Update from the Headmaster: Ask Me Anything Webinar on Thursday

Dear Parents,

It is unimaginable that two months ago, we were together in our main gym, watching the student-faculty basketball game and getting ready for spring break. Life has changed so much in the intervening weeks.

We all have questions about the future, and I can assure you PDS has begun the process of multiple scenario planning for next year. It is our intention to open school and provide the full PDS experience beginning August 19. I am thankful for the summer to be able to create concrete plans, train our teachers, invest in appropriate resources, and be ready for implementation in August. As we know more, we will certainly communicate this information with you.

I imagine you have many questions, and I want to be helpful and transparent in my responses. I am hosting an AMA (Ask Me Anything) meeting on Thursday, May 7, from 5:00-6:00 pm. I will be joined by Board Chair, John Alexander, and the event will be moderated by Trustee and Search Chair, Michael Stockburger. Please submit your questions in advance by using this form. We will do our best to answer your questions during this webinar. You can submit questions until 8:00 pm on Wednesday, May 6.

As always, I appreciate your investment in your son’s education. This new era is a time when independent schools can truly shine, and I hope and trust you are finding a strong partner in your son’s education.

Thank you,

Steve Hancock
