We at Chancellor Academy hope you and your families are doing well during this difficult and unconventional time. After reviewing the current situation, Chancellor Academy will not be re-opening prior to our spring break, which will run from April 10th - April 17th. We will continue with delivering work via virtual Flexible Instruction and hard-copy materials being sent home based on student needs. After spring break, the Flexible Instruction Plan, online with Google Classroom and work being sent home, will resume on Monday, April 20th unless there is a decision by government officials to re-open conventional schools, which does not appear likely. Counselors will still be available via e-mail daily from 8am-2pm, and will continue conducting phone sessions on their assigned days. We will be sure to update families as more information becomes available. Should you require any assistance, we are only a message or call away.
Thank you, and be well.
