SPECIAL CORONA CoVid-19 VIRUS RESOURCE PAGE

We continue to closely monitor reports from the Bolivian Ministry of Health, World Health Organization, Center for Disease Control and the State Department about the current pandemic and assess any possible threat to the ACS community. ACS has emergency plans for infectious diseases when they threaten our community and at this time, we have fully implemented our ACS Distance Learning Plan.

Continuamos monitoreando de cerca los informes del Ministerio de Salud de Bolivia, la Organización Mundial de la Salud, el Centro para el Control de Enfermedades y el Departamento de Estado sobre la epidemia actual y evaluamos cualquier posible amenaza para la comunidad de ACS. El ACS tiene planes de emergencia para enfermedades infecciosas cuando amenazan a nuestra comunidad y ahora estamos en nuestra ACS Distance Learning Plan.

Resources for Parents

Consistent with our current expectations regarding preventing the spread of contagious diseases please also see our guidelines for keeping students home from school (p. 50 of SS Handbook, p. 40 of ES Handbook).

De acuerdo con nuestras expectativas actuales con respecto a la prevención de la propagación de enfermedades contagiosas, consulte también nuestras pautas para mantener a los alumnos en casa fuera del colegio (p. 50 del Manual de Secundaria, p. 40 del Manual de Primaria).

Dear ACS Families,

CoVid-19 is causing profound consequences in every aspect of our lives. Respecting your time and priorities my communications will only include what I believe to be the most important items. As we wrap up our first week of distance learning I want to again thank all parents for their active support of their learners at home. In light of the recent Government Mandates restricting movement we are reviewing our current distance learning schedule. Please see other important items below as well.

PARENT/STUDENT EXPERIENCE SURVEY RESULTS SUMMARY

Thank you for completing the recent parent survey. This is our second Parent Experience Survey that we hope you will complete by the end of the weekend. Below are some results from our first survey.

  • 97 total respondents
  • Our community average self-rating on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best is an 8.1
  • Approximately 15% report intermittent connectivity challenges
  • Approximately 17% report inconsistency with assigned work (some classes too much-some classes to little)
  • Approximately 8% report challenges with lunch (too short, too early)
  • Approximately 65% of ES respondents report that adjusted afternoon expectations are working
  • Approximately 8% (mostly High School students) report that workload is too heavy

With Deep Respect,

Jamie
