After Christmas Break we will remain virtual until at least January 12. Our School Board will meet on January 11 (moved from January 4), to revisit our planned instructional model. If we can safely return to in-person learning on January 12, that will be the recommendation I make to our Board. Hopefully, the scales of risk will have shifted back by that time.
Finally, let me say once again how proud I am to work with each of you. You have pulled off the impossible this semester. Your dedication, willingness, and courage to serve the children of Bristol, VA during this pandemic have been more than remarkable. You have sacrificed so much to take care of the needs of our students, and you have won a huge fan following along the way. I have had very few conversations over the last few months where someone didn't say something to me about how amazing our entire staff has performed throughout this pandemic. You are heroes to me, our School Board, our students, and our community.
