We wanted to take a moment to touch base with you regarding the days off in early October.
First off, we have heard you – when we added the extra day off in October, we caused a problem in the arrangements you had already made with sitters, with work, and with plans for those days. We have made note of this concern and will be careful to avoid making future changes like this if possible. If and when we do, we will continue to provide as much advance notice as possible. We do not anticipate it happening often.
You may be asking, “But why the change?”
On October 10 & 11, our entire district will engage the “Capturing Kids' Hearts” training from the Flippen Group. ALL staff in our district will spend those two days gaining valuable tools for talking to and working with kids in a manner that builds engagement and improves school climate.
The training is simple. It is effective. It improves climate for staff and student.
There are many, many, “good things” going on in Litchfield schools and we look forward to sharing them with you as we move forward!
