Please be assured that we are currently creating instructional plans and resources for your child while at home. These resources will be online for those who have access to the internet. For those who do not currently have internet access, the school will be providing paper packets for parents to pick up on campus.
Below is additional information that may help you during this time:
- Beginning next week, Advantage Academy students will be able to continue lessons at home through the online learning or through workbook/paper resources, which will be made available at each campus.
- Advantage Academy will provide meal service during closure to families (see below).
- The state of Texas has announced that no students will take the STAAR test, including End-of-Course tests this school year (3rd through 12th). I applaud this decision as a necessary step to remove state testing as a factor for school districts when making decisions about the health and well-being of our school communities.
- Report cards will be mailed within the next few weeks.
- Currently, there are no known cases of Advantage Academy students or staff members that have contracted COVID-19.
