Thank you for your patience and understanding during this very difficult weather week. I know many of you are without power, and your streets may still be impassable. While I would have liked to have been able to open school, at least today, we rely on the expert advice of Millburn’s Office of Emergency Management who confirmed that road conditions would not be safe for our students, residents andstaff. I hope there will be much improvement over the weekend for all of you.
We have now used our 3 built-in snow days, and one additional day, which means we will need to use Friday, April 13th as a school day. If we have any more snow days, we will work backward from there.
I do want to remind you about next week’s speaker, Dr. Robert Brooks. He will be presenting to parents on Wednesday night about the topic of resilience. How do we learn, and teach our children, to bounce back in difficult times? How can we help them become self-reliant, a skill needed for success in life? You don’t want to miss this presentation – I have seen him speak at a conference and he is a highly engaging speaker. He will share strategies that he has developed that you'll want to try out for yourself and with your family. I want to thank Jennifer Sowa, our Director of Special Services, for using grant funds to invite him to Millburn. He will be working with our staff on Wednesday afternoon, to give them professional development and instructional tools to support your children.
