    Posted by Mike McNeff on 8/26/2020

    In an effort to provide support to parents and students, Steph Cummins will be discussing potential anxieties and changes students and their families may face in transitioning back to school this fall. I will discuss ways to have conversations regarding the transition and the changes in school this year due to COVID-19. We will discuss ways to address concerns kids and parents may have, how to create stability in unpredictable times and practical ways of reducing stress and anxiety this fall. There will be time to ask questions as well.

    • Provide a quiet study space for your child.
    • Ensure your child engages daily in online learning activities.
    • Parents should be aware that a limited number of courses may be available for their child.

    Student Expectations:

    Before deciding to enroll your child in the Virtual Academy you will need to review the Virtual Academy Student Readiness Rubric to determine if virtual instruction is right for you and your family.
