Dear IAA Families,
As we continue to navigate through these uncertain times, I want to strongly encourage everyone to continue to practice "social distancing," as well as other measures to ensure your safety, health and well-being. Remember that frequent hand-washing and sanitizing, as well as the cleaning and sanitizing of "high-traffic" areas, is strongly recommended. Should you feel "symptomatic," please seek appropriate medical attention. I hope that you are all well at this time.
With this in mind, IAA administration is rolling out guidelines as they relate to the continuity of instruction for our students. As per Governor Wolf’s order, during this 2-week closure, IAA is not required to provide education to our students. However, we have developed a recommended daily plan that students may access online while they are home. While we cannot make it mandatory for students to follow this plan, we hope that you will encourage your children to make educational activities a regular part of their daily routine. We understand that not all students have the same level of access to technology resources, as well as the internet (a survey was sent to assess need). We will be taking steps to address those areas of need and will provide more information in the days to come. Currently, the “IAA Recommended Educational Activities Planner” is a recommendation to keep students engaged during this closure. Once the plan is rolled out, it will be updated frequently over the next few days. Please be sure to check our website for regular updates.
At this time, IAA administration is requesting that all teachers and staff be available during the hours of 7:30 - 3:00 PM, daily, to help support our administration, as well as our families. Furthermore, IAA administration is requiring teachers and staff to respond to any questions you may have, via email or phone, as quickly as possible. We understand that these are less-than-ideal times, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as await further directions from the Pennsylvania Department of Education, the CDC, as well as the Pennsylvania Department of Health.
We are confident that, together, our IAA family can get through these unprecedented times.
Please remember to take all the necessary precautions to protect yourself, your families and your community.
Brad Schifko, M.Ed.
