were doing a terrific job of keeping in touch and making sure the students were ok. I’m very glad that I was a part of this work. 

We truly are all in this together.
