COVID-19 Updates from Mrs. Sabia- updated 3/26/2020

Lower School Families,

I want to start by saying thank you for all you have done over the past two weeks! I cannot express how much I miss seeing our students and families daily. As we continue to navigate our new normal, I am reminded of my favorite verse from Scripture. In Psalm 46:1, it says “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” In uncertain times, I am thankful that I can stand on God’s promises daily and that His mercies are new each morning.

As we look toward the next phase of instruction, beginning March 30th, I wanted to share the expectations for lower school students. Listed below are some important details:

Daily video instruction links will be sent from teachers in both reading/phonics/spelling and math.

Tuesdays and Thursdays will feature live chat sessions through Zoom where students can collaborate with the teacher and classmates. We have arranged this schedule with upper school teachers so families who are sharing devices can plan accordingly. Teachers will share the specific times with each student. If a student cannot attend a session, the recorded link will be sent.

Individual help sessions can be scheduled with each teacher if needed. 

Prioritization of classwork in reading/phonics/spelling and math instruction. Other subject areas will be included with lesser requirements.

As long as administration is holding office hours, student work may be submitted in paper form to the front office. For electronic submission, please send directly to the teacher via email response or photo. Teachers will provide specific deadlines and timelines for assignments. 

If your child does not have access to a device to participate in the online learning activities, please email Matt Ward at 

Please be sure you are accessing RenWeb from your computer instead of your phone to be able to see all information. 

If you are having issues or concerns, please reach out to your child’s teacher or directly to me. Our faculty and staff are here to help! As always, I look forward to the calls, texts, and videos from students. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
