Mandatory Virtual Meeting
The health and safety of you and our students remain our highest priority. Since new information is continuously shared from MDE, CDC, and MDH, it is also our priority that our parents are informed of Excell’s COVID-19 policies and procedures. There will be a mandatory virtual meeting for parents on Tuesday, November 24th, at 6:30 pm to 7:15 pm . Ms. Davison will have an entire breakdown of the COVID decision tree, isolation periods, and household situations. Come with questions, and let’s stay ahead of this together.
Attendance will be taken as this meeting is mandatory in order for your child to continue participating in the Community Heroes Program
Community Heroes Attendance Policy
Purpose of this Program
Community Heroes is a program at Excell Academy that supports children whose school districts have implemented remote, hybrid, or distance learning strategies during the peacetime emergency. Servicing school-age children ages five to twelve during the hours of a school day. We provide services for essential workers and our enrolled families experiencing hardships in the communities surrounding us.
To be successful in offering this program, communication between our staff and parents must be consistent. Parents will be required to contact their child’s provider if they are going to be absent. At Excell Academy, we want to be of service to all experiencing these current times’ struggles. In doing so, students must be present at their scheduled times. Distance learning begins at 9:00 am; let’s allow our students to be successful by arriving at the drop-off time of 8:30 am.
Calling in when absent: How will this Help?
- This will allow CH to monitor the COVID case in our environment and make decisions to keep our students, families, and you safe.
- This will also allow us to place children with urgent needs in available spaces and get them the help they need.
- This will allow us to navigate our contact tracing better.
