Hello, Polk Families and Community! This is Aaron Greene with your April 6 update.
I hope everyone is well and having a great start to the week. To those of you picking up meals at our elementary schools you may encounter some minor changes in how we get those meals to your car. We are taking some extra precautions per advice from our local and state health officials to limit close personal contact as much as possible. You will likely see our staff wearing masks or face coverings during this time. We wanted you to know in advance so it would not be a surprise to you or your children. Our goal is to keep our staff and our families as safe as possible while distributing food and other resources.
We will also be looking to distribute chromebooks to students in grades 3-5 who would like to use them for schoolwork at the end of this week. More specifics on that process will be provided in the coming days. We also hope to hear back from some of our requests for internet hotspots and other technology soon.
Today’s quote comes from an Old English Proverb – “Worry is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but it doesn’t get you anywhere.” I like being in a rocking chair every now and then, but worrying too much is not good for anyone. So keep rocking those positive attitudes. Better days are ahead.
