As we approach the end of 2020 and welcome 2021, I am excited for what lies ahead and also very proud of what WES has been able to accomplish in the midst of a global pandemic. While everyone's story is a bit different, we have all shared and experienced the same challenges that have been brought about by COVID-19. All of this has made us stronger as a school community, and as we head into the break, with the vast majority of students back in school, I am so thankful for all of the efforts made by the staff, students, and parents. Having students back in a safe environment has been our goal, and if we all continue to make good choices for the collective good, our reopening plans will continue. While a vaccine is on the horizon, it is far too early to let our guards down. I hope that you are all able to celebrate over the holiday season in a safe way. Have a wonderful holiday break and Happy New Year!
