Week of March 29-April 2, 2021
Good morning Explorers,
We are back in action! I hope that you had a good Spring Break! The weather feels like it is turning warmer and hopefully the sun will be shining on us as we return back to school.
Given the Senate Bill 220 requirements and guidance from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, students who wish to move in or out Virtual Academy for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year will have the option of doing so.
1.) If you desire a change FROM Virtual Academy to FACE TO FACE instruction beginning April 5th. Please know that if these changes are granted they will most likely come with a teacher change for the remainder of the school year.
2.) If you desire a change FROM FACE TO FACE instruction to Virtual Academy for the remainder of the school year. Please know that if these changes are granted they will most likely come with a teacher change for the remainder of the school year.
All Parents: Please be aware that upon student entry on April 5th the school will not operate with 3 or 6 feet of social distancing in classrooms. Classroom student numbers will be based on parent requests for in person learning. At this time, during meal times students will be required to be 6 feet apart, not talk during the time that masks are removed for eating, and will not be permitted to move about the eating location for the meal period in order to adhere to the Eating and Meal Time Guidelines.
Finally, ALL safety and health protocols will be expected and reinforced for face to face learning. This means that ALL students will need to wear masks all day unless given an outdoor mask break by school staff.
