2/14/21 - Preparing for Hybrid!
Hello Families! In 2 weeks we will begin our change to the hybrid schedule. Please know that these two weeks are just as important as what is to come. Scholars need to remain consistent with attendance and work completion no matter what model we are using. We are putting in place a new hybrid schedule that is allowing for the least amount of change for everyone.
Please remember that teachers will have dual roles with this transition so some variations will take place. We guarantee that your scholar will receive just as much education, it simply will look just a little different. We thank you so much for your patience and adaptability during this transition. Schedules will be sent out soon but again please note the below changes.
Please be aware of 3 things, prior to this date:
1. We truly need you to complete the survey so we can have an accurate count on who wants to attend class in-person or remain virtual. A+AA Scholar Learning Declaration Survey
We are making some changes to the hybrid scheduling:
2. 8th grade ONLY will attend Mondays and Tuesdays
7th grade ONLY will attend Thursdays and Fridays.
This change is necessary so that there is less interruption to your scholars academic schedule.
3. We will NOT be using the last schedule created. We will send out the new hybrid schedule soon. We promise our goal is to help remain as consistent as possible and these changes will make the transition much easier for every scholar.
PLEASE NOTE - No changes to the schedule will be made prior to March 1st. Keep moving along with the schedule we have been using since August. Thank you!
LET'S CELEBRATE!!!!! We have an all-call system again! We will be able to give you real-time text updates. We don't want to lose anyone due to miss communication. We know your time is valuable and confusions interrupt too much in our lives.

Teachers are also available outside of class time to work with scholars. Please take advantage of this!
