Dear Academy Families:
In planning our school year to come, the safety of our students, teachers, and families continues to be our foremost consideration. Given the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic in our area, we believe it is prudent to push the start date of our school year back to Thursday, August 27, 2020.
As a result of this change, we have revised the school calendar (click here to download). The revised calendar meets all of our legal requirements for number of school days and hours, and we are still able to complete the year before the Memorial Day holiday weekend in the spring of 2021.
Because of the change in start date, we have set a later date for your family’s decision regarding On-Campus or E-Learning for the first four weeks of the school year. We will ask for your binding choice by Monday, August 10. Knowing how many students are in each group will greatly facilitate our teachers’ planning.
Please watch for continued communications from me and from your Division Directors as we make our way through the days and weeks to come.
Thank you for choosing Academy at the Lakes. Together, we will continue to provide for our children even in the face of the historic challenges our nation, our state, and our area are experiencing.
Head of School
