Mr. Brian Rucinski
Dear Meteor Families,
I can’t believe the 1st quarter has come and gone and we are now into the 2nd grading period. At this point, you are likely aware that TF North and D215 will continue with Remote Learning through at least the end of the 1st semester. This means that the earliest we will have in-person learning is January. We desperately want our students back in the building, however we need to continue to use science and data to determine when it is safe. We have been working hard to create the best possible remote learning experience for our students, and we continue to make changes to enhance the experience.
One of those changes is that starting November 4th, Wednesdays will now be designated as “Student Support Wednesdays”. This will relieve some of the pressure and workload for our students, while also creating more support to ensure the success of every student. Please check your email for more information on our new Wednesday schedule.
We also know that our students both want and need social and emotional support throughout these difficult times. Between recent racial injustices that have occurred, a worldwide pandemic, and an economic downturn, the last eight months have had a profound impact on young adults in our community and across the country. Students need an outlet and a sense of belonging, both of which are made more difficult by the fact that we are not physically in school. However, I’m happy to say that our activities and clubs are up and running. I strongly recommend that you encourage your child to get involved in at least one of our clubs. Please use this link: Activities Videos to view the promotional videos our clubs created and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
