Albert Einstein Academy SV Campus
August Newsletter 2022
Dear Families, Friends and Community,
It's great to be back for our second season together! I hope that each of you were able to take a little time to soak up some sun and fun this summer.
Big strides were made last year with respect to building a strong school culture. This year we will continue to do the work needed to grow a healthy and active Einstein Parent Organization (EPO), establish new opportunities for parent and family engagement, design accurate strategies and response systems in complete support of the social and emotional well being of our students and give voice to the acceptance of others within a safe and civil learning environment for all members of the school community. In addition, every student will once again participate in the AEA Community Service Program. You can find additional information about the program on page nine (9) of the AEALAS of Ohio Student/Parent Handbook.
Team AEA is excited and ready to roll! We are looking forward to meeting the students on Wednesday, August 24. Please take a moment to preview our outstanding team of teachers and support staff as we head into the 2022-23 school year.

Traffic Safety: AM Drop-Off & PM Pick-Up
Please know that the small visitor lot is not to be used for student drop-off/pick-up. The parking spaces will be coned off this year between 7:20-8:20am and 2:20-3:20pm. The larger side lot has plenty of available parking spaces that face the sidewalk that leads to the main entrance of the building.
There will be additional staff members outside this year to support this process. We experienced many close calls and several actual incidents last school year. We can't sit back and ignore this important component of a safe and healthy school campus.
Ultimately, the success of this process depends on you. Your cooperation and support is greatly appreciated!
