Middle Academy Announcements 5-13-2020




Thank you to all of you who have continued to work to support our school and teachers in the time of CoronaEd. Teachers are working hard each day to provide information, videos, activities to be sure students master content for the year. It is vital that your child continues to do the work to minimize any gaps. Now is the time for them to work at their pace to give their best in the work that is provided. All staff are operating in flexibility and grace as work is completed. If your child is having difficulty, please reach out to their teachers as they are here to help. 


Please note that the school is your official source of information on school work and expectations of our staff and administration.  No class placements have or ever will be decided or based on CoronaEd work. All decisions will be based on work completed prior to March 13th. However, to be sure your child is ready and prepared for the next year they should continue to be studious and complete work. It will impact them now and in the future. We are resilient! We persevere! We are integral! We continue to do that which is right! We are in this together! Join us as we support our staff and our students through this temporary disruption. We are in this together!!
