Dear Academic Afterschool Families,

I hope that all of you are staying healthy and safe. As you may have heard, the SAGA building is closed as of March 12, possibly until after our scheduled Spring Break. Return dates for Academic Afterschool at this time would be April 27 and 28.

I will be meeting with the teachers next week to plan out how we will proceed to keep our older students engaged through remote learning.

Our plan will be work packets, with instructions for the students to complete at home.

You will receive materials via email by the end of next week, for a week or two at a time. Each teacher will send these out to their class. In addition, the teachers will be available "live" on Monday or Tuesday during their class time (at this time, we are planning from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.), either through Skype or Google Hangouts: they will communicate with you which program they will use. That will give both you and your student a chance to ask questions regarding the work, etc.

If you have any trouble accessing the materials, please let me know: Anita Dunlap,

Please also note the following Next Steps:

SAGA will continue to utilize email, text alerts, the SAGA website, and the SAGA Facebook page to communicate updates. 

SAGA will continue to reassess the situation and update plans as necessary and as recommended.

The SAGA School would like to continue following the precautions below:
  • If your child is showing signs of illness and has possibly been exposed to a patient with COVID-19, please notify The SAGA School: 206-442-2023 /
  • If any member of your household is diagnosed with COVID-19, please notify The SAGA School: 206-442-2023 / .  
These measures are important to protect the health of the greater SAGA Community.

Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this uncharted territory. If you have questions for the school, please email Anjanette Gonzales at or the School Office at

An additional resource is a new Washington State call center that can answer questions about the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), how it spreads, and what to do if you have symptoms. Call 1-800-525-0127 and press #.
