COVID-19 INFORMATION- School procedure reminder


Parents, this is a reminder to please keep your student home from school if they have any symptoms that might be related to Covid. This would include fever, sore throat, cough, stomach issues, headache, or loss of taste or smell. If your student is sick, please call the ASE office or attendance line. You will receive a follow up call from our call center. If your student has been in contact with a person with Covid, then they must be quarantined for 14 days before returning to school. A doctor's note will be required before your student can return to class. If your student has been tested for Covid, we must have documentation showing that your student tested negative before he/she can return to school.

Thank you for your cooperation and help in keeping our school safe and healthy!

Please see Covid attachment above.


IMPORTANT REMINDER

The Academy doors will not open for students until 7:45am. Please do not drop your student off before this time. The custodian needs ample time to sanitize the building and prepare for hand washing before students arrive.

SEL Corner!

Welcome to the SEL Corner!

We believe that students deserve a safe and inspiring school culture and future where there is empathy, respect for one another, and opportunities for all students to grow academically, behaviorally, social, and emotionally. Through the MCCSC’s Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Initiative, our students and teachers will learn and practice social and emotional skills through the use of the Second Step or School-Connect curriculum. Some examples of these skills are: self-awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making. Discussions that focus on creating a supportive learning community, developing self-awareness and self-management, building relationships and resolving conflicts, and preparing for college and the workforce are happening throughout the school year. We see application of these skills across home and school and encourage you to talk with your adolescent about what they are learning with Second Step or School-Connect.
