Virtual Town Hall for Families
March 2, 2021 | 6:30PM

Zoom Link: https://zoom.us/j/95743052884

Meeting ID: 957 4305 2884
1 (669) 900 6833

Speaking at the Virtual Town Hall on March 2nd will be Dr. Matthew Wunder, CEO/Superintendent; Dr. Jennifer Hawn, Chief Operating Officer; Dr. Emily Green, School Nurse; and Vicente Bravo, Chief Administrative Officer.

We will provide an update on our COVID-19 safety plan, discuss timelines, solicit feedback from families, and answer as many questions as we can. The Town Hall will be recorded and posted on our website. Because a Town Hall via Zoom may make it challenging to respond to everyone’s questions, we will also provide a Padlet to capture your thoughts, and request that you complete a survey that will be sent out on March 3.

(Please note: The Town Hall can only accommodate 1,000 participants. If for some reason you are not able to get onto the call, you will have access to the recording, Padlet and survey to provide feedback. Thanks for your understanding.)
