Principal's Message

Welcome back to all of the students, families, community members and business partners to Firestone Community Learning Center.  We are preparing to open our doors for incoming students in grades 9 through 12 for in person learning for the 2021-2022 school year. There has already been an increase of excitement within the building as students returned for marching band and athletics. 

Although many are yearning to return to a normal school year, we know that this school year will not return to what was previously considered normal.  All students, staff and visitors will be required to wear masks while inside the building. Visitors to the building are still limited to family members who have appointments with school staff or who are attending athletics with an electronic ticket and our pre-approved CCAA business partners. We will continue to social distance within the building using 3 feet to the extent possible in all classrooms, LRC and cafeteria. Everyone is encouraged to frequently wash their hands and use hand sanitizer.

Returning to normal may be difficult and may not be possible.  It may be that we must continue to grow to be better than normal this school year.  We have all learned so much about how to better meet the needs of our students over the past year and a half.  We have better access to technology, better systems for academic and learner support and better understand the difficulties everyone can face day to day. These are all things we can no longer ignore and must continue to support and provide access to opportunities for each and every student. 

The staff and I are ready to begin working with the students to accelerate their learning and create a sense of belonging to our academies. We recognize we must create a better than normal environment which will enhance a collective sense of trust and understanding of the goals each student sets for themselves. 

Thank you for sharing your students with us. It is a genuine delight and honor to have these students at Firestone.  Please feel free to reach out with any hopes, questions or concerns.

Mrs. Jessica Farrell
