Dear Parents/Guardians:

We wanted to send a brief note today to wish you all a wonderful long weekend. There will be no Remote Learning on Monday. We will be celebrating Decoration Day, or what is now known as the Memorial Day Holiday on Monday, May 25th. Please join us in honoring the military personnel who died while serving in the United States Armed Services. This holiday observance dates all the way back to the Civil War in the 1860’s.

As you all know, next week is the last week that all students will be participating in Remote Learning. For those of you participating in the meals program, pick up has been moved to Tuesday and Thursday, due to the holiday. It will be the last week for the meals program.

You can anticipate receiving a message on Wednesday with details about the last day of school parade. We do hope to share a smile and a wave at the drive by on Friday.

Plans are moving forward for the 8th grade promotion exercise. Unfortunately, due to space constraints and the requirement that all participants stay in their cars, this is a ticketed event. Only parents of 8th graders will receive tickets. We are pleased that the Chester PACT has volunteered to video record this event, as well as the last school day parade. So there will be opportunities or everyone to view the event at a later time.

Once again, we want to thank you for all of your understanding and support during this unprecedented time. We know that it has not been easy and we appreciate all that you have done in concert with our staff on behalf of student learning.

As always, if you have questions or concerns that are not addressed in our updates, please do not hesitate to send me an email at lockwoodd@chesteracademy.org . We will do our best to provide you with a prompt response.  

Have a wonderful weekend! Thank you for your continued support. 

Darrell J. Lockwood, Ed.D.
