Teacher writes heartwarming parting letter for students

  • A teacher wrote a touching letter for her students so she can say goodbye properly to them after COVID-19 forced schools to close down early
  • She typed a generic letter for her 100 students and then wrote a personal note for all of them
  • The teacher told her students how much she appreciates and loves them and that knowing that she won’t get to see them all as a class again made her sad

As part of the measures taken by the government to prevent the spread of COVID-19, a school in Kansas was also cancelled early.

When she heard the news, Victoria Bay, a middle school teacher, was heartbroken. She said that just thinking that she won’t get to see her students together as a class again makes her sad.

“We are on spring break so when I left my kids, I told them I would miss them this week and I would see them soon. Knowing that they would never get to be in my classroom and be my students again was honestly devastating and heartbreaking,” Bay told Good Morning America.

In order to express her love and appreciation for her 100 students, she wrote them a generic typewritten letter along with a personal note for each of them.

In the letter, she expressed her appreciation for all the memories that they shared throughout the school year.

“Y’all were the reason my days were filled with smiles and laughter. I am so grateful to be your teacher and I loved creating fun and engaging experiences for us to enjoy together,” Bay wrote. “I am blessed to know you all as students and people. You will always hold a special place in my heart.”

She also expressed excitement in seeing them all at the end of this trial.

“It’s difficult to know what the future holds, so please remember that before anything else, I love and care about you,” she added. “I look forward to being with you again and you are always in my heart, thoughts, and prayers.”
