This has certainly been a semester we will never forget. It is hard to believe that we finished the end of the year remotely. From your weekly engagement through Google Classroom to working with your children through learning packets, you made this work possible. Thank you for your partnership as we worked together to create meaningful learning opportunities and experiences for your students.
As we head into summer break, we have a few reminders for you:
While we may not have been able to do our traditional end of the year events, we hope you have enjoyed the many celebrations across our network. Check out these incredible pictures of scholars being celebrated!
Special shout out to the high school graduating class of 2020! You will forever be remembered for adapting quickly & astutely to learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are unbelievably proud of these senior classes for earning over $10 million in merit-based scholarships! Their success is a true reflection of their hard work and we look forward to all of the wonderful things they will achieve in the future.
As our teachers prepare for a few weeks off and a much-deserved break, please know that many of us are still hard at work planning for our return to school in August. While there are many unknowns and we continue to await further state and city guidance, we have begun planning for a variety of scenarios. All scenarios will prioritize the health and safety of our students, families and staff. As the summer months progress and more information becomes available, we will provide you with regular updates regarding the beginning of school. We strongly encourage you to connect with us on all social media platforms; follow us on Instagram (@KIPPNewOrleans) & Twitter (@KIPPNO) and like us on Facebook (Facebook.com/KIPPNewOrleans).
Finally, our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to each and every one of our team and family who have been directly impacted by COVID-19. We pray for health, safety, and recovery for all.
Have a wonderful summer break,
