Dear APCS Family
We miss having all of us together in the classroom. If this was a snow day, it would be so exciting to be home and I would see you tomorrow. But this is different and scary.
There is so much we don’t know. We don’t know how long things will be different. We don’t know how bad things will get. Here is what we can tell you. We are all listening to our leaders and the people who run our city and our country. Though the news changes almost every day we are doing every thing we can to keep sickness away.
We do know that that there is a sickness that people can have before they know it. They might not even get sick. But they can carry the sickness to others and get other people sick. Very sick. As we stay away from groups of people and every time we wash our hands we are taking a step to keep people healthy and safe. We are all doing this together.
There are a lot of things we are missing. Sports, parties, hanging out with friends. Class trips and graduation. That is a real bummer. But the more we skip now, the faster the sickness will go away and things will get back to normal.
In the next couple weeks we will talk about big words like pandemic and immune systems and viruses. We will also talk about what it means to keep our eyes on Jesus when the storms around us are dark and scary. (Matthew 8:23-27, Mark 4:35-41,and Luke 8:22-25).
And we will keep in good touch with you. As we work on school together. As we continue to Learn and Grow and Shine. Even in hard times.
