Please Support Our Annual Fund
The Annual Fund Campaign is our primary opportunity for school families to participate in the continued success of our school by helping to bridge the gap left by state and local funding. This fund supports existing educational programs, new curriculum development, improves facilities, and supports essential needs of Socrates Academy.
 
Elementary Option for Hybrid Plan
We have carefully reviewed the numbers from the Intent to Return Hybrid Instruction form and based on the classroom occupancy, we will create an alternate plan for BOD consideration that will allow ALL K-5 scholars who have opted into the face to face program to attend each week. This is now allowable per the Governor’s recent decision to allow elementary schools to operate on “Plan A.” This plan will be presented to the BOD on 9.30.2020 as an option.

This plan;
  • will involve all students who are not opting for remote instruction attending in-person classes on campus Monday - Thursday with Fridays reserved for remote instruction and on-campus deep cleaning.
  • will give the option of full remote to those families not choosing to return to campus.
  • will begin with Arrival at 7:45am (students tardy at 8:25am)
  • will dismiss students at 3:00pm
  • will necessitate parents who are picking up students whose classrooms are located in lower AND upper lot to come through both carpools. This will allow us to continue to keep students socially distanced. Please remember this is temporary.
Synchronous Instruction
What it looks like in the classroom
You may have heard about synchronous instruction. This method teaches remote students and in-classroom students at the same time, real-time. Take a look to see what it looks like in a classroom.
