MARCH 18, 2020 - Gratitude and Community Resources for Meals
Dear Summit Families,
Thank you for your resilience and flexibility through our first day of remote learning. The strain of this situation is real. Balancing responsibilities of work, family, and our children’s education amidst the uncertainty around us is a challenge. I am grateful for our Seven Virtues and the sense of partnership that are the core of who we are at Summit, and in these times, can be our strength. We are all in this together, and we are so deeply grateful for all you are doing to rise to this challenge we face as a community.
Our faculty and staff continue to be available for support. Our teachers are available between 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM for any questions or needs. Additionally, Mrs. Wingfield is available for any school health-related questions, and both Mrs. Laughridge and Mrs. Bennett are available to provide mental health support and resources as needed. Please continue to share your feedback on how we can best support your children, and you as parents, through this time.
Additionally, we also want to share other resources available through our community partners. Currently, the Boys and Girls Club is coordinating with local restaurants to provide free dinner for families in need. Dinners are available for pick up at the Boys and Girls Club by RSVP. Here is the link to the survey to submit a dinner order: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XQLFHQD. Fishes and Loaves continues its Monday and Thursday schedule via drive-thru for dinner needs. In addition, Summit families living in Jackson County can sign up for meals through Jackson County Public Schools. Jackson County has a bus route that delivers daily meals as well as weekend food packs on Fridays. Families can sign up at www.jcpsnc.org to have their home added to the bus route. Whether or not this is a need your family faces, we encourage you to share these resources with others. We will continue to keep you informed of additional resources and information as this situation evolves.
With deepest gratitude,
