    PHASE 2 - RE-OPENING PLAN

    Dear Parents and Guardians, Western Academy will begin our phased in approach for student re-entry to school beginning on Thursday, September 17th. Based on the parent responses to the intent survey, students will be allowed to return to campus for in-classroom instruction according to the timeline below. Thursday, 9/17 – Grades K/1/3/4/6 will start live in the school. All other grades (2/5/7/8) remain on distance learning at this time. Students remaining on distance learning are required to log in to their Google Classrooms each day to meet with their teachers during their scheduled class times. Students returning to campus for in-classroom instruction must wear a face mask at all times throughout the day except while eating breakfast or lunch in the café or while outside at PE. On Thursday 9/17 and Friday 9/18 we will practice the drop off procedures, hallway transitions, lunch times, dismissal procedures, and aftercare procedures with the new grades on campus. We will run the regular schedule with the students in grades K/1/3/4/6 on campus for two weeks and make any necessary adjustments as needed. Beginning on 9/17, Morning care (6:45am-7:45am) and After care (2:30pm-4:00pm/6:00pm) services will provided for students in grades K/1/3/4/6 returning to campus that have been pre-registered. Thursday, 10/1 - Grades 2/5/7 will start live in the school. 8th grade will remain on distance learning at this time. Students remaining on distance learning are required to log in to their Google Classrooms each day to meet with their teachers during their scheduled class times. Thursday, 10/15 – Grade 8 will start live in the school. Students remaining on distance learning are required to log in to their Google Classrooms each day to meet with their teachers during their scheduled class times. I am eagerly looking forward to the return of students to campus starting on 9/17 and I thank you in advance for your cooperation and support. Sincerely, Mrs. Manriquez

    Digital Access Survey

    Western Academy Charter School will be starting the 2020-2021 school year on Monday, August 31, 2020 with remote learning from home for all students in kindergarten through 8th grade. We realize that some students may not currently have access to a tech device for live lessons, online textbooks, online resources, and digital lessons which will be delivered daily through Google Classroom. In order for each student to fully participate and attend classes each and every day as required, they must have access to their own individual laptop or computer with a camera and microphone with internet access each school day, Monday - Friday from 8:00 AM to 2:45 PM. If your child or children will NOT have their own individual device, access to this type of device with a camera, or had issues with internet access, please complete this survey by WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 13, 2020 so the school can distribute them during the pickup dates scheduled from 8/17/20 to 08/24/20 (dates scheduled by last name). You MUST complete a separate survey for each individual student that will require a device. Survey Link: forms.gle/QCQDEi8dxMCo8ddv9
