*NEW INFORMATION FOR SCHOOL YEAR*
Delayed On Campus Instruction for Jean Massieu Academy
August 31st - Online Learning Tentative New Start Date for JMA students Pre-k - 12th grades
July 21st 2020, Tarrant County Health Officials passed an order prohibiting all public ISD's and public Charter Schools from starting ON CAMPUS INSTRUCTION FOR ANY STUDENT before September 28th.
I understand this delay of online instruction causes a hardship for many, but officials with Tarrant county feel it is in the best interest of our students and staff to begin school with Distance/Remote Learning at home for the first few weeks of the new school year.
With that said, we are currently streamlining our JMA Distance/Remote Learning Framework for students to participate in Pre-k -12th grades from home. In addition we are revising our first day of school on our current calendar from August 17th to August 31st (online only) to better support online instruction.
During the weeks of Aug. 10-31st teachers will be:
- Planning all online assignments for students to complete online at home
- Receiving additional training on Google classroom
- Planning for on campus instruction and putting into place social distancing procedures for return to campus on Monday, September 28th
- Reaching out to parents via email with additional information
- Working collaboratively with colleagues to assist parents with online distance/remote instruction and offer structured simple schedules for students while learning at home
Feel free to reach out to me via email if you have any additional questions regarding this new information I have provided. I will be updating parents with new information every Monday until August 31st so please expect weekly correspondence from me. Also, you will be receiving information regarding your child's assigned teacher at each grade level soon!!!
Thank you and stay safe.
