I hesitate to wonder aloud whether the world can get any more complicated. As if the COVID-19 pandemic and social protests weren’t enough, last week we had to deal with a dust storm from the Sahara Desert! It seems clear that no one can predict how matters will stand next week let alone in August.
At present, we at Eaton academy are planning to operate the classes and sessions of all of our programs in person for the 2020-21 school year. We have created a detailed first draft of the procedures and protocols we will have in place when school starts. A copy of that plan is included with this blog post. We also produced a brief video outlining points of the plan.
Everyone at Eaton Academy is concerned about the health and well-being of our students, our staff, and their families. If the world spins the wrong way and an “in-person” approach becomes inappropriate, we will quickly pivot to the online approach that served our community so well from March through May.
We miss having our students here with us on campus. Watching them smile and laugh as they learn important new facts and ideas brings joy to our hearts. Seeing young people grow and become self-aware and self-confident makes all of our planning and hard work worthwhile!
Please take a moment to review the COVID-19 Plan and to watch the video. Emails with more specific and updated information will be sent to families after the middle of July.
Whether the approach is in-person or online, we will be here for the children. We encourage everyone in our community to spread the good news and to tell their friends and family about Eaton Academy. In today’s world more than ever, Eaton Academy is the best answer to students’ educational, social, emotional, and health needs!
