I want to thank all of you who took time to complete our reopening survey and for providing us with excellent feedback. We have considered your opinions and have developed options which we believe will serve all of our families well.
Sparrow Academy will be offering two delivery models of instruction to better meet the needs of all of our children and families. We will be offering our regular on-campus program which will begin on August 10, 2020. We will be implementing safety and sanitation procedures as outlined in our plan shared on July 1, 2020. Additionally, we will also be offering an eLearning program.
The eLearning program will allow your child to work from home utilizing the Moodle platform. If you select this model your child will be required to log into the platform daily to watch videos from the in person class, complete independent assignments, and take part in live classes. Children in the program will be expected to remain engage in learning Monday through Friday from 7:45 until 2:45. Your child will log in based on a predetermined schedule for daily live classes. We will continue to provide trauma-informed care to our children through the eLearning model. We will be scheduling individual one-on-one time with your child and a Sparrow staff member. Your child will also take part in weekly Zoom social skills lessons and we will stream our weekly chapel services.
Please complete the form at the attached link to let us know which model of instruction you are selecting for your child. All forms must be received by Friday, July 24th or your child will be withdrawn from Sparrow Academy. I am including a video explanation to provide additional information about these two models of instruction. Please contact me with any questions you may have.
