Yes, attendance will be taken every day.

All sessions are recorded and uploaded to Google Classroom/Class Dojo. If a child is unable to join a live session course, they should view the recording within 8 days and complete any assigned activities. An email should be sent to the respective teacher by the end of the day, letting them know the video has been watched and assignments have been completed in order to be counted “present” for the school day.

You should expect to receive communication from your child’s teacher every day. That email will include the following day’s Zoom links, materials needed, and any other important information you may need to arrange/plan out your day. Please monitor your child’s attendance and academic data on a daily basis, you may do so through Class Dojo (Preschool- Grade 3) and Google Classroom (4-10).

To help our students and faculty remain healthy, the company which carries out cleaning services in our facility has implemented the following procedures to prevent the spread of germs. We schedule a member of cleaning staff to disinfect the entire campus with an electrostatic sprayer, paying particular attention to the indoor sport areas. Additionally, each evening the cleaning company:

  • Disinfects all doorknobs including a 12-inch radius around all classroom, bathroom, and exit doors
  • Disinfects all stair railings
  • Door knobs and countertops are cleaned throughout the day with bleach disinfectant wipes
  • Disinfects every student chair and desk throughout campus
  • Disinfects the indoor sport area, paying special attention due to a higher risk of saliva exposure in the air
  • Pays particular attention to the Pre-School, Pre-K, and Elementary sections, in locations where students are more frequently on the ground and at tables.

To ensure the health and safety of our students and faculty, and abide by given
guidelines, we must always maintain 6ft distance within the classroom. This cannot be
done with all students present at the same time in the classrooms.
