I have two words for you that I believe go hand and hand: TIME & PRESSURE
Time... there is never enough time. The pressure to get everything done related to school, home, health, family and on and on can become overwhelming. Don’t think this only applies to adults. Think about our students and the pressure they feel from teachers, peers and parents. The stress of academics, athletics, fitting in, discovering who they are and the expectations put on them.
I can’t add hours to the day, take away mandates, lower expectations or tell you everything is going to get easier. We all are working extremely hard and trying to find the time to handle everything that is put on our plates.
One thing that myself and the other district administrators want to do for you and our students is allow everyone to unplug and find time for family and for ourselves. To do this, during the Thanksgiving break there will be NO HOMEWORK assigned for any class. Students need a break and so do you. I would also encourage all of you to leave the papers, and tests at school. There will be no work-related emails or blog posts from me during our time off.
No work should be assigned from Wednesday, 11/26 through Sunday 11/30. Any pending assignments should be completed by 11/26 or must wait till Tuesday 12/2.
