More Parent Bravos
Family of an 8th Grader
This past week has been scary for all of us. Prior to school closing you guided your teachers through learning ZOOM, showing the students how to navigate it, and never showed them the fear that so many of us felt. To think Laurel Hill was prepared to start online virtual teachings just one day after the mandate to close all schools. You kept the students on track, keeping a schedule that is so important not just for their education but also for their mental wellbeing. So many schools sent kids home with workbook pages, not learning new topics and expecting parents to step in. Just now some schools are getting to online teaching. Thank goodness you did not expect us to “home school”- I am no teacher, I am a parent! You lead us through this crisis in a very calm, with extremely well thought out plans and communicated it seamlessly. It is incredible how you responded to the situation we all were headed into.
A week into classes online and I have been able to sit in on a few. I loved Architecture and ELA. I can hear all the students and teachers throughout the day and can’t believe how “normal” and natural this is becoming for everyone. The teachers are not showing one bit of uncertainty of how to continue teaching via online. I’m sure this hasn’t been easy on them learning how to navigate through all the new methods. Cassie is even lifting weights (canned tomatoes) in gym!!! Again, not missing a beat- fantastic to witness firsthand what Laurel Hill is doing for our children!
We thank you for running an outstanding school and allowing our family to be part of the wonderful environment. We look forward to our last few months with you until Cassie graduates in June!
Be well and stay safe
