FROM THE DESK OF THE PRINCIPAL

Dear SEA Families,
This past week I got a taste of my own medicine!  If you’ll recall, last week I begged families to keep their children home until they were WELL.  Not just feeling better, but feeling well in order for the virus to weaken its firm grasp on our students.  Last week, I came to school every day trying to force myself to feel well.   It didn’t work.  Even after the four days of rest, I woke up Tuesday morning even worse.  Unfortunately for me, I have pneumonia.  Why?  Honestly, had I listened to my ownwords and kept myself home when thisfirst started, I do think I could haveprevented the pneumonia.    [Please click here to continue reading.]
