Campus Reopening March 22
 
Message from the Superintendent Alyssa Lynch
Greetings!
 
At long last, we can say "welcome back!" I am thrilled to share the reopening of both SVCTE and SVAE on March 22 in hybrid-learning models. 
 
We could not have imagined back in March 2020
when we closed that we would not be able to return until the following March! Our programs prepare students for success in college and careers by providing students with rigorous instruction and industry skills that lead to certifications. This is why collectively we do the work we do at MetroED. Students thrive with the combination of hands-on and theory instruction that we provide.
 
Our teachers have been performing heroic work as they engage, instruct, and inspire students through remote platforms far from ideal. They have my gratitude, respect, and admiration. It is uplifting to know we will soon be learning together again. 
 
As we continue to navigate the extraordinary human impact of COVID-19, everyone at MetroED wants to assure you we have devoted our resources to promote safety for students and employees. We have worked hard to prepare to welcome students back to campus. 
 
I appreciate your ongoing commitment to education and learning and ensuring that equity is at the center of that commitment. Students and educators across the country need as much support as we can continue to provide. I am ever grateful to everyone in our MetroED community for your diligence in protecting our community's health. 
 
Please stay safe and get vaccinated when it's your turn.
 
 
Best Wishes,
