Family Letter #8
November 13, 2020

Dear LPS Families,

First and foremost, I want to express my deep gratitude for your continued cooperation.  We continue to proceed and progress in uniquely challenging times.  Forward progress happens in large part depending on the extent to which the community stays together.  I appreciate our partnership during these times.  I am writing to inform you that last night, the Lynn School Committee approved a proposal to continue with remote learning until February 5, 2021.  The proposal also includes an intent to provide in-person learning for high needs special education students and those with limited formal or interrupted education beginning January 19, 2021.

I take no pleasure in extending remote learning.  I know full well the impact that this approach has on students and families alike.  Further, I continue to believe deeply in the research that places in-person learning and all of the related benefits over virtual learning.  That said, the current context of surging positive COVID-19 cases among school age children and adults alike in our community has created a situation that makes the introduction of an in-person hybrid schedule for all students inappropriate.  Furthermore, in our community, an increase in positive COVID-19 cases following holidays carries with it an unfortunate predictability.  The decision to remain in remote learning until February 5th is based on the current state of affairs in Lynn as well as the medical community’s prediction for the coming weeks.  This and all decisions are always anchored in what we believe creates the safest conditions for students and staff. 

The groups of students who are invited to begin receiving in person instruction on January 19th are those whose needs we struggle to meet the most in the remote learning format.  The selection of these groups is not at all intended to marginalize the experiences or needs of other students or to suggest that these are the only students for whom the remote learning is difficult.  The students invited for in-person learning are those whose learning and growth needs cannot be met in remote learning, regardless of the skill set or technological approach.  The start date of January 19th was selected to allow for any holiday-related surges to decrease before students return.  Families with students in these programs will receive communication under separate cover.

We have certainly come a long way with respect to facilitating student learning and growth in remote fashion and we will continue to work to provide the most optimal and impactful approaches to remote teaching and learning.  Our partnership means a lot and thus I welcome you to be in touch with staff at your student’s school to answer any questions or discuss any necessary supports.  I will continue to keep the lines of communication open. I will host a Virtual Town Hall for all families on December 2, 2020 at 6 p.m.  Links for this event will be shared on Tuesday, December 1st. 

Yours in partnership,

Patrick Tutwiler, PhD

Self-Care and The Holidays and Tips to Manage Stress

Self-Care and The Holidays

- The holidays can be a time of hustle and bustle, but they can also be a time of learning and slowing down the pace. A time to take care of ourselves and one another.

- We can look at the values the holidays can teach at these times: expressing gratitude, participating in acts of kindness and compassion, and experiencing the joy that can be felt by giving and helping others.

- The sharing and giving make the giver and the receiver feel good. This simple act and positive feelings associated with it is teaching the essential social-emotional skill of empathy.

- Ever year at this time, we are reminded how difficult holidays can be for those who are lonely, alone, have varied mental health or learning needs, homeless, health challenges, or are trying to balance ever increasing work and home life demands.

- Often the stress associated with the holidays comes from feeling overwhelmed or having unrealistic expectations. We hope the tips we offer will help minimize stress you may experience.

Tips to Manage Stress During the Holidays

1. Celebrate family traditions and create new ones
Talk with your children about family traditions- how they began, family members who started them, which ones they love, new ones you might start and add to the list of well-loved family traditions

2. Acknowledge any changes in the family
This is especially important when family dynamics have changed because of divorce, a new marriage or sibling, a family member who is ill, a death in the family, or family member(s) who would normally be with you at the holidays who may not be this year due to travel restrictions.

3. Be realistic about your expectations
Set realistic expectations and ask for support when you need it. Gently remind yourself the holidays are not about perfection. Practicing patience, flexibility and compassion will only help as you balance all of the demands.

4. Prepare kids for changes in their routines
Holidays are a change in the normal schedule, and for some kids that can be overwhelming. Change can leave kids feeling anxious or unsettled. Preparing kids for changes in their routines- what to expect and expectations you have for them can help decrease anxiety. If possible, try to keep some routines the same. This predictability will help a child feel less anxious.

5. Holidays are not easy- Extend grace to yourself, if possible, give yourself a break
Self –Care is important. Try not to stretch yourself too thin. Decide what is important, prioritize, and say “no” to what you can’t handle. If you or your family could use some added support or assistance, please reach out to your school. Student Support Staff are here to help!

6. Be sure to laugh and have fun!
Kids can pick up on the stress and tension adults feel. Find things that makes you laugh, enjoy your children for who they are, and remember it’s often the unexpected, small moments that matter most and the ones you will likely remember and cherish most!
