Chromebook Agreement, Remote Learning Expectations, & More!

Dear SKY Families, 

As the start of the 2020-2021 is fast approaching we want to be sure that all of our students have the tools they need to be successful this school year.

One of the major changes we are implementing this school year is to provide each student with an assigned Chromebook to be returned at the completion of the students' school year at SKY Academy. We want to be sure that all of our students and their parents/guardians understand the expectations of this change by electronically acknowledging agreement to the terms of The Chromebook Agreement prior to school starting on August 31st.

In addition to the Chromebook Agreement, we wanted to be sure to also provide all of our families with an idea of what Remote Learning will look like along with the expectations of remote learners. Whether your student will begin the school year as a remote learner or not, it is important for all of our students and their parents/guardians to preview the provided video in this electronic form prior to the start of the school year. 

Click or tap here to complete the Electronic Chromebook Agreement & Remote Learning Expectations Form.

We also want all our families to know what school will look like if you choose to come to SKY Academy for in-person learning.  Below is a video explaining the safety precautions we have put in place and what school will look like.

What will school look like SKY Today video.

 

6th grade orientation is Tuesday, August 25th from 5:30-7.

7th grade orientation is Wednesday, August 26th from 5:30-7.

8th grade orientation is Thursday, August 27th from 5:30-7.

Please take a moment to complete the following survey. This is our declaration of intent survey. We are asking you to choose between in-person learning in our building or remote learning from your home but taught by SKY Academy teachers. We know that we are still a month away from the start of school and things may change. What you choose today is not binding, but will help us as we plan and create class schedules. We ask that you please complete the survey as soon as possible.

SCSB Proposes Delaying School Opening until August 31st

There has been a change in our opening plan since yesterday's email. The Sarasota County School Board has proposed delaying the opening of school until August 31st. This has to be approved by the Florida Department of Education. Since we follow the Sarasota County calendar, if their opening date changes, so does ours. The rest of the letter and information distributed yesterday is still accurate, though we have learned with this current pandemic, things may still change.

Stay tuned for an update on the start of the school year. If the opening gets pushed back, we will hold off on sending the declaration of intent survey out until closer to the new start date.
