You baseball fans will know what I’m talking about here: in just about every season, there’s a moment when the standings finally show that mathematically, statistically, and spiritually, your team cannot possibly make the playoffs. Even though their shortcomings were evident in May, and you had watched them steadily fall 2… 5… 10… 15… games behind, there was still a glimmer of hope called “mathematical possibility” until that “e” appeared beside their name. “e” – for “eliminated.”
I’m sorry to report that the remainder of the school year got stamped with an “e” this morning. The governor has ordered all schools in Pennsylvania to remain closed through the end of the school year. It doesn’t make us feel better that every other school was eliminated too. It just stinks.
We’re working on all the implications of this, but the good news is that this doesn’t change what our next few weeks look like. And because we were expecting it, we’ve already been working on plans for how to finish the year strong. We’ll be getting more on that out to you soon.
But in the meantime, I hope you have a great Easter weekend, and know that we’re going to keep doing what we’ve always done: provide the best education to the most students in whatever way we can.
Thanks for entrusting your kids to PUCS,
