SCHOOL CLOSURE SPECIAL EDITION: March 16, 2020
Eagle Academy encourages academic excellence by integrating proven instructional methods with a challenging curriculum and high expectations.This combination provides every child with the foundation needed to achieve proficiency of Eagle Academy’s performance standards at each instructional level.
SCHOOL CLOSURE NEEDS ASSESSMENT
This week Tuesday & Wednesday, your child's teacher will be contacting you (via phone) to conduct a survey (needs assessment) to help us prepare for the possibility of homebound instruction should the school closure last beyond March 27th.
If you have multiple students enrolled at Eagle Academy you can expect only one phone call. However, if you have students enrolled at multiple schools, please be aware that you will be receiving calls from teachers at each school.
We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation while we work through planning for continued instruction.

We will make every effort to gather those items and have them ready for you to pick up at the front door.

Information Regarding the Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV)
To help safe guard our students, staff and families here at EACS, we are carefully following the guidelines put in place by ASD, the CDC and WHO for the Coronavirus.
The Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is a new respiratory virus that was first identified in Wuhan, China. Current symptoms reported for patients with 2019-nCoV have included a mild to severe respiratory illness with a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing.
Information about the Coronavirus is constantly being updated as new information emerges. The latest information from the US Department of Education COVID-19 can be found here.
Dr. Chandler, of the Anchorage Department of Health and State of Alaska Epidemiology Department, explained during his last interview that gathering information yourself is also important. He strongly recommended using websites with known facts about this virus which include: the CDC and World Health Organization. (click on the underlined websites) Dr. Chandler advises against getting information from social media. We also suggest that you monitor the ASD website frequently during spring break for updates relating to school operations.
