Cohort AM & Cohort PM

When ASD determines that we can move to in-person instruction Eagle Academy will be utilizing a Cohort. All students, K-6 will return in two cohorts. The AM Cohort will attend in-person instruction at school Monday-Thursday in the mornings (8:30 - 11:10), everyone will be learning at home asynchronously on Fridays, and the PM Cohort will attend in-person instruction at school, Monday-Thursday in the afternoons (12:30 - 3:10).

In preparation for someday returning to In-Person instruction, we are in the process of analyzing our enrollment data. In order to create two cohorts relatively equal in size for all grade levels, we may have to veer from the traditional A-M and N-Z alphabet split.

Our main priority will be to keep students from the same family in the same cohort.

Please email Principal Carroll at carroll_deanne@asdk12.org if you:

  1. Would like to request to be in a particular cohort, with a particular student, due to carpooling considerations.
  2. If you plan to continue with EACS Online at home instead of sending your student to in-person instruction.

Please include the first and last names, as well as the grade level of each student involved in your request. We will do our best to honor requests however, we hope that you will understand if we are unable to do so.

Hello All!

I am getting the yearbook set up, and wondered if there was anyone that wanted to help work on it this year? Things are kind of up in the air on how it will all work out, but hoping to do some brainstorming with those that might want to participate.

If you are interested or have questions, send me an email or a text. jeeperjoebundy@yahoo.com or (907) 884-5008.

Thanks, Jennifer Bundy
