July 12th – July 30th, 2021
Middle School (Entering grades 5-8)
High School (Entering grades 9-12)
Learning Prep School Summer Program (Extended Year Program referred to as EYP) is a 3-week program beginning Monday, July 12th and ending Friday, July 30th. The program will operate Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 2:00pm. The EYP is designed to maintain progress and prevent substantial regression through structured educational and social experiences. We are planning an in person program in the same set up as we have currently with the cohort model. This model and the COVID environment will certainly be monitored as we get closer to July, in the off chance that we can be a bit more “normal” by then. Families have the option for their child to participate remotely, if they choose, similar to our current school plan. Any student participating in the program would keep their Chromebook and return it at the end of the 3 weeks.
We are implementing an in person summer program with an option for students to be fully remote, this year.
Remote students will be grouped together, separate from the in person students.
In person students will be separated into a Middle school cohort and one or two High school cohorts. The academic staff will remain within these cohorts, however the Speech, OT and elective staff will teach all students and go between the cohorts.
We will continue to follow the state COVID safety protocols as outlined below in the COVID related health policy below and will include:
● mandatory mask wearing, with the exception of 2 mask breaks during break and lunch times
● frequent hand washing and hand sanitizing stations will be utilized
● disinfectant spray will be used in the classroom and during PE activities
● 6 feet physical distancing will be implemented in each classroom where possible with no less than 3 feet if needed
● students will not be allowed to share materials
● regular cleaning schedule by the maintenance staff
Parents will be able to choose the remote or in person program. This choice will need to be made before the program begins and will remain for the entirety of the program.
Program components consist of academic classes, social skills groups, art/computers, organizational support, social activities and structured virtual field trips. The academic areas will include reading, math, writing, and social communication.
Program components consist of functional academic classes, social and transitional/independent living skills development as well as virtual field trips. The functional academic areas will include reading, math, and writing. All students entering 12th grade will be participating in an on campus work experience, 2 days per week, in our food service kitchen or other opportunities.
