    As we enter into the last week of October a few reminders to parents and students particular to student’s remote days. Students should be using the school issued Chromebook during the remote days including Wednesdays. There are several programs students are required to use on their remote days that are monitored by the teachers while the students are working. Teachers are not able to assist students or account for the completion of assignments and activities if the students are not using the school issued Chromebook. I appreciate families' support with this.

    I want to start by saying how proud I am of our Whitin students this past Thursday and Friday. Whether students were in-person or remote, our Whitin students were ready to start the school year. Students in-person had their masks on, Chromebooks charged and followed all guidelines and expectations. Students online were on their Chromebooks for 7:40, and checking their emails and logging into Zoom meetings throughout the day. While there were some technical issues which we are still working through, the students showed perseverance and resilience. Again, I cannot be more proud of the students this week.

    I hope everyone had a wonderful and restful long weekend. We are only about a week away from the start of the 2020/2021 school year. The Whitin faculty and staff have been working hard this past week to learn techniques for teaching remotely, how to connect with students both in-person and at home and how to best carry out their perspective curriculum. Faculty and staff will continue their work this week as well as prepare their classrooms for in-person and remote learning.
