Subject:           COVID-19 – Notification of School Closure

Thank you for your patience with this very challenging situation.

After careful thought, planning and based on our area school districts’ decision to extend spring break then pursue online learning for our school-age kiddos, Opportunity School has made the difficult decision to close Opportunity School beginning Monday, March 23 through Friday, April 3. Depending on state of the virus spread, we will tentatively re-open on Monday, April 6.

We want to assure you that we have made these decisions out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our students, families and Opportunity School teachers and staff.  Please continue to share your input on the Needs Survey that we sent out yesterday. Also, be in contact with your teachers and campus directors with concerns and questions you have.

Here is what you need to know.

  • We will remain open for the remainder of this week to allow families time to secure alternate care for those who do not have the option to work from home.
  • We know that this is difficult for everyone so family fees will be suspended during this two-week period.
  • We know you care about your teachers and staff and they will also be paid during this period.
  • We will be brainstorming ways to help support learning at home. If you have questions or need books for your young children, please let your teacher know.

We are praying for peace and comfort for everyone in our school family during this difficult time. If you have any questions, please visit with our campus leaders, your teachers or me.

A great quote for all of us during this time:

“Let’s take it one moment at a time and do the next right thing.”
