A Message from the Concord and Concord-Carlisle School Committees

To:  All Concord and Concord-Carlisle Families and Staff
From: The Concord and Concord-Carlisle School Committees

The Concord and Concord-Carlisle School Committees would like to express our utmost, heartfelt thanks to the administration, teachers, and all employees of our school districts for their courageous and dedicated leadership as we face the challenges and uncertainty posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

It is in times of uncertainty that we truly need strong leadership.  It is also these times that test that leadership.  We are incredibly grateful that the leadership of the Concord and Concord-Carlisle schools has not only stood up to that test, but has surpassed any bar we could have set.  They have stepped up as leaders in our towns and are paving the way in providing guidance and support not only for school families but for other members of the community as well.

Similarly, the teachers and staff have gone above and beyond what could be expected during these trying times.  The remarkably swift creation and launch of virtual engagement opportunities for students to both maintain skills and provide students and families with a sense of continued engagement and community has been nothing short of extraordinary.  The teachers’ outreach to students provides them with a sense of connection that is critical during a time like this, and the efforts of all employees to stay connected and be ready to step in wherever needed are invaluable.  All said, we are in awe of the significant work going on throughout the districts to ensure that our students’ needs will be addressed in the long-term and that our buildings will be clean and ready for us when we can finally return to them.

We are incredibly grateful for the strength, dedication, thought, and care that our district administrators, teachers, and employees are showing during this challenging time.

With wishes for health and safety to all,
The Concord and Concord-Carlisle School Committees
