ASK Update of Schedules & Meetings 7.29.20

Hello ASK Families,

Thank you so much for your patience as we get ready to start an unprecedented school year.  We really appreciate the feedback that you provided to us with the survey that you completed last week.  With your feedback, the feedback of the staff, and directives from Governor Lujan Grisham and the Public Education Department, we have created a schedule for our virtual opening to the school year.  

Accordingly, we have been diligently working on the scholars’ schedules.  PowerSchool will be reactivated on Wednesday, July 29th.  If you have questions about your schedule, for High School contact:  clemons@theaskacademy.org, Special Education: nshimada@theaskacademy.org or Middle School:  clane@theaskacademy.org.  Please note that schedule changes will be very limited due to small class sizes (needed to keep everyone safe from the spread of COVID 19 once we return to campus in the hybrid model). 

As indicated in the below charts, we will have a soft virtual opening for the first week of school, from August 3rd to August 7th.  After the first week, we are dividing up the school into A/B Cohorts for smaller class sizes (to prevent the spread of COVID 19 once we return to campus in the hybrid model).  You will be notified before Friday, August 7th, which cohort your scholar has been assigned. The schedule for your scholar may change with the leveling of classes.  We are working very hard to ensure that siblings will be in the same cohort, however we cannot guarantee that at this time.  If possible, we will get siblings into the same cohorts once we return to campus for hybrid instruction.

Given that the virtual start to the school year is new to everyone, we would like to hold Zoom sessions to explain the schedule and give parents an opportunity to ask questions.  In an effort to reach as many parents as possible, we will be holding two different Zoom meetings.  One will be held tomorrow evening, Thursday, July 30th at 5:30 PM, and the other will be held on Saturday, August 1st at 10:00 AM.  Please find the login credentials for those meetings in the following text.
