Dear Stoddert families,
We have been informed that the Washington Teachers Union is encouraging teachers to take a mental health day tomorrow – Monday, November 2.
Our current understanding is that teachers who choose to participate in that action will not be doing any formal instruction tomorrow. However, they may be in contact with their students through text messages, email, or other communication methods.
Because of the sheer number of teachers who may choose to participate in tomorrow’s mental health day, it is highly unlikely that we will be able to secure substitute teachers. Therefore, we encourage our students to engage in independent asynchronous learning activities.
