Welcome back to all of our students, families and staff for the 2020-2021 school year. If anything, this calendar year (starting in January 2020) has taught us that this year is sure to bring about some changes, some challenges and some opportunities to grow. What hasn't changed is our commitment to our school, our community and to each other. We are so fortunate to have a special team of teaching and support staff who continue to work hard for our students, despite the many uncertainties we have experienced in the last few months. We know that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought all of us varying levels of stress, and we appreciate everyone's flexibility as we have navigated these uncharted waters.
As a team, the staff at Summerland Middle School is dedicated to providing the best possible education for our students in a safe and caring way. We echo the sentiment of Dr. Bonnie Henry who reminds us to stay calm and be kind to one another. Our school will see some changes this year that are a necessity in keeping everyone safe. Details will be published on our school website, as well as sent home via email. Above all, we encourage our community members to reach out to us if they have a concern. We're all in this together.
