Letter from Superintendent Dr. Midge Connolly, June 2021:

Dear Weston School Community, 

Thank you all for the patience and resilience that each of you have displayed over the past 15 months. Living, working, and schooling during COVID-19 has been extremely challenging. Working together on behalf of all children, we’ve endured many difficulties and overcame many hurdles. We responded to fluctuating infection rates and changing public health and DESE guidelines, staying flexible and nimble, persevering, and striving to ensure safety and maximize educational opportunities for all students. Along the way we also learned many new skills and adopted new technologies and teaching practices. We’ll continue to use those that’ve had a positive impact.

As a school district, we know that taking care of the social and emotional well-being of our students has been instrumental to their success. It is now clearer than ever that we must take care of ourselves, each other, and our community. We’ve all been through a traumatic historical event and we will need to continue healing in the months ahead. As a district we will remain acutely aware of the needs of students and employees as we work through the summer to prepare for the reopening in September.

First, I want to thank our students. Through all the schedule changes, the safety guidelines and protocols, and the remote and live learning, our students braved academic and emotional challenges, persevered, and regularly put forth their best effort under extraordinary circumstances. I appreciate all the support our students received from parents and guardians in this difficult time.

I want to thank our school committee, Board of Health, nursing staff, and town officials for all their work and guidance throughout the year. I also want to thank WEEFC, PTO, BWMPO, SEPAC, Boosters, and other community groups for helping our schools to bring some normalcy, enrichment and recognition for students and teachers. I want to show appreciation to all of the faculty and staff for their impressive bravery and creativity in tending to and teaching our students. Finally, I want to recognize our families and community for their partnership and feedback, all your collaboration made a real difference.

I feel so much appreciation for all of you, and hope that you find time for joy and fun this summer. 

With Deep Gratitude, Dr. Midge Connolly
