Dear Students and Families,
As this very unusual school year draws to a close, I would like to take a moment to share a few thoughts & sentiments on behalf of the leadership team here at Emmaus High School. None of us imagined that this school year would be disrupted and cut short in such a dramatic fashion. One day, we were all working through the third marking period, gearing up for our spring musical and sports season, and looking forward to all of the fun and exciting events that characterize the last weeks of every school year. Now, we find ourselves reflecting on the unprecedented year that is ending and already preparing for the fall, when we hope that we will be back in school together – even if things look different for awhile.
We want to thank you for your kindness, grace, and cooperation as our faculty and staff members worked to provide quality learning experiences for our students and to support their efforts to learn online from home. We have been amazed by the flexibility, tenacity and creativity that our students have shown as they have navigated this new and different way of accessing their education. They are resilient and we know that they will come through this difficult time having learned important lessons about themselves as learners and as young adults.
This communication will be followed by updates regarding report cards, course requests and schedules for 20-21, and other details regarding plans for reopening school in the fall. For now, we wanted simply to reach out to say that we miss our students very much. We wish you a safe and healthy summer and look forward to seeing our students again in the fall.
Dr. Kate Kieres, Principal
