Good Morning PS 9 Family,

I hope that this email finds you and your loved ones healthy and peaceful. Yesterday was a challenging day for the community as we faced the devastating reality of losing a teacher and a challenging night, as we faced the sounds of our thoughts and fears. I cannot make sense of this reality with my mind and will instead come from my heart. “Love never dies, it just changes form,” is what I tell myself to stay focused on love. To that end, we wanted to highlight the love we feel and have started this by creating a memorial page for Ms. Vizcaino. I want to personally thank Ms. Oz for her support with all things technology. Please visit this website and join us in celebrating Ms. Vizcaino.

Also, please be reminded that there will be a zoom meeting at 5 p.m. for the community as we navigate these surreal times together. In addition, we are having a zoom meeting with class 304 students and families today as well. Those families were called yesterday to be able to prepare and given the access information.

We are coming together for support this evening on ZOOM, open to the community. We hope to offer some peace during this sad time. Please see below for information.
