  • Dear South Atlanta Families,

    I hope this letter finds all of you healthy and safe. By now you have likely heard Atlanta Public Schools’ decision to begin the new school year virtually on August 24th. I wanted to share with our school community that I am working together with staff and other schools within the cluster to continue the planning started last spring for the upcoming school year. We are waiting for final guidance from the district to develop a more comprehensive plan; once this plan is solidified I will communicate it out.

    Like you, I had hoped to be back in school for the new school year. However, as Atlanta is currently experiencing substantial spread of COVID-19, the district determined face-to-face instruction is not possible at this time. Now that the reopening decision has been made, our focus is singular - creating the best virtual learning experience for our students and families. Please know that I am collaborating with my fellow cluster principal colleagues, and all of these perspectives are guiding the planning as we prepare for Day One.

    As a school community, your patience and trust is appreciated. My commitment to the community is to keep you informed as plans are finalized. To stay informed please note that our superintendent, Dr. Lisa Herring, will host a community townhall to share more information about the district’s plans on Tuesday, August 4, 2020, at 6 pm. I encourage you to join the conversation to stay informed about plans as they continuously develop. Be well, and know that I will be in touch soon.

      

    Sincerely,

    Patricia Ford, Ed. D.
