Principal's Welcome Back Letter 2021

Dear Hanna Ranch Families and Friends, Welcome back for the new school year, 2021-2022. We hope you had a relaxing and enjoyable summer. We are so excited for a 100% in-person school year beginning August 16, 2021. The teachers, staff, and I are looking forward to an amazing, productive, and successful year with your children. We are aware there is much concern from community members regarding in-person learning during the Covid19 pandemic. Our goal is to assure you that the school is taking many mitigation steps to ensure a safe inperson return. Attached you will find a slide deck that shares the preventative measures taken by school sites. This is a truly collaborative effort between schools and families, and we need your support and assistance in this matter. We understand that the transition back to school during these trying times is a challenge for many kids. For that reason, we are beginning with a restorative restart emphasizing a focus on wellness and academics. During the spring and summer in-person sessions, I noticed a rejuvenation of the spirit in the students and staff. Overall, our goal is to keep nourishing that light in all of us. Speaking of light, I would like to illuminate three new members of the Hanna Ranch Team. Please join us in welcoming our new staff members: Ms. Kristina Smith-2nd, Ms. Harinder Singh-1st Grade, and Ms. Bettina (Tina) Wong-Kindergarten? All are exciting and enthusiastic and bring both diverse education and experience to the Hanna Team. Please join me in a welcome back zoom meeting Wednesday: 3-5 at 5:00: https://wccusd.zoom.us/j/9131054139 K-3 at 6:00: https://wccusd.zoom.us/j/9131054139 Slide Deck here Have a Great Weekend, Greg, on behalf of the Hanna Ranch staff
