Return to School Plan

2020-2021 School Year

This Storefront Academy  Reopening Plan aims to define clear guidance for how we will open our doors, physically and virtually, that is aligned with the regulations developed by the CDC and state authorities. Our first commitment is to the staff, students and families we serve. Our priority must be keeping them safe. The areas outlined in this plan represent major considerations our schools are addressing to reopen  safely and to sustain their reopening. Each department has taken the safety of both staff and our learners into consideration.

Of course, as with every plan right now, this document is fluid and will change as necessary based on guidance from the state, CDC, and considerations to our families and our staff. We obviously don’t want to have a COVID-19 case at one of our schools in the fall but it could, and we will be ready to act if and when it happens.

Our return to school will occur with two options, all remote and blended (on site and remote). It is important that all parents and staff understand and be prepared to comply with the information shared in this document.

Sincerely,

Dr. Nicole Garcia

CEO
