Required for new families to EACS

Eagle Academy is sponsoring “Spalding Night” Zoom trainings. We will discuss Spalding and the use of the phonogram cards and techniques to help study spelling words. Families new to Eagle Academy are required to attend the training to help support your child/ren at home. It is also open to families that need a refresher.


Please bring your phonogram cards to the Zoom. This is an interactive class so I will need the video on. Phonogram cards need to be purchased for the training for $15 / first set, $15 for additional sets of cards***. The following classes are available to choose from:


· Wed., March 17 @ 1:00 PM

· Wed., March 17 @ 6:00 PM


Please email Mrs. Timberlake ASAP to confirm the date/time that you will be attending, and she will send you the Zoom Link. timberlake_melissa@asdk12.org


***To purchase phonogram cards: Go to the ASD website, then to Zangle Parent Connect, to online payments, to phonograms. You will be able to purchase one or more sets of phonogram cards ($15 each) paying with your credit card. You will need to make arrangements to stop by the school to pick them up.


If you do not have your Zangle Parent Connect Pin and Password, please call Tamara ASAP to get it. We cannot accept cash/check.

REMINDERS

  • If your students will not be attending school for the day, please make sure you contact the front office (907) 742-3025 as soon as possible in the morning. This is true for both those who are attending in-person or EACS Online at home. This will prevent those automatic system generated phone calls or text/app alerts.

  • EACS Online students are expected to attend their daily classroom Zoom sessions (Monday-Thursday). If your student does not join the Zoom session, the will be considered absent. If they are late signing on, they will be considered tardy.

  • Per our normal protocols, students absent due to medical or emergencies are typically marked excused. Student absences due to parent choice (vacations, sporting events, etc.) are marked as unexcused. We do encourage students, if they are able, to attend their class daily zoom sessions or watch the video recordings so that they do not fall behind.

Coats, Hats, & Gloves

It's still cold outside in February and March. Please remember to send students with a warm winter coat, hats, and gloves. While we are not currently doing outdoor recess, we are still conducting fire drills and it is important that students have a coat just in case there is an emergency and we have to evacuate the building for an extended period of time. Hats and gloves can be tucked into their back packs.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ISOLATION & QUARANTINE, AND WHEN CAN I RETURN TO SCHOOL?

Isolation keeps someone who is infected with the virus away from others, including people in their home. Quarantine keeps someone who might have been exposed to the virus away from others.


These guidelines determine when ASD staff/students can return to buildings.


Isolation (Confirmed Positive and Suspected Cases)


  • If the person tests positive (with or without symptoms) stay home until 10 days have passed from the date the sample was collected.
  • if the person has symptoms, stay home for 10 days after the onset of symptoms AND at lest 24 hours with no fever without fever-reducing mediations AND symptoms are resolving.
  • If the person has symptoms and tests negative, they may return after having no fever without fever reducing medications for at least 24 hours AND symptoms are resolving. Students must provide proof of the negative test to their school nurse.
  • If the person has symptoms related to a chronic health condition, they may return to school with a Chronic Condition Symptom Release Form, signed by their medical provider.


Quarantine (Close Contacts)


  • If testing is not readily available, quarantine for a full 10 days after you were exposed. You may end your quarantine on day 11 if you do not develop symptoms, You must continue to wear a mask when around others and monitor your symptoms for a full 14 days. Self-isolate if you develop symptoms and get tested.
  • If the person lives with the confirmed positive case and they cannot isolate from one another, the 10 days will not start until the confirmed positive case completes their isolation time frame (10 days).
  • If testing is available, you may be able to end your quarantine after 7 days of quarantine, on the 8th day. You can take a COVID-19 test within 48 hours priort to when you hope to end your quarantine, You must continue to wear a mask when around others, and monitor for symptoms for the full 14 days. If you develop symptoms or your test result is positive, you must self-isolate.
  • Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, and other symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Stay away from those considered high risk.

Upon return from traveling out of state, there is currently a requirement to quarantine. The number of days is determined by what actions you take during your travel and after you return.
