April 6, 2020 - A Message from Head of School Kurt Pusch

Dear Summit Families, It is hard to believe we are now into our fourth week of remote learning. We miss our students and families around campus, and hope you all are staying well! Thank you for all you continue to do to support your children’s education and wellness through this time. We continue to monitor our school closure with updates from the state. As of now, school remains closed until May 15, though we are planning for the possibility that the closure may extend beyond. We will continue to keep you informed as we have more information. Our priorities remain focused on supporting our families and continuing our students' academic and whole-child learning through remote learning. Please continue to let us know if you have questions or feedback.

You should have received your child’s weekly learning plan in your email on Friday, April 3. Please let us know if you have any questions. We have a few recommendations as you support your child’s learning from home this week:

  • Continue to maintain a schedule and sense of routine as much as possible, including structured time for learning and scheduled time for breaks and play. Keeping a sense of consistency can help keep students on-track, and also provides a sense of assurance amidst so much change.

  • Teachers have worked to keep lessons simple and focused on the most essential learning. Please utilize the instructions teachers have provided to help students accomplish their learning goals for the week.

  • Please continue to encourage your children to apply their best effort and strive for excellence in their work. Remember that our teachers are available for support!

Moving forward, we will continue to follow our school calendar. Spring Break starts this Friday and continues through next week. Accordingly, students will not have new assignments during the break. I hope that you all are staying well and continuing to find new opportunities in this time with your children. We miss all of you and look forward to seeing you again sometime soon!

With gratitude,


P.S. Here is your weekly Bear Express!
