Principal's Address

Summer 2020



Dear Schuylkill Community and Visitors,

Welcome to Schuylkill Elementary School’s website. Perhaps you are a current parent who is searching for answers as to what the 2020-21 school year will look like. Perhaps you are an out-of-district sojourner looking for what opportunities await our elementary students in grades 2 through 5. In any event, welcome!

This year we will be challenged with coordinating the learning needs of over 500 children during a continued pandemic. This was no small task in the spring, and will certainly present some hurdles in the new school year. We are up to the challenge! Responding to the guidelines of health organizations and the Pennsylvania Department of Education, we have evolving plans for maintained social distancing, sanitation and disinfecting protocols, virtual learning options, and safety protocols for symptomatic individuals.

Simultaneously, we are looking forward to creating a sense of calm and routine whenever and wherever possible. Our students have been without face-to-face teacher support, social interactions with peers, and the predictability of a schedule. As a staff, we are keenly aware of the need to prioritize social-emotional components to our teaching in response to the ongoing traumas of a COVID19 environment. We believe that building relationships, and continuing the support for our students and their families, will provide the unshakable foundation for student learning.

           

Together we can.

            Together we will.

            Together we are Phoenixville.

 

Thank you,

Catherine L. Renzulli, Ed.D.
