Weekly Newsletter & Updates
Dear Allegro Community,
The start of the 2020-2021 school year is quickly approaching and Allegro is continuing its preparations for a successful year. Below, you will find information on our LEAP Week. This week is meant to be a time for students along with their parent/guardian to stop by the school, pick up items that they need, and interact with school staff prior to the start of classes. We have increased our staff considerably this school year and are excited to welcome many new faces. This LEAP Week will be a great opportunity to meet them! Please follow the instructions below to sign-up for your specific time to attend LEAP Week.

As mentioned in our previous newsletter, Allegro will be starting the year virtually on September 8th. For the first month, instruction at Allegro will be delivered virtually. We will then reassess our options every two weeks to determine the safest time frame to move to a hybrid (online and live) schedule. Any decision in change of instructional delivery will be based on availability of staff, local COVID-19 case numbers, guidance from local/state medical professionals, and best practices in the educational community. Allegro will notify families two weeks in advance prior to making nay changes in the learning environment and will offer a virtual option for the the entire school year. Once we are able to move to a hybrid environment, we will send out a registration form for your family to decide if they would like to make the change to the hybrid schedule or stay virtual.

Be on the look out in our future newsletters for information on technical support for parents in the virtual learning environment. This will include How-To's and information on our new learning management system (LMS) that will put all of our resources used in the classroom (i.e. Zoom, Google Classroom, etc.) under one roof. This uniformity will alleviate any issues accessing those resources, particularly in the virtual environment. We will also be hosting virtual Middle School & High School Q&A sessions, with the details being released in the coming weeks.


Sincerely,

Daniel Neikirk
Principal
LEAP Week Information
LEAP Week will occur August 31st-September 3rd from 8:30AM-3:30PM. During these days, we ask that families sign up for a specific time to come into the school, pick up school items (devices, schedules, instruments and other class items), and meet teachers.

You can sign up for a time to come in to our new space here. We ask that once you sign-up, you only come on the date and time scheduled. This is to maintain building occupancy and social distancing requirements and to keep everyone safe. If you have multiple children, it is fine to sign-up for one time only. Only the student and parent/guardians should attend this meeting as the amount of individuals in the building is strictly limited.

We will not be scheduling times outside of these identified hours and days, so please be sure to sign-up in order for students to procure necessary materials and be prepared for the September 8th start of school


We will not be offering a full building tour at this time due to building occupancy guidelines. Instead, we will be releasing a virtual tour in the coming weeks.
Nutrition Services Information
If you haven't already, you should be receiving a form from CCSD food/nutrition services regarding school meal pick-up. Here at our new campus (the former Gordon Garrett Academy of Technology, 2731 Gordon St., North Charleston, SC 29405), Allegro will be a dedicated meal delivery site and will be providing curb side "grab-and-go" meals. This also means that if you have multiple students at other CCSD schools, you can choose Allegro as your primary meal pick-up site if this is more convenient for you. More information can be found on the CCSD website under food and nutrition link.
