Senior Students-Graduation

January 11, 2022

Dear ECA Families,

We know how challenging remote learning can be for everyone and we are so sorry that we had to do this last minute.  We have several staff members that have tested positive and with staffing shortages throughout the state we could not secure substitutes nor do we have enough personnel to provide adequate supervision unless we transition to remote.  Please know that everyone’s safety is our top priority.

At this time, we will be remote learning until Wednesday, January 19th. It is essential that students participate in their classes so they do not fall behind. Teachers will be doing Google Meets, or Zoom classes that will be communicated through their Google Classrooms. Students that have yet to access their Google Classrooms need to simply log into their email account to find Google Classrooms and accept invitations to their different classes. Here are a few things to keep in mind for the next few days:

  1. Students who have left devices in school may pick up equipment starting at 7:45 a.m. tomorrow morning only.   
  2. Students must check Google Classroom for remote logins and all work and information about classes.
  3. Classes will follow the regular scheduled times.
  4. Teachers will take attendance within the first 5 minutes.  Students will be marked present by logging into live classes and showing their faces by using their cameras – on time.  Students MUST participate in class.
  5. Students/parents communicate with teachers about individual situations that involve modifying timelines.
  6. Monitor your student for symptoms.  If your student is showing symptoms, please test them and inform the school about any and all illness including symptoms and test results.

As a reminder, we will still be following the school calendar, so there will be no classes (not even remotely) on Monday, January 17 and Tuesday, January 18th.  See you back on campus on Wednesday, January 19th. 

Remember that Mobile Health will be on campus the morning of January 19th to provide free rapid COVID testing to staff and students.  Students must have a parent or guardian sign the consent.  The link to the online consent can be found on our website or Facebook page.  Hard copies are available at the front desk but not until we are back on campus so if you want your student tested Wednesday, please complete the online consent.  Hard copies will need to be returned to Julie Ramsey.  Mobile Health will continue with their regular Monday morning testing January 24th. 

We will communicate updates through email, text, Facebook and our website.  Please continue to check in for changes and updates. 

As of September 1, 2021, masks are required while on ECA’s campus for anyone age 2 and up until further notice. 

Please note that some of our staff members may be behind a shield and/or plexiglass barrier in lieu of a mask so that students and visitors can read their lips.

FREE COVID TESTING is available to students (and staff) every Monday until 11:00 a.m.  Students must have a signed parental/guardian consent.  Please follow the links below to complete the electronic form.  It is up to the student to check in for testing.  Please continue to monitor your students for symptoms.

What Is Early College?

“Early college” means a secondary school that provides only a curriculum that is designed in a manner that requires each student to enroll in and complete secondary and postsecondary courses while enrolled in the four years of high school such that, upon successful completion of the curriculum, the student who successfully completes the curriculum will have completed either the requirements of a high school diploma and an associate’s degree or other postsecondary credential or at least sixty credits toward the completion of a postsecondary credential. The curriculum must be designed to be completed within four years.
