School Outreach

Shrevewood Elmentary

Dear Shrevewood Families,

By now, you have hopefully seen the letter emailed to you this week from Dr. Brabrand describing the choices in front of all us parents (and teachers too). My advice at this moment is to maybe speak to your health care professionals and listen to your heart and do what’s best for your family. Know that as a parent myself, I am doing the same.

If there’s one thing I can say about Shrevewood’s families, we have persevered through this challenging time and we will get through the next stage too. Whatever decision you make, there will be highs and lows. There will be huge successes and there will be hiccups. Keep in mind, our partnership is extremely strong and we will navigate all of it together.

Soon you will receive a survey from FCPS to respond to by July 10th. After we receive the results, your amazing and talented SWES staff will be at the ready to engage in community outreach, curriculum planning, and setting the stage for an extraordinary year. As we speak, different staff members are honing their skills in blended learning, collaborating as Tier 1 Behavior Wellness Team, learning through professional development and working to brighten our school environment.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions or thoughts.  Once I get updated information about next steps, I will send out some communication to keep you in the loop. Enjoy the rest of your summer and I will be in touch with you soon! 

Sincerely,

Joshua DeSmyter

Principal
