HOW TO ENROLL

Virtual Learning

March 28, 2020

Dear Ararat Charter School Parents and Students,

These past couple of weeks have brought us all challenges unlike what most of us have ever experienced in our lives. We hope that this email finds you and your families safe, and well.

Our Governing Board has given us directive to provide virtual and on-line instruction to all our students beginning Monday, March 30, 2020 through May 1, 2020. For the past two weeks, our teachers have been attending Zoom meetings and Google Classroom trainings to prepare for the virtual learning. Our entire staff has been working collaboratively and painstakingly to ensure that your child’s education will continue remotely.  We would like to thank our staff for all the late nights, early mornings, and weekends spend preparing for this new phase of instruction.

By now, teachers should have reached out to you and informed you about the available resources that you can access at home such as the websites for the English Language Arts and My Math curriculum as well as the login information for Google Classroom. They will also provide a Zoom meeting link for you to join the live session on Monday. We will also send you a separate email with the above-mentioned information.

At this time, we are not sure how third trimester grades will be determined or how grading will work during this online/distance learning time. Our School will follow state and county recommendations once they are made in the coming weeks.

We highly recommend that you make a daily schedule for your children and ensure that they will be able to participate in the virtual learning, attend on-line sessions, complete posted assignments, join discussion boards, post questions, and participate in recommended activities.

Please stay safe, and feel free to email us if you have any questions.

March 16, 2020

Effective Monday, March 16, 2020 we will close Ararat Charter School for two (2) weeks while we evaluate the appropriate path forward. This is a difficult decision, but necessary, as we try to slow the spread of the virus. We are taking this step to keep our community safe.

Our teachers have worked tirelessly to prepare packages for the next two weeks. This information was shared with you via an email. Notebooks have been sent home for students to use in case if they have no access to a printer. To access the packages click on Grade Level Study Packages.

For those students who do not have access to internet, Charter Communication will be providing internet. Beginning Monday, March 16, Charter commits to the following for 60 days:

  • Charter will offer free Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access for 60 days to households with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription and at any service level up to 100 Mbps. To enroll call 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households.
  • Charter will partner with school districts to ensure local communities are aware of these tools to help students learn remotely. Charter will continue to offer Spectrum Internet Assist, high speed broadband program to eligible low-income households delivering speeds of 30 Mbps.
  • Charter will open its Wi-Fi hotspots across our footprint for public use.
  • Spectrum does not have data caps or hidden fees.

Any questions please contact Charter Communication 1-844-488-8395.

We will continue to do our best to keep you informed through email notifications, as well as our School’s website, with current information and resources.

Thank for your support. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
