COVID Policy Safety and Testing Updates:

Based on the current CDC guidance regarding local COVID-19 Community Levels, we will continue our mask requirement for staff and visitors.  Students are also strongly encouraged to wear masks since we are still in a high community transmission area.  This requirement is based on the most current CDC guidance and information regarding transmission levels for Dekalb and Fulton counties, which can be viewed here.

If your student has been testing with Viral Solutions over the past few weeks, they are already in the system and there is no need for them to opt-in again. Stay safe!

SEEING WHITENESS FOR ANTI-RACIST ACTION

Training Opportunity Alert!

While you’re registering your kids for fall activities, consider signing yourself up for Drew’s fall cohort of Seeing Whiteness for Anti-Racist Action

Seeing Whiteness helps white people notice and explore our personal racial journeys while recognizing how racism is socialized within our communities. This six-session program (1.5 hours/week via Zoom) offers a learning circle experience that creates space for self-focus, reflection, and action practices to build skills and stamina on one’s anti-racist journey. 

Seeing Whiteness for Anti-Racist Action will be starting for Drew’s parents in September and is available on a sliding scale. Fill out the interest form here

Typically, high school is the time when young Eagles are maturing and are prepared to fly on their own. Encourage this independent practice. They will still need the watchful eye to guide them in their development and learning. Please do so during breaks and refrain from interrupting live instruction for the benefit of the students and teachers. The slideshow will include some additional ways you can support your learner in the virtual environment.
