Dear Thornton Fractional High School District 215 Staff, Students, Families, and Community,
As I begin my new journey as your Superintendent of Schools, I want to take a moment to greet you and communicate how excited and humbled I am to be a part of Thornton Fractional High School District 215! I am looking forward to meeting you, working with and alongside you, and learning about how I can best serve the needs of our District 215 community.
As your Superintendent I will always refer to our students as “Scholars”. I can’t wait to meet our scholars in person. Your voice is vitally important to the success of our district, and I am depending on you to be an active participant in your educational process as we enter a “new normal”.
Parents, guardians and community partners, the school district recognizes that your involvement is essential to the success of every scholar in our school district. I will work tirelessly to ensure that communication is provided on a timely basis, and that decisions pertaining to your child are implemented in their best interest.
Faculty and staff, I have much to learn from you about our schools, our students, our strengths and our weaknesses as a district. I look forward to being your partner in this most important work we will do together as employees of TFD 215.
As we look toward our 2020-21 school year and begin to adjust to the “new normal” in the time of COVID-19, I ask for your patience and flexibility as we plan carefully for the safety and well-being of our students and staff. Although we may have many more unknowns than ever before as we look forward to the start of the 2020-21 school year, I have a sense of excitement because of all the possibilities that working together will provide.
Be well and stay safe!
Sophia Jones-Redmond, Ed.D.
