Communications for Families and Students

November 9, 2020


Dear PSAS families and staff, We are grateful for your continued patience and flexibility as we navigate the impacts of Covid on our schools. As of today, Monday, November 9, we are experiencing a high level of absences among both staff and students. These absences, involving a mix of mandatory and non-mandatory quarantines, currently represent a small number of verified positive cases, but those with which we are aware are a significant concern. Further, the overall number of absences has made it somewhat impractical for PSAS to offer in-person learning for the next few weeks. Therefore, in order to be responsible to our staff and families, and to maintain a continuity of learning, we have made the difficult decision to go to remote learning until Monday, November 30, our goal date to return. Fulton Heights Middle school, will begin Wednesday, November 11 as previously scheduled. Thanksgiving break will remain the same from Monday, November 23 - Friday, November 27. To facilitate this change, we will have a two-day staff planning transition this Tuesday and Wednesday. Students will not attend class with the exception of completing current assignments already provided by their teachers. Starting Thursday, November 12, and through the end of Thanksgiving weekend, PSAS will operate fully under our remote learning protocols. Your individual school and teacher may contact you with additional details prior to the advent of remote learning on Thursday. During the course of our remote learning period, we will remain open for communications and to facilitate any ministerial items such as collecting personal items at our campuses. This is a difficult decision, and we are so very thankful that you have been supportive of PSAS throughout this time. We hope to stay in frequent contact to update all families and staff as this process unfolds. Jones Campus Remote from 11/12 - 11/20 Fulton Heights K-5 Remote from 11/12 - 11/20 Fulton Heights Middle School Remote from 11/11 - 11/20 PSAS Homeschool Remote from 11/12 - 11/20 PSAS e-Learning Continue as normal ALL PSAS CAMPUSES Thanksgiving Break from 11/23 - 11/27 Thank you, Dave Martin Interim ED

PSAS Families and Staff,

I hope this message finds each of you healthy and excited for the Thanksgiving Holiday. I am reaching out today to inform you that The Fulton, Homeschool and Jones campuses will return to in-person learning on Monday November 30th, 2020.

The decision to return was not an easy one to make but we do feel it is in the best interest of our students learning success. We have had minimal positive cases in our schools and will continue to use the safety protocols established earlier this year to keep exposure to a minimum. Each school will be on a case by case basis as it has been in the past for quarantines and remote status.

As we return, I wanted to thank our Staff for their diligence in care over the last several months. They are the best! I also know the disruptions at home and work for our parents has been a challenge. I understand the challenges necessary to support your children who are engaged in remote learning at home and at the same time keep up with the demands of a job. Thank you for your patience and trust as we continue through this pandemic together.

Sincerely,

Dave Martin
