Dear Athenian Parents,
We are busy preparing for distance/online learning through May 4th. Look for an email early next week from Lauren or Amy describing any schedule or other needed changes that will occur after spring break (April 13).
As many of you know, our AWE students are returning from their journey in Death Valley on Monday. We will find a time to celebrate their return at some point, but please do not come to campus on Monday unless you are a direct family member coming to pick up your student. Unfortunately, cancelling our usual Run-In tradition was the only responsible option at this time.
Please sign up here
for our first virtual (Zoom) “Coffee and Conversation” on Tuesday, March 31 at 11:00 AM. We will talk about supporting our own and student wellness during this difficult time, and I will be joined by Mark Lukach. Mark teaches in both the Upper and Middle School. He is also the Ninth Grade Dean and the author of an international bestselling memoir on the topic of mental health. For video clips and articles by Mark, please click here
Stay well and I hope to see you (virtually) soon.
Eric F. Niles
Head of School
