I have tried many ways to write this post, but all of my words keep coming back to one phrase:

Welcome home.

I cannot express my relief and gratitude that you are all home and you are, for the most part, safe and well. I know you have gone through much pain and suffering and I want to let you all know that whatever you need in the way of healing, I hope you can find it here. If not here, then we can find whatever it is you need among our connections. If you need help - when you need help - there are options.

If anything, the events of the past month have proven that we are indeed a family. All of us. A family that supports each other, helps each other, regardless of circumstances or differences or history. We will need that, in the coming days as we work to move on, to recover from the hurts we have suffered. Please, hold onto that.

***

Now for the practicalities. Primarily, for those with families and commitments needing an explanation for your absence… for the past month the mansion has been under quarantine for a suspected case of Valley River Fever. Fortunately that turned out to be a false alarm and business will resume for the school and the Institute as per normal.

For the students, who missed their finals; your grades for the year will be determined from the year's work, rather than a final exam. There will be no need for summer classes, unless you were previously scheduled for them.

For the seniors, who also missed graduation, we will be holding a graduation ceremony mid-summer, to allow your family and friends to celebrate your completion of high school. Once we have had time to make the arrangements, an announcement will be made.

The kitchen has been completely and fully restocked with pre-made and ready to eat foods as well as the usual supplies. The hot water furnace is also primed and ready to handle the inevitable increase in shower use. And the laundry fairy may have been by and provided a change of linens to all of the beds.

Rest. Recover. Take comfort in your friends and your family. It is so good to have you all back.

Charles.
