Dear Brent Families,
This is a reminder of the importance of social distancing. The World Health Organization has now declared COVID-19 a global pandemic. This means we must all work together to help stop the spread of this virus. Simply ceasing work and education is not practical and would actually work against the important flow of goods and services that we all depend on daily. We need to go to work and visit the grocery store and attend some classes. We do not need to attend parties and other social events.
Students and parents, while we are not in school, please eliminate all unnecessary group hangouts and social gatherings. I have not been a great fan of social media in general, but oddly enough, I now find myself recommending that for the next several months you take your social life online.
