Emotional Intelligence in a Pandemic
Schools across the country have struggled to offer in-person learning or effective online learning programs because of this pandemic. The Fay School, tapping into its vision and commitment to developing emotional intelligence, offers this open letter to school leaders and administrators struggling with tired, frustrated, and impatient parents.
Dear Fay Family,
Remaining cognizant of the impact of COVID-19 on each of us and our educational model remains at the forefront of our anticipations, planning, and execution of Fay’s vision for your child. Balancing the competing tensions that arise from navigating the unknown remains exceedingly challenging and will likely impact us in different ways and throughout the year. The challenges will only increase in complexity as we enter the flu season.

Collaboration, synergy, and outside the box thinking absolutely depend on heightened emotional intelligence.
