Alta Mesa Academic Contingency Plan during school closure.
March 16 - March 30
Dear Knights Families:
This morning our staff and teachers met to solidify our academic contingency plan and determine how we could make every effort to provide continued learning opportunities for our students during this time of uncertainty.
Beginning tomorrow our teachers will post a daily learning activity in core subject areas that students can complete from home. The activities for the day will be posted each morning at 9am. Please make sure you read all threads posted that day so that your child doesn’t miss any activities. Teachers will have virtual classroom hours from 9am-12pm Monday- Friday where they will be available via Dojo messenger and e-mail to answer any learning questions parents or students have.
Spring conferences will still occur telephonically. Even if you did not schedule a conference you should still receive a call from your child’s teacher. Please note that conference calls will most likely come from blocked numbers. Please make sure you answer this call so that you may communicate with your child’s teacher to discuss his / her current strengths and areas of needed improvement, and how you can best continue to support your child at home.
We understand there are a lot of questions and concerns regarding our upcoming Catalina trip and other school events. It is still too soon to determine if these things will need to be postponed, and our leadership team will make decisions as quickly and efficiently as we can.
Please know that we are closely monitoring the global spread of COVID-19 and have been assiduously following prevention measures as outlined by public health officials. We will remain committed to providing a safe environment for all Knights stakeholders and our community. We will reopen our school once it is safe to do so.
We are also including valuable links so that you may stay informed on COVID-19. We respectfully request that you stay connected to our website, social media sites, and Dojo for important and updates and information as it becomes available.
We are grateful for your patience and understanding as we continue to work through this challenging time together.
