We are headed back to our classrooms
We will resume classroom instruction on Monday, August 17, 2020. We have made this decision for several reasons:
- While COVID-19 is a serious disease for the elderly and infirmed, according to the CDC, school-age children are at very low risk of experiencing serious illness from COVID-19.
- Schools which have re-opened in Europe are experiencing no increase in COVID-19 infection rates.
- Data is emerging that children are not commonly transmitters of COVID-19.
- The American Academy of Pediatrics "strongly advocates that all policy considerations for the coming school year should start with a goal of having students physically present in school."
- Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has set a clear direction to open Georgia schools and businesses as soon as possible.
A U.S. Congressman has observed that children have the lowest risk, but have paid the highest price, relative to COVID-19. We agree. It is time to get our students back in the classroom.
If you are an Atlanta area parent facing uncertainty in the Fall of 2020, please contact us. We currently have Fall openings for students who will be in Kindergarten through 4th grade.
As student and staff safety are always our top priority, when we re-open, we will implement evidence-based COVID-19 sanitation and safety practices.
