Welcome!

 

Dear Namaqua Parents and School Community,

 Thank you so much for all of the positive support in my first few weeks as new principal of our school.  I wish to express my gratitude to groups and individuals who have welcomed me into our school community and have advocated for our school and students in so many ways.

In the last few days, I have received feedback and communication from parents expressing concern about class sizes, especially regarding the high number of students in our 2nd and 3rd grade classrooms and reduced numbers in our afternoon kindergarten.

 I want to assure each and every parent that the staff of Namaqua is working diligently to resolve this issue.  We are currently looking at a variety of solutions.  Regardless of the final solution, meeting the needs of our children will be our highest priority.  There are multiple factors and resources available to us including reassignment of students to classrooms, reassignment of staff, and a more effective utilization of support staff. 

 Finding the best solution to this issue will be my personal leadership priority today and tomorrow.  I understand the extreme urgency of time in order to minimize the impact on students and parents.  I will be working closely with our building staff as well as district leadership to consider all available options.  Please be assured that when a final resolution has been determined, I will work to effectively communicate it with our school community. 

 I also want to stress my commitment to accessibility as leader of our school.  I covet your feedback.  Feel free to visit, email, or leave a message for me at any time. 

 -Dan
