Greetings Cypress Community,

The nation mourns an icon and tireless advocate for justice and equal rights.  Ruth Bader Ginsburg blazed a trail and fought for the law to be written and applied fairly.  She maintained a level of respect for those she disagreed with that is rare in our current political climate.  She was an American hero, and we owe a debt of gratitude for her dedicated service.

We continue to work toward offering in-person instruction on our campus.  Our staff have been working hard to support students remotely, while preparing the site and providing outing opportunities to our ABA participants.  I want to acknowledge our staff that have been putting our best practices in place and providing feedback to make them even better.  I also have a special appreciation for the staff that have made arrangements for childcare so that they are available to provide the in person support our students need. 

The test of a leader comes not when things are going smoothly, but based on how one responds to obstacles and challenges.  We have had some great examples of brainstorming and troubleshooting, and discussed the response to various scenarios that have come up or may arise to be prepared for the many possibilities we anticipate potentially facing.  Balancing the behavioral needs of our students and the health and safety of our students and staff is a challenging balancing act.  I have the utmost confidence in our staff in meeting this moment and being up to the challenge.  I have seen the leadership needed to succeed in this endeavor of creating a safe space to learn again in so many of our staff, and I am proud of their continued support for our students.

We will have a Parent’s Meeting next Monday October 5, at 2:30.  Hope to see you there!

Sincerely,

 

Nate Yates

Director of Educational and Behavioral Services
