From the Principal

August 25, 2020

Dear Webb Families,

We hope you are ready to join us as we walk through this most unusual year together.  Although this is not how we hoped to start the year, we are busy making preparations to meet the academic, social and health needs of all of our learners. 

Our classroom teachers  create innovative, engaging lessons that are differentiated to meet the needs of students at all different levels so that we can optimize learning in both synchronous and asynchronous environments with remote instruction to start and then for face to face learning at school as soon as possible. Our MTSS team works alongside our classroom teachers and provides intervention and extra support to those who are struggling in reading and/or math.  Using an inclusion model, our Special Education resource teachers provide support for students and teachers in the classroom as well as provide intervention out of the classroom for students based on need, and our self-contained special education teachers work side by side with parents, support staff and paraprofessionals to make sure all of the students are learning and growing.

A positive school culture is important to all of us here at Webb, and we have worked hard to develop activities and coordinate services to support that.   Our focus is on providing a proactive approach to supporting positive behavior throughout the school and we have established many ways that we celebrate that positive behavior with exciting daily, weekly and monthly activities and events for our Webb Students that will be in place for both remote and in person instruction.   Each of our staff members works to build relationships and get to know the students so they can support them academically, socially and emotionally. 

We view our Webb families as equal partners in providing our children with meaningful educational experiences and we encourage you to become active participants in our various school programs and classroom activities.  It truly takes a village to raise a child and we are committed to being part of that village along with our students and families.

Safety is always a top priority all year at Webb and we are prepared to welcome our students back to face to face learning when the time is right.  Careful planning has resulted in procedures and equipment that will be used to help keep everyone healthy and safe.  We can’t wait to see our Webb kids back in our classrooms as soon as possible.

The Webb Staff looks forward to a fantastic 2020-21 school year and hope you are excited to be a part of it as well.  If you have any further questions, please feel free to call us here in the school office at 248-658-5900 or you can email the principal at corri.nastasi@hazelparkschools.org.
