On August 3, 2020, the Board of Directors and Director, Andy Wright, announced our school opening plan for 2020-2021. For the health and safety of our EAGLE School community, we opened the 2020-21 school year in distant-learning mode.
During the second semester, we are cautiously bringing students in for classes in the building part-time in a phased approach. Our kindergarten students started on Monday, January 25th, with 4 mornings a week. We anticipate welcoming the 1st and 2nd graders for part time in school beginning Monday, March 8th. The 3rd through 8th graders will be returning into our building in the following weeks with reduced class sizes and a limited schedule to ensure distancing requirements. Students may opt to remain fully distant for the remainder of the school year.
Since the first week of school and continuing weekly until June, we enjoy optional outdoors Unit Community Time. During these sessions, students gather — in groups of 12 or less, for two hours once each week — to get some exercise, guided by our PE teachers, and some much-needed social connection time with their classmates. These social times are also helpful for exchanging materials between teachers and families.
