“I want to thank our staff for their diligence and commitment to keeping our students safe. I would like to thank our students for their assistance and their cooperation. Finally, I want to thank our families for your patience and understanding,” Princeton Middle School Principal Jason Burr wrote in an email to parents. “We anticipate that we will be back in the building soon.”
