Lunch Bunch & Other Changes

Please make note of these changes to the master schedule at Skagit Academy, beginning Monday, October 19.

Lunch Bunch link:

Come join a Skagit Academy teacher and other SA students for lunchtime Monday - Thursday, 12:00 - 12:30pm.

AC/PREP Parent Connection NEW TIME: Tuesdays at 3:00pm (instead of on Fridays). Access Katrina Johnston's link for this session.

CHOICE BOARD Show & Tell NEW TIME (one session only): Fridays at 10:00am for K-8 students enrolled in Integrated Electives (instead of 3 sessions at 9:00am, 10:00am and 11:00am on Fridays). Come show off your completed projects from the choice board activities.

HOT CHOCOLATE CHAT NEW TIME: Mondays at 11:00am for students grades 5+ with Mrs. McGehee [this will begin Monday, October 26] (instead of the 2 morning sessions on Fridays). Bring your hot chocolate, tea or coffee and chat with others.

No Change to 5-12 Advisory Time - Tuesday at 2:00 PM

As a result of feedback from our parent meeting, we wanted to reach out and find out if changing the Tuesday 5-12 advising time to Monday would be helpful for scheduling. Based on our survey, we will keep it on Tuesdays at 2:00 PM (51 votes, 74.5% for Tuesday).

This weekly advising time replaces our 'Flex' time that we normally have at school (20 minutes per school day). Students will be having conversations with advisors about monthly progress, doing academic planning, and covering other important topics. Thanks for your feedback!

What is the process for ordering remote class materials?

  • Look at the Approved Curriculum and Approved Vendor tabs under Resources tab (in the left blue bar) , and choose what you would like to order.
  • Contact your Advisor to fill out an RPR (Remote Purchase Request)
  • The Advisor submits the completed RPR to Roycie (Curriculum coordinator), and she will check inventory for supplies then order what the school does not already have in stock.
  • Roycie submits the RPR to Denise (Purchaser).
  • A district P.O. (Purchase Order) is created.
  • The materials are ordered.
  • When the order is received, Roycie will inventory the items and notify you by email when they are received.
  • [NOTE: Sometimes your order will come in more than one package. You will be notified each time a part of your order is received. You do not need to pick up the supplies until the school has received all your items, or you are free to pick them up in increments. You choose.]


* You will receive your materials in approximately 4 weeks.

* You can make an appointment with your advisor to choose supplies from inventory to get you by while you are waiting for your materials.

* Expect materials to be on backorder. (It is presently a common occurrence.)

* There are often shipping delays due to COVID.

* We are using a new inventory system, so the Library function is WINGS is no longer accurate or available.

Zoom Meeting Notes: Waiting Room and Class Arrival

Class Arrival at Zoom Meetings:

*Students, please try to arrive at Zoom meetings on time so you don't miss any instruction.

Waiting Room Notes:

*Teachers will move students from the waiting room until the classroom as soon as they can.

*There may be occasions when students are in the waiting room for a longer period of time.

1. If a students are early for class, they will not be let into the room until class starts.

2. If a student arrives late to a class, the teacher will move the student from the waiting room whenever they can pause the lesson (should only be a few minutes).

3. If teachers have asked the class to go to the waiting room so they can have individual check-ins with students (during advising meetings for Academy 5-12, to get help, to discuss a missing assignment, etc.), students will wait until the teacher is ready for the next appointment.
