Message to Families from Acting Superintendent Elizabeth McAndrews
I want to start by saying that I’m honored to be Amesbury’s Acting Superintendent, even for a short period of time. We have all been through so much in recent months but I’m excited to help us move forward together.
I know first-hand how hard this year has been on our teachers, our students, our families and our community. We’ve faced some tremendous challenges, and we continue to make progress, but I know we have more work to do. Like you, I won’t be happy until all of our students are safely back in our buildings together.
You’re going to hear a lot from me in the coming weeks. During these transitions, I’m going to keep you in the loop about what’s going on and how it impacts our school community. I respect our students and parents, and you should never have to wonder why or how decisions are being made.
I am proud to be a part of this district, and I’m continually impressed with the level of dedication and commitment I see from my colleagues in every school. Again, I know this year hasn’t been easy for any of us, but please know that we are working hard to make the best of our current situation.
I appreciate your support and your patience during this time. Please reach out to me, your school principal or other district staff if there’s anything we can do for you.
