10/23/20: An Important Message from the CEO

Good Morning IAA Families,

The Thanksgiving holiday provides us all with the opportunity to reflect upon what we are thankful and grateful for in our lives.  I would like to thank all of our families for entrusting IAA with the tremendous responsibility of educating your children.  This is a responsibility that we do not take lightly.  Your continued dedication to our school, during these extremely challenging times, is truly appreciated.  TOGETHER, we have all worked cooperatively for the betterment of our students, our families, and our community, and for that, I am extremely grateful.  THANK YOU. 

With Lehigh County still identified as “substantial” on the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) / Pennsylvania Department of Health (PA DOH) COVID-19 Community Transmission Table, and with the daily rate of COVID-19 transmissions growing at an alarming rate, IAA has decided to move to full virtual instruction after the Thanksgiving break.  While IAA has had no confirmed cases of COVID-19 transmission in our school to date, we are heeding the advice of PDE, PA DOH, as well as state and local health officials, to move to full virtual instruction, as the continued health, safety, and well-being of our students, families, and staff are at the forefront of our decision-making.

Beginning December 1, 2020, we will transition to a full virtual learning platform.  Our anticipated date to return to our hybrid instructional model (current level of instruction) is January 5, 2021.  

Changes to the information in this email and additional emails you may receive may occur based on new and/or additional directives and/or information from PDE, PA DOH, Governor Wolf, state and/or local medical professionals, etc.

More information with regards to food distribution, during this time, will be forthcoming.

Be well.  Be safe.  Stay healthy.

Sincerely,

Bradley S. Schifko, M.Ed.
Chief Executive Officer

Buenas dias, estudiantes y familias de IAA,

Las vacaciones de Acción de Gracias nos brindan a todos la oportunidad de reflexionar sobre aquello por lo que estamos agradecidos y agradecidos en nuestras vidas. Me gustaría agradecer a todas nuestras familias por confiar a IAA la tremenda responsabilidad de educar a sus hijos. Ésta es una responsabilidad que no nos tomamos a la ligera. Su continua dedicación a nuestra escuela, durante estos tiempos extremadamente desafiantes, es realmente apreciada. JUNTOS, todos hemos trabajado cooperativamente para el mejoramiento de nuestros estudiantes, nuestras familias y nuestra comunidad, y por eso estoy extremadamente agradecido. GRACIAS.

Con el condado de Lehigh aún identificado como “sustancial” en la tabla de transmisión comunitaria COVID-19 del Departamento de Educación de Pensilvania (PDE) / Departamento de Salud de Pensilvania (PA DOH), y con la tasa diaria de transmisiones de COVID-19 creciendo a un ritmo alarmante, IAA ha decidido pasar a la instrucción virtual completa después de las vacaciones de Acción de Gracias. Si bien IAA no ha tenido casos confirmados de transmisión de COVID-19 en nuestra escuela hasta la fecha, estamos siguiendo el consejo de PDE, PA DOH, así como de los funcionarios de salud estatales y locales, para pasar a la instrucción virtual completa, ya que la salud continua, la seguridad y el bienestar de nuestros estudiantes, familias y personal están al frente de nuestra toma de decisiones.

A partir del 1 de diciembre de 2020, realizaremos la transición a una plataforma de aprendizaje virtual completa. Nuestra fecha prevista para regresar a nuestro modelo de instrucción híbrido (nivel actual de instrucción) es el 5 de enero de 2021.

Los cambios en la información de este correo electrónico y los correos electrónicos adicionales que pueda recibir, pueden ocurrir en base a directivas nuevas y / o adicionales y / o información de PDE, PA DOH, Gobernador Wolf, profesionales médicos estatales y / o locales, etc.

Próximamente se proporcionará más información con respecto a la distribución de alimentos durante este tiempo.

Cuidate. Cuidate. Mantenerse sano.

Sinceramente,

Sr. Brad Schifko, director ejecutivo

Distribución de comidas para estudiantes esta semana: martes 24 de noviembre: 12 p.m. a 3 p.m.
