I want to take this opportunity to thank you for all that you have done to support our school in its endeavors to accomplish our mission. Your services as a volunteer, membership in the PTO, and attendance at parent conferences and our open house are all greatly appreciated.
As the principal of your child's school and the administrative representative of your school district, state, and national education system, I also want to offer my sincerest apologies. We are failing to achieve our mission, and your child's future is in jeopardy . . .
I won't comment at this point, but I'd be interested in your responses to it.
