Hybrid Virtual Learning Extended
January 18th - January 21st
January 14, 2022
Dear Trix Academy Families,
I want to first thank all of our scholars, parents and teachers for a great week of Hybrid Learning. Attendance was great and scholars were logged in and engaged in the learning process.
As you know we are working diligently and watching the positivity rate of Wayne County. Even though the positivity rate is still in the low 30’s, Trix Academy has been able to get through the week with only 1 positive staff case. Scholars and staff have worked hard this week in following our Covid mitigations and the week was a success.
In an abundance of caution, we are going to extend our Hybrid Learning Model for another week. Scholars will be Hybrid from Tuesday, January 18 - Friday, January 21, 2022. MLK Day will be recognized on January 17th and school will NOT be in session.
In person learning will resume on January 24, 2022. This is a hard date! We do understand every concern and we are taking every precaution necessary to ensure the health and safety of our scholars and staff. We also understand the importance of all scholars being in the building engaging in learning with their teacher face to face. Scholars need that face to face interaction with their teachers and with each other. We understand our children are 5-14 years of age and their social and emotional wellbeing is important as well. They need the social interaction of their school community. That is why I am asking parents to please make sure your scholar is back and ready to learn on January 24th!! We miss them and they miss us!
A negative Covid Test is NOT required to return on January 24th, however, if you would like to have your scholar tested below are some free testing sites in this area:
Center for Covid Testing just add your zip code for the closet testing center.
If you are interested in getting your scholar vaccinated please see the vaccination centers in the area below:
We are going to continue to support our at home scholars with our supplemental food program. Food distribution will take place on Wednesday, January 19th from 1pm-3pm. Please contact the school prior so we can have your box ready. All food bundles include both breakfast and lunch for five days.
Lastly, middle school parents please be on the lookout for a separate email outlining NWEA Testing for next week and celebrations.
Trix Academy will continue to keep families in our thoughts. We will continue to provide support in various ways as we try to overcome the challenges of this pandemic together. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Please call Trix Academy if you have any questions or concerns at 313.426.1020.
