Hello Woodside Families,
I'm sure you are trying to figure out how to make the best out of this very strange situation in which we find ourselves. Our school district has been working tirelessly to make sure that your students do not experience a slump in learning over the weeks of closures. The most accurate and up-to-date source of information in regards to school is the Everett Public Schools Home Page (https://www.everettsd.org/). Click on the links on the left to see information about talking to children about COVID-19 and resources for student engagement during the school closure.
As of the evening of March 23, 2020, it sounds like we will all be at home for the next couple of weeks. The best way to communicate with teachers and other staff is to email us. If that isn't possible for you, please call our phone number and leave a message. I will be able to check email throughout each day; phone messages every few days. I also just added a check-in form in the Quick Links to the right. I will get an email notice whenever someone completes the form. If you would rather send an email, you can click on my name below.
I will continue to plan on delivering weekend food bags to those students who have been taking them home all year. until I am told not to do it. My delivery day will be Thursdays between 10 am - noon. With the latest social distancing guidelines, I will leave the bag outside your door and knock to let you know it's there. I'm sorry I can't stay to visit or get the usual hugs. Just know that I care about you and hope that you are all safe and healthy.
Some exciting news for our kindergarten students: All of us in the B building packed up our rooms so we can move to our new locations. The kindergarten students will have brand new rooms when they return to school. You will be able to find me in a closet in the cafeteria, sharing space with our administrative para-educator, Ms. Kristin Knott. She has been gracious enough to give me half of her room while I wait for the new office building to be completed.
I miss seeing the students' lovely faces each day. Please keep in touch and stay healthy.Woodside School Counselor425-385-7810
