Two weeks ago today our public health department and county office of education informed us that all of the public schools in Santa Clara County would be closed until mid April. Earlier this week, they stated that we would be closed through May 1.
In two short weeks, I have seen the USD staff rise to the task of supporting our students, one another and our community. Their efforts are nothing short of phenomenal.
As our teachers, classified staff and administrators jumped into the world of online learning, virtual meetings and video messaging, I sat back in awe. And then I realized that it was time for this baby boomer to jump into this century and step up my game.
With that sentiment, included with this message is a short video I created for students, staff and families. From the bottom of my heart, I want to express to each of you my deep appreciation, respect and love for all that you have done, and continue to do, to keep our community connected and strong.
