On the afternoon of March 13, 2020 I made an announcement to our campus that due to the Corona Virus Pandemic we would be closing our doors until further notice. I never anticipated that as of the date of this writing, (March 9, 2021) our doors would still be closed. Thank you to all Colony families and Colony staff members for making the best of a tough situation. We have learned so much during the last 12 months. As it pertains to education, I am proud of what we have accomplished. It hasn’t been perfect, and we have all had to adjust but we should be proud of the progress we have made.
As we strive to reopen our doors to the Hybrid Model of instruction, I am excited for what lies ahead. I understand the anxiousness, but strongly feel we are ready to begin the process of getting back to school. Our District has continued to gather input from our stakeholders, health agencies, San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools, and our Board of Trustees to ensure proper planning is guiding our return. As we begin and progress through the Hybrid Learning Model, we will continue to examine our plan and revise as necessary.
There is no question that COVID-19 has affected all of us in one way or another. The hardships that have come our way have been devasting, yet we continue to persevere. For Colony High School, as we close out this school year, my goal is to provide you with the best possible educational experience. I have a special place in my heart for the class of 2021 and hope for opportunity to plan meaningful end of year activities-stay tuned. For the class of 2022, 2023, and 2024 I want to get us started in the right direction as we plan for the fall of 2021.
Moving forward, we will plan based on guidelines set fourth by the local and state officials and our District. Please know that we look forward to reuniting our students with their high school community. We have done much in the area of Distance Learning, and we look forward to the progression of learning in the Hybrid Learning Model. Let’s make the 4th quarter the best it can be.
Love you all,
