Today is the shortest day of the year. The Winter Solstice is today. From today until mid-June, the light shines longer. As we live through the challenges of Covid-19, there is also light at the end of the tunnel. This weekend, Dr. Fauci once again shared vaccinations will be available to the general public by June.
I have great faith and hope. As the days grow longer, we draw closer to the end of this global pandemic. There is hope we will be reconnecting with family and friends in the first part of 2021. I have faith we will create an academic recovery plan to close gaps caused by a year-long disruption for our students.
We still have a couple of long, cold months ahead of us, but we see the light. We will continue to support each other, lift those in need, and provide encouragement to our team. The days are getting longer . . . the warmth of spring is just around the corner . . . we’ve got this!
