We’re aware that many of you have been greatly impacted by the virus on many levels and can’t thank you enough for the unwavering support you’ve shown to us over the past 6 months! Several of the students who’ve reached out discreetly made me aware that they’d lost loved ones to COVID-19 and appreciate the approach we’re taking. This both greatly saddened me and reaffirmed my decisions throughout this process. Our struggles pale in comparison to the grief you’re experiencing, and our hearts go out to you.

I appreciate everyone’s patience, consideration, and understanding given these difficult circumstances. We look forward to seeing many of you in person very soon!
