Lower School Director's Notes

A message from Lower School Director Erin Nemetz:

Mrs. Zeimetz making a Distance Learning Home Visit

Greetings Lower School Families,

I know how difficult the news was for you on Thursday that we will not be back in school to finish the year together. It was deeply saddening news for our Visitation Lower School team and myself. We are making plans to honor our 5th grade graduates and to finish the year strong with our Lower School traditions, connections and celebrations in a virtual format. We will communicate these events in the upcoming editions of e-news.

I want to thank all of you for your partnership in educating our Visitation students during this time. We appreciate the continued support. I spent some time at school this week and it is not the same without our wonderful students and teachers. I miss all the students' smiles, stories and energy at Visitation, but we are feeling connected with our amazing kids during Google Meets, through sharing photos and video, teacher check-in calls, emails and even some home visits. It is truly an honor to partner with all of you in such an important area: educating our children.

Here are some recent highlights of our Distance Learning program:

  • Our classroom teachers have been doing "check-in" calls to all of our families.
  • Mrs. Zeimetz and Mrs. Parenteau visited students at home (socially distancing) and delivered educational materials.
  • Mr. Wright hosted a "drive-by" event where students had the opportunity to drop off and pick up learning materials at school.
