Dear Wise EC Parents,

We hope that you are all staying healthy and well during this hectic time. We know that you and your children are navigating your way through the initial closure, and while you are, I want you to know that your teachers have been so hard at work generating all kinds of experiences for you to share with your child in the coming days.

Beginning on Monday morning, you will receive a daily email from the school. In those emails will be 5-6 experiences for the day, things ranging from sing-alongs to stories read by teachers to science experiments you can do in the comfort of your home. They will span all the developmental levels of our children.  In addition to this email, your classroom teachers will send you a daily email, with a question or an interactive component, specific to the curriculum of the class.  They may also set up Zoom meetings for you/your child, or even conduct a circle time through Zoom! We want to keep you busy and help you keep your child engaged and connected to school. We are hoping you will participate and help your child to participate!

With keeping your child at home, there are all kinds of feelings and challenges to manage, for both you and your child.  Please know that we are all here to help you navigate through this territory. In the meantime, I found this article to be helpful in initial conversations/monitoring my own behavior. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to be in touch with me.

Thinking of you all and sending much love.
Shabbat Shalom,
