What a group of rockstars! The KIPP Durham College Prep team crushed last week & were super jazzed about how behaviors were configured and aligned to core values: Knowledge, Creativity, Determination, and Pride!

If your child is failing at this school, you will find out when report cards come to you. The lack of communication is inexplicable. The teacher just told me basically she has over 100 students, and it's not her responsibility to let me know anything she said; I should look at the paychecks. Her attitude was so uncaring, and as a parent whose child is failing, that is unacceptable.

Mr. Lofstedt, what is the most joyful part of your job?

The most joyful part of my day is welcoming cubs to school as they get off the bus. Each day is a fresh start and we all have the opportunity to learn and grow more than the day before.

Who inspires you?

Our teachers and families inspire me to do better every single day. Their persistence, optimism and love reminds me why this work is so important and I am grateful to be by their sides.

Why do you do this work?

I decided that I wanted to be a primary school teacher because I love working with cubs as they are learning the foundations of math and reading as well as learning how to solve problems independently.

What are you passionate about?

Non-school related, my dog, Ava. There is not a day when I do not bring up my dog to my cubs. I make sure to bring her up in math problems, stories that we read throughout the day and if I have a new picture of her, then I am definitely sharing it with cubs during transition times or in the cafeteria. I am also passionate about supporting teachers. I know that cubs are more successful when their teachers are supported and cared for.

Mrs. McWhite, what is your secret talent?
I am raising twin girls that are 3 years old during a pandemic! Ha! I think moms have so many secret talents; I'm finding the list is expanding as we navigate this "new normal!"

What is the most joyful part of your job?
The most joyful part of my job is seeing students win. Every time a student masters a concept, earns acceptance to college, nails a solo, earns Honor Roll/Principal's List for the first time - the list goes on. I get excited too. It's amazing to see them succeed and celebrate that success alongside them.

What are you passionate about?
I am most passionate about young, black women becoming unified and realizing their full potential. I love that women are such powerful forces - I want all young women to see that in themselves and in others.

Why do you do this work?
I feel a personal responsibility to do my part in providing students who look like me access to a high quality education. The challenges our students face are systemic and I have always believed that education is the gateway to unlocking a more promising future. A future that defies demography and has the power to stretch beyond stereotypes. I'll keep committing to that cause because I believe in it to my core.

Mr. Allen, If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
If I could be any animal I would be a Lion. Lions represent courage, authority and order. Lions are also family oriented and selfless. Additionally, the lionesses, like in my culture, are the true strength and agents of cohesiveness that keep the family thriving.

Mr. Allen, who inspires you?
Charlie Allen, Joseph Green, Cornell West, Dr. Umar Johnson, Dr. Doretha Allen, James Baldwin, Strong Black Brothers and Sistas all over the world.

Mr. Allen, what is your favorite book?
Babylon to Timbuktu by Rudolph R. Windsor

Mr. Allen, why is education important?
Education is important because it serves as a catalyst for opportunity. While much of the world struggles to embrace diversity, education continues to be the vehicle that consistently affords a marginalized people opportunities that otherwise may not have been offered.

Dear KIPP ENC Families,

We hope this message finds you and your family healthy and well. When we last communicated with you in mid-September, we promised to return to you prior to October 15 to share our decision on reopening school. We write today to communicate that decision to all of you.

After careful consideration of all the family survey data we have complied over the past two weeks, after close examination of the rate of COVID transmission around the State of North Carolina, and given the fact that we are soon to head into cold and flu seasons, we have decided to remain fully remote through at least Quarter 2, which ends on January 29, 2021.

We know from your surveys that news of this decision will be welcomed by the vast majority of you, as so many of you continue to be concerned about the state of transmission and illness around our region, state, and country. But for others, we know this decision will be a disappointment.

Please know, however, that we were and will always be guided in our decision making by what is best for the health and safety of your children and our staff. This is one of the most difficult decisions we have had to make to date, as it deals with half a year of learning for our Pride. Make no mistake: We want our students and their teachers back in our school buildings, but we will never risk their health to make that happen. We love them, their families, and the staff too much to do otherwise.

We will continue to be in close contact with each of you as we continue with remote instruction. We are grateful for all that you have done to support your children in their instruction this year. We are humbled to be your partner in this process.

Please reach out to your child’s school with any questions or issues you might have. Our Operations and Instructional teams continue to stand ready to help marshal the resources your family needs to help support the learning of all our students daily.

We are grateful for all of your support, partnership, and, above all else, love for our KIPP ENC community.

Queridas familias KIPP ENC,

Esperamos que este mensaje los encuentre a usted y a su familia sanos y bien. Cuando nos comunicamos con usted por última vez a mediados de septiembre, le prometimos volver antes del 15 de octubre para compartir nuestra decisión sobre la reapertura de la escuela. Escribimos hoy para comunicarle esa decisión a todos ustedes.

Después de una cuidadosa consideración de todos los datos de la encuesta familiar que hemos realizado durante las últimas dos semanas, después de un examen minucioso de la tasa de transmisión de COVID en todo el estado de Carolina del Norte, y dado que pronto nos dirigiremos a las temporadas de resfriados y gripe, hemos decidido permanecer ofreciendo r completamente la enseñanza a distancia durante al menos el segundo trimestre, que finaliza el 29 de enero de 2021.

Por sus encuestas, sabemos que la gran mayoría de ustedes recibirán con agrado la noticia de esta decisión, ya que muchos de ustedes continúan preocupados por el estado de transmisión y enfermedad en nuestra región, estado y país. Pero para otros, sabemos que esta decisión será una decepción.

Por favor, sepa que siempre nos guiamos y siempre nos guiaremos en nuestra toma de decisiones por lo que es mejor para la salud y seguridad de sus hijos y nuestro personal. Esta es una de las decisiones más difíciles que hemos tenido que tomar hasta la fecha, ya que se trata de medio año de aprendizaje para nuestro orgullo. No se equivoquen: queremos que nuestros estudiantes y sus maestros regresen a nuestros edificios escolares, pero nunca arriesgaremos su salud para que eso suceda. Los amamos demasiado a ellos, a sus familias y al personal como para hacer lo contrario.

Nosotros continuaremos en contacto bien cercano con cada uno de ustedes mientras continuamos con la instrucción a distancia. Estamos agradecidos por todo lo que ha hecho para apoyar a sus hijos en su instrucción este año. Nos sentimos honrados de ser su socio en este proceso.

Por favor, comuníquese con la escuela de su hijo para cualquier pregunta o problema que pueda tener. Nuestros equipos de operaciones e instrucción continúan listos para ayudar a organizar los recursos que su familia necesita para ayudar a apoyar el aprendizaje de todos nuestros estudiantes a diario.

Estamos agradecidos por todo su apoyo, asociación y, sobre todo, amor por nuestra comunidad KIPP ENC.
