Principal's Update - 4/9/2020

Dear Bowmen Families,

I hope you’re all well.  It’s hard to believe that less than a month ago, we were wrapping up the second trimester and eagerly awaiting the start of third trimester and now, here we are, just learning that we will not return to regular school for the remainder of the school year.  There are a lot of emotions around that, but one thing I continue to come back to is that the Sherwood community is strong and I know that we will come out of this better.  

The purpose of today’s message is to share information about all things Distance Learning as well as our plans for our seniors.  There is A LOT of information in this email, but I figured it would be better delivered this way as opposed to several different pieces of communication.  

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Enjoy the sun!
