I hope that this message find you and your family safe and healthy as we navigate through this unprecedented health crisis. As an educational leader, I am accustomed to overcoming challenges and helping to find solutions, but COVID-19 is a situation unlike any that I have encountered before. My heart and prayers go out to anyone who has been impacted directly or indirectly by the virus.  My greatest concerns are the health and safety of all stakeholders and the continued learning for all of our students. The instructional staff of East Sunflower have prepared lessons that will keep students engaged during our school’s closure.

Lessons can be accessed on-line on the school’s website. Teachers have also sent assignments through Class Dojo. On-line educational programs include i-Ready, Study Island, Prodigy, Starfall, etc. For students without internet access, learning can still continue. Parents should read and help students with basic math facts. Assign writing topics that will help them both academically and emotionally. Use any learning material that is in the home. Keep students on an academic schedule and exercise as we await safer conditions.  Food bags are also being distributed to students daily between 12 and 1 p.m. on the school’s campus.  

Continue to be a support system for your family and the community. Pray for them, the leaders of our country, and mankind. Adhere to the safety guidance of our local, state and national leaders.   

I will keep all stakeholders updated as new information becomes available. Stay safe and believe that a better day is coming.
