Day 9 (Day 4 Week 2) Learning from home: Goldilocks

Goldilocks:

For some, what we are doing is too much.

Please know that we hear you, and we understand. We are grateful for anything that you do.  We made an intentional decision to take slow, deliberate steps to rollout distance learning so that you had time to adjust. Being home with your family and working from home and making sure there are enough groceries and TP and managing your children and sharing wi-fi, devices, and scheduling to meet as many needs as possible is overwhelming. We hear you. We understand. It is going to be ok if you don’t get all of the school stuff “done.”

You are doing your best. It is enough.

For some, what we are doing is too little.

Please know that we hear you, and we understand. We are grateful for your kind critique and suggestions.  We made an intentional decision to take slow, deliberate steps to rollout distance learning. Being home with your family and working from home and making sure there are enough groceries and TP and managing your children and sharing wi-fi and devices, and scheduling to meet as many needs as possible might be overwhelming. We hear you. We understand. We have already increased teacher visibility and teacher-to-student connections and plan to add more synchronous time in the coming weeks. More is coming.

For some, what we are doing is just right.

Please know that we hear you, and we are grateful for your feedback and encouragement. We made an intentional decision to take slow, deliberate steps to rollout distance learning. Being home with your family and working from home and making sure there’s enough groceries and TP and managing your children and sharing wi-fi and devices, and scheduling to meet as many needs as possible could be overwhelming. We are glad you are managing it well.  We have more activities and connections coming so that your child or children have somthing new to look forward to each week.

Know that we are with you; we love you, and we miss you.

In her holding the center blog post, Sarah Barton Thomas, summed it up best:

Patience, grace, flexibility, and hope are critical character qualities, always, but especially right now.

I wish you patience, grace, flexibility and hope.
