Dear Liberty Tech Families,
As we approach the upcoming school year, we are navigating a new and challenging landscape due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. You likely have had to make difficult decisions for your own family about returning to work, interacting with others, and assuming normal activities. All of us at Liberty Tech Charter School believe strongly that school is vital for the intellectual, social, and emotional growth of all students. Our ultimate shared goal is to provide hands-on learning in order to allow our students to be able to use critical thinking and problem solving skills while building character education through our cardinal virtues. Please know that our top priorities are the safety of your child(ren) and our staff, as well as providing the best academics possible for our student body.
At this time, we would like to inform you of how we plan to proceed with the 2020-2021 school year. As you are already aware, we have made the decision to push back the start of school instruction until August 3, 2020. At that time, we will be offering two educational options for your child(ren). Please review and discuss which option would be best for your family, and complete your selection notification by Friday, July 17th. Note: School leadership is carefully monitoring information from the CDC, the GA Dept. of Health, the GA Dept. of Education, and local Health Departments on a continual basis. While it is possible that our instructional model may have to change due to the fluid situation that we are currently facing, know that we will keep you informed of any changes as quickly as possible.
Option 1: Brick and Mortar
Traditional, face-to-face learning with protocols designed to mitigate the spread of disease. These prevention protocols include, but are not limited to:
Option 2: Full-time Virtual School
Education provided online in a virtual classroom. For families considering this option, the following expectations will be in place:
Please click here to select an option that best fits the needs of your family. Those choosing option 2 will automatically be directed to the Virtual Learning Application.
The survey must be completed by Friday, July 17, 2020.
Please be advised that failure to complete the survey will result in a default selection of Option 1 for your child(ren).
Information will be sent out in the coming weeks about our virtual open house dates for each grade level. If you have any questions concerning our reopening plans, please email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, July 13th. An FAQ document answering your questions will be sent out on Thursday, July 16th. All surveys must be completed by Friday, July 17th. We are honored to be a part of your child’s education.
