Good evening Tapestry Families,
I wanted to take this opportunity to give you all an update on our plans for these coming weeks in the wake of the rapidly changing landscape in our community right now.
Tapestry will be closed for all K-12 students, tomorrow Monday, March 16th until Monday, April 20th. All TCS instructional, admin, support, facility and food service staff will report as normal on Monday and will be given further information tomorrow about their responsibilities and expectations for the near future.
Tapestry’s Compass Leadership Team has been working urgently over the last week to develop plans for our staff and students to weather this upcoming interruption of normalcy by prioritizing the health and safety of our students, families and staff alike.
Our plan for the next few weeks is comprehensive, reactive and fluid and will work to provide families and students a continuation of both instruction, connection to their school community and crews, and social, emotional and nutritional health for all students.
More details will be forthcoming from our building leaders on the resources that will be available to families and to your children. You will all have more specific updates directly from your building principals by tomorrow afternoon.
At this point, it is extremely important to keep our lines of communication open and to be ready to give and receive information to and from the school. We will be using email, text, phone and social media (Facebook and Instagram) to communicate with you and your students over the next weeks. We will also be updating our Tapestry website regularly with details on this ever-changing situation. Please find updates on our website’s homepage at tapestryschool.org.
I want to take this opportunity to stress to you all that it is more important than ever for us all to take a nice deep breath and to remember and rely on our core values or perseverance, integrity, responsibility and respect. We are all in this together. This is a time to focus on the thing that we value the most in our community, taking great care of each other. We promote kindness and empathy in times of abundance and times of sacrifice… but always we focus our collective purpose to take care of one other.
I feel fortunate every day that I am weathering this recent storm with such an incredible community.
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me directly with any questions or concerns.
We are crew.
