Dear Leman Families,
First, let me thank you for your support and understanding as we continue to respond to the unexpected invasion of COVID-19.We fully understand your varied concerns about health and safety, distance learning, the importance of face-to-face instruction, parents needing to work, the economy, and all of the other unexpected consequences of not being in school or not being in school in a traditional method. We also understand that the decision to not have in-person instruction is very hard, because the usual “back to school” routines have been disrupted for us all. With that said, we believe it’s what’s best when you take into consideration the health and safety of all of our staff and scholars and the Governor’s mandate for the reopening of school.
I wanted to provide another brief update as it relates to the 2020-2021 school year:
Official Start Date: The official start date for all scholars( with remote learning) will be August 5th. All scholars will start off the school year with remote learning.
Orientation /Meet and Greet – August 5th -7th will be used as orientation days. Therefore your scholars teacher will be contacting you to set up a specific time throughout those three days to get you and your scholar orientated with the online platform, schedules, home learning expectations etc.

August 17th – Essential workers may start dropping off their scholar(s) on August 17 to report to the campus for on-site learning through remote instruction.
