Hello! Welcome to a new school year! I wanted to inform my new students and families that I will be taking some time off at the beginning of the school year to help care for ailing parents. It is a very difficult time for our family right now. My FMLA wil continue until mid-November. Mrs. Stigter will be teaching the students starting right away in August. She is an amazing teacher that comes to us with much experience. She is highly qualified. Most importantly, she is kind and loving and will give your children the nurturing and guidance they need to thrive in second grade. Please refer to her web page each week for updates and news letters. Mrs. Stigter and I have been meeting throughout the summer to plan and prepare for an awesome school year! If you need to contact me for any reason, feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com. I will be checking my e-mail when I am able to. Thanks for your understanding. Sincerely, Lori Coverick _____________________________________________________________ We are implementing a new Internet Safety Curriculum called Common Sense Media.
