Dear Bentworth Community,
I would like to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who has stepped up over the past couple weeks to support the students, staff, and families of the Bentworth Community. It has been extremely encouraging to see our residents, businesses, and organizations come together during this time of crisis. YOU are all amazing!
Even while our buildings are closed, work behind the scenes continues. Our teachers are continuously preparing remote learning, learning packet opportunities and resources for their students, working to keep our young people as engaged as possible. I have been very impressed with all of the positive comments regarding this new adventure and look forward to the coming weeks.
In other words, while our buildings may not be open, school is still very much in session. We are privileged to have such dedicated teachers leading the way.
To our teachers and staff, I sincerely appreciate all of your efforts to check in with students, provide these important educational opportunities, and make sure everyone is doing OK. Our students and families will continue to turn to you for guidance and a sense of normalcy as we move forward. YOUR communication is more important now than ever before.
To our parents and guardians, THANK YOU for your patience and understanding as we have worked to navigate this new adventure. We know that the school closures have been incredibly challenging for you and your loved ones. Please know that we are thinking about you and are here to help. WE will get through this TOGETHER!
We have a long road ahead of us, but from what we have seen from our community in recent days, I know we will come out of this situation stronger than ever. Once again, thank you so much.
Scott S. Martin
PROUD Superintendent of Bentworth School District
