Letters: I can’t thank our Richmond school enough

Dear Editor,

I would like to express my gratitude towards all of the staff at James Thompson Elementary.

Especially to our principal Mr. Juhasz, our teacher Mr. Stokes, and our school secretary Mrs. Fung.

Thank you for keeping our school community and our children safe. It is very evident that you prioritize the health and safety of your students, and for that, we as parents are extremely grateful.

You make sure that we complete the Daily Health Declaration and you provide us with socially distanced classes whenever possible.

You encourage us to send our children to school wearing masks, to bring hand sanitizer, to label our own belongings and to bring paper bags to protect the masks while eating.

Thank you for your diligence and for your hard work during this difficult time. All of the teachers at James Thompson continue to educate their students on the safety of both themselves and the community at large, wearing PPE to serve as active role models.

The staff works hard to promote safety as well as ease the burden of this transition while keeping morale high during these turbulent times.

The teachers have also been working hard to ensure that our children are able to learn and understand all the required material for their grade level despite this year being a little different.

A huge thank you also goes out to the custodians who tirelessly clean our schools to ensure that it safe for our vulnerable youth.

Lily The and family
