From the Desk of Mr. Byrne

School of some sort has resumed this week. It was a delight to hear the sounds of laughter, questions, and students reading aloud in person. School is about the students without a doubt. But it takes an amazing and professional staff to cope with the changes and challenges of restarting school in some hybrid form. Across the district, we hear of some schools that have many students while others have a few. We hear about staff members who are unable to return to work because of COVID 19, while other schools have everyone. At Harry Sayers, the staff has embraced the challenge of hybrid schooling and Remote Learning, but like everyone, they hope for a return to normal school. I would like to thank our families of Harry School for their support and understanding during these times. It is reassuring to know your worry about us as well.

As we close out the year we will do our best to create learning opportunities for your children whether at school or during Remote Learning. We know that your learning as parents has been incredible and we thank all the families for your support. Teaching is not easy at home or at school but we do the best with what we have and what we know.

Please stay tuned to the school website for continual updates. 

Until then stay safe and healthy.

Mr. Mark Byrne
