Important School Opening Information
Dear CGA Families,
Governor Newsom has issued clear guidelines that schools can open for in-classroom instruction ONLY IF the local County has been off the CDPH Monitoring List for 14 consecutive days. Fresno County is currently on the CDPH Monitoring List.
What will happen on August 24, the first day of school?
Clovis Global Academy has developed a school opening plan that allows us to quickly adjust to any possibility.
- If Fresno County remains ON the Monitoring List, we will start school with a high quality Distance Learning program. Students will be supported on a daily basis with live streams from the classrooms and complemented by providing materials for meaningful project based activities at home. Daily attendance will ensure student progress is monitored effectively.
- If Fresno County is OFF the Monitoring List, parents can choose between 5 Days/Week of In-Classroom Instruction or Learning at Home supported by the teacher. We will honor the choice you indicated in the School Opening Survey but please let us know if that has changed. You can fill the survey again or call us at 559-575-0587.
Safety and Compassion
We have a unique situation - our TK-K-1st grade students need extra care and attention. Most of our parents indicated a preference for in-classroom learning with safety guidelines in place. Our teachers want to be in the classroom as well-- we are ready and hopeful! We are also fully equipped for Learning at Home or Distance Learning. We will support our students’ learning with live video streams from the classroom, recorded instructional videos, technology devices, easy access to learning materials, and parent training before the start of school. Expect to hear from your teachers in the next few weeks to schedule a Meet and Greet before the school year begins.
The most recent guidelines issued by the Governor present a more realistic scenario for our students. Students in 2nd grade and below may wear face shields for safety, which allows students to see facial expressions-- this is so important as they learn to pronounce words and read social cues in these early years.
Help Us take the "Distance" out of Distance Learning
We’re interested in understanding our community’s actual needs and making meaningful connections to ensure these challenges are overcome and student learning is continual. We are determined to adapt to the needs of this time and develop compassionate and compliant systems that support student learning and families’ connectedness to one another and to CGA. Please email or call me if you are interested in helping CGA in a Task Force -the objective is to take the “Distance” out of Distance Learning.
We will continue to communicate with our families to understand your unique needs. Please help us by calling the Principal/Superintendent directly at 559-240-5845. You can be assured that we will note your needs and work with your family to provide the best service we can to overcome any obstacles to your child’s learning this year.
Thank you always,
