COVID-19: School Update
The rising COVID-19 infections have lead to schools closing once again. We will begin on Monday, August 17th. with in-person classes for Jr. & Sr. High School 4 days/week Monday through Thursday 9:30AM-2:00PM. Daily online independent studies available. We are using Google Classroom and Hangouts for remote learning and in preparation for future disruptions. PreK-Kindergarten and Elementary Grades 1-6 will meet in person 5 days/week Monday - Friday 9:00AM-3:00PM.
The Dept. of Education Fall 2020 Guidelines recommend student desks be spaced 6' apart for social distancing and students should wear a mask when in groups. Many schools will remain closed until the Spring Semester. Apprende will maintain 4 days of in-school Jr. & Sr. High School classes as long as safety concerns are met. We will be offering a micro-class version online to those interested.
***NEW PROGRAM for students doing "remote learning" with other schools!
These are unusual times and will definitely have a long term affect on us all but most hard hit will be the students unable to attend school. Our goal at this time is to reassure students that they're safe and secure at Apprende and will be given the assistance they need to move their education forward.
Please use all the recommend safety precautions. Students...stay home if you or any family member feels sick or has a fever. Let us know if you are in self-quarantine. You can be highly contagious for about 4-5 days before any symptoms appear. Remember that hard surfaces can be contaminated for up to 72 hrs. and soft surfaces (cardboard, paper, etc.) for several hours. We are regularly disinfecting everything possible and students are reminded to regularly wash their hands and practice social distancing.
We will all persevere as long as we work together and are vigilant about prevention. If details change we will notify you promptly.
