Hi! I’m not sure if it is ok to reply back to this email; however, I want to express my gratitude to EIPS for all of the amazing work you are doing. No one could foresee this crisis and you have been very adaptive, innovative and informative; you have been a steady influence on your EIPS students and families. Thank you!

Dear Mrs. Shield, Thank you for all of the fun activities you provided for the kids to help keep them connected! Your love and passion for teaching is incredible and we are so sad to see Angus' time in your classroom shortened as he truly loved being there each day. We know you are working hard to transition to distance learning and so appreciate all that you do!

Stay well and take care!
I just wanted to say a huge shoutout to all the amazing teachers, admin, EAs, support staff, volunteers, secretaries, janitors, and parents I have had the opportunity to work alongside the past couple weeks as we prepare for online learning. I couldn't ask for a better team! I love and miss our EPE Grizzlies family so much. I hope everyone, including everyone in this amazing district, has a fantastic Springbreak this week!

I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate you are doing during this COVID-19 pandemic – it is such a unique time where you need to make so many unique decisions and work very long hours I’m sure. Please know we are praying wisdom for you and we are confident you are doing whatever you can do in the best interests of our students.

Hi Mr. Liguori,
Just a quick note to say thank-you for all you are doing along with the entire EIPS staff. This last week has undoubtedly been one of the most challenging you have all faced in your roles. Please know that as a parent I appreciate all the work that has been done to prepare for this unexpected and unprecedented transition.
Our Principal at Ecole Parc Elementaire, M. Verhoeff, has been extremely responsive and incredibly positive through this entire process. His leadership for staff, students and parents is to be commended. He has made every effort possible to connect with the students in encourage the staff to do the same, in very meaningful ways.
While times are challenging, know that many are standing behind you all with nothing but support and appreciation for all the work that has happened and will continue in the coming months.
I hope you are able to find some time to connect with your family this weekend. Have a good day.
