Welcome to Dr. Magnuson's monthly newsletter,
New Bedford Academy families,
We are wrapping up one of the strangest school years in history! I am so impressed with how our students and their families have transitioned to this new learning environment. Your teachers have worked so hard to quickly transition their classrooms into online learning platforms with paper back-up. It has been hard work for us all, but we got through it together and I’m so proud of everyone!
We have cleaned and disinfected the building and have new protocols in place for the upcoming year to keep staff and students safe and healthy. You’ll see many changes that reflect new state and federal requirements for returning, and we still don’t know what all those might be. We appreciate your understanding that we only have all of our students’ best interests at heart when we make these changes.
We’ll keep you updated over the summer on the changes we’ll be making as further ordinances are passed. In the meantime, our building will be open for people to come tour, so continue spreading the word about our amazing school. Our small size is not only beneficial for their education, but now also for their health and safety.
It’s so hard to say good-bye this year, so instead I’ll ask you to please continue to be safe this summer, and we can’t wait to see you again in the Fall—however that may look!
