Delayed Reopening of School/Reapertura retrasada de la escuela

September 3, 2021

Dear Families,
Welcome to the new school year. I hope all of our families are well and safe and have enjoyed
the more relaxing days of summer.

I know that everyone is eager to begin school; however, as you are aware, we have had severe
weather this week that has caused much damage in our neighborhood and city.
Unfortunately, our school as well has suffered significant water damage in the basement area.
Since yesterday, a team of workers has been at our school building to remediate the damage that
was caused by the flooding.

Out of concern for the health and safety of our students, staff and families, we are delaying the
opening of school until Monday, September 13, 2021 when we will begin the new school year
with a full day of classes for grades K-8. PKA classes will follow their own schedule that week
and we will communicate this new schedule to the families. We will not begin school this coming
week since we anticipate continued repairs to the basement area will be taking place.

I regret having to take this action; however, we want to make sure that are students and staff
members are working in a safe environment.

Thank you for your understanding.

Sincerely yours,
Thomas R. Piro, Ph.D.
Principal

Estimadas familias,

Bienvenidos al nuevo año escolar. Espero que todas nuestras familias estén bien y seguras y
hayan disfrutado de los días más relajantes del verano.

Sé que todos están ansiosos por comenzar la escuela; sin embargo, como saben, hemos tenido
un clima severo esta semana que ha causado muchos daños en nuestro vecindario y ciudad.
Desafortunadamente, nuestra escuela también ha sufrido daños importantes por agua en el
sótano. Desde ayer, un equipo de trabajadores ha estado en el edificio de nuestra escuela para
reparar los daños causados por la inundación.

Debido a la preocupación por la salud y la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes, personal y
familias, estamos retrasando la apertura de la escuela hasta el lunes 13 de septiembre de 2021
cuando comenzaremos el nuevo año escolar con un día completo de clases para los grados K-8.
Las clases de PKA seguirán su propio horario esa semana y comunicaremos con las familias del
horario nuevo. No comenzaremos la escuela la semana que viene ya que anticipamos que se
llevarán a cabo reparaciones continuas en el área del sótano.

Lamento tener que tomar esta medida; sin embargo, queremos asegurarnos de que los
estudiantes y miembros del personal trabajen en un ambiente seguro.

Gracias por su comprensión.

Sinceramente,
Thomas R. Piro, Ph.D.,
Director
