Parent Academy Q&A Sessions | The Track Back

Parent Academy Q&A Sessions | The Track Back
Posted on 08/05/2020
Schools Re-Opening

How will school look and feel differently for my child? What does a typical day of school look like? Will the online learning be the same as it was this spring?

Our School Building Administrators and Staff have been working to prepare for the start of school while considering a variety of guidelines set forth in this new era of education. Parents and families have many questions before the start of school this fall. We are pleased to offer parent academy sessions, virtually on our website, for parents to connect with their child’s school principal and staff.

One thing is clear: the decision-making process will be unique for each and every family. Attend an upcoming Parent Academy to learn the answers to some of your most pressing questions.
