To ATC students and their parents,
We hope this message finds you safe and healthy.
COVID-19 has had us reevaluate everything we are doing for now and the near future. The most important thing is for everyone to be safe and healthy.
Although ATC is open and students were welcome and encouraged to be at school, it is more important that you take care of yourself and your family. Should you feel it makes better sense for your children to stay home with your family, we want them to do so. During this challenging time we wish for you to feel at ease and school should not be a concern. Be assured there will be no consequences for missed time from this point forward until further notice. ATC will be open for students until March 20, 2020 and we will be teaching, but we are looking at how to move forward with missed course content for students at a later date.
As we move forward in the coming weeks teachers will email their students to let them know their expectations as we progress through these exceptional circumstances. An email will be sent to your child about work from March 23 – 27. Additional emails will be delivered after this week for the remaining instructional days (excluding spring break, Good Friday and the scheduled PD day April 13). Please ask to see it, then review the important information with your child.
Scheduling a time for your child to do their schoolwork at home is encouraged to help them complete what is assigned. Rest assured once school resumes, we will provide resources to support students who are working away from school. We will work to ensure they are ready to transition back to in-school learning after the school suspension. If you have a question about your child's course work, you can email their teacher directly using the following email format: First.firstname.lastname@example.org. Call the school if you need help with an email address.
We will do our very best to support students, families and each other through these coming weeks. School is just one piece of this difficult situation each family is trying to sort out and we will help as best we can. Your support in your child's education is also greatly appreciated.
As updates become available, they can be found on the LRSD website (www.lrsd.net). ATC will also send out additional information if the situation changes or more information becomes available in the coming days.
We wish you and your family safety and good health. All of us look forward to getting past this challenge and returning back to normal.
