Coffee Chat -March 2, 2022

Red Raider Community,

I’m writing to invite you to a virtual Coffee Chat that will be held on our regularly scheduled date and time, Wednesday, March 2 at 6:00pm (a link will be sent and posted). I am asking to engage with you as we discuss our ideas, and hear your concerns as we collaboratively plan support for each student and staff member as we transition from the NYS imposed mandates. 

This will only be the first step on our path forward to a normal school environment. We walk this journey together, we want to be thoughtful in considering any potential obstacles along the way. In our preparation for this meeting, our administration has outlined an engagement strategy that will position us to listen, gain perspective, and make decisions that are considerate of both academic growth and student physical & emotional safety.

As I have mentioned previously, our focus is solely on the welfare of our students and the staff charged with providing for them. The pandemic has been a traumatic experience for all school community members. Together, we will work to meet everyone where they are at and provide them with what they need to be successful. We will do this as #OneMechanicville.

My best,
