On Wednesday, Governor Inslee asked schools to prepare for closure and asked each of us to engage active social distancing to quell the spread of the Coronavirus through the end of March. It is clear that, though our students are not at high risk by being at school, the broader community needs us to support the wellness of others by staying home. Thursday, March 11 is our last day with students on campus. We will use the day to prepare students for this transition and to empower them to help our community. Our faculty will spend Friday and Monday planning and begin modified distance learning on Tuesday. The complete message, sent to our families earlier today, can be found here: https://www.thelittleschool.org/important-message-tls-community.
