Update–End of year dates and information 05/26/2020

Dear Awbrey Park Families,
I hope that you are all well and safe. It has been incredibly challenging.  I know that we have to be flexible and we can’t control dates and everything else in life.  Seriously, I feel like we have to be like Elastic Girl, the mom in the movie “The Incredibles.”  Soooo flexible, whether we like it or not.  You can tell we have been watching too many movies at my house!  We just have to be positive, caring, healthy, and try to take care of ourselves and our loved ones.  We are stronger together, then alone.
Here is an update on year-end events and dates.  I have been waiting to send you information, but unfortunately it keeps changing.  We have heard that there are some possible Furlough Days that may happen in June.  These are days that may be cut this year that would save money for next year.  We know that we will have a budget deficit next year.  The School Board is trying resolve this in the next couple of days.  I believe that this will be our schedule for the rest of the year.  Most of these dates will not change.  We are also not sure what school will look like in September.  In June, the State of Oregon Education Department is supposed to give us some sense of what it could be like.  As we know, these plans for September may very well change as the summer progresses.  We are going to be positive and hope for the best.
