Principal’s Corner

January 21, 2020,

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I would like to take a moment to share information regarding the teacher in your child’s classroom. As you may know, Mr. Carlson has been absent from his classroom since before Christmas break. At this time, we are not sure when he will return. However, we are deeply concerned about the education of your child.

Until Mr. Carlson’s return, Mrs. Debbie Merriner will serve as the primary teacher in your child’s classroom. She is following the Alaska state standards for kindergarten and will be preparing lessons that support the curriculum. She will be assisted by Mrs. A. Esmailka and our teacher’s aide Sandy Evans.

Thank you for your understanding as we work through this transition with our students and their teachers. We hope it is not necessary, but we are preparing for the long term. If you have comments or questions, please feel free to call me or come by the office at school.
