Everyone is experiencing very challenging times and circumstances during the COVID pandemic. WV AllSTAR first and foremost would like to express our hopes for everyone’s continued safety and wellness, and express our sorrow if you have lost a loved one or are suffering through these difficult times. We understand from conversations in our community, locally and nationally, that decisions and preparations for the coming school year present challenges for any decision that is made, whether virtually or in the classroom, and everyone is doing their best to provide learning environments that can engage students of all ages, backgrounds, and resources, while keeping them and each other safe. We are dedicated to providing support for those efforts and are working on some resources to that aim, as well as working on some exciting opportunities for the coming year. Thank you to our Front Line Professionals and Caretakers, Essential Workers, and Educators for your service and dedication – we are indebted to you for your sacrifices.
