Dear Crown Pointe Academy Parents and Guardians, We hope you had a great weekend! Meet the Teachers Event: In lieu of Back to School Night, Crown Pointe Academy will be hosting an  OPTIONAL Meet the Teachers event this Thursday, August 13th from 12:00-6:00 p.m. and Friday, August 14th from 12:00-4:00 p.m. For elementary students: Similar to Parent Teacher Conferences, parents will be asked to sign up for a time to meet with the teachers.  The link to sign up for a time slot can be found  HERE.  Please find your student’s teacher and click view.  Click on the green Sign Up button next to an available time slot and complete the requested information to confirm your time slot.  The elementary teachers will meet with parents outside in a socially distanced format and students will have the opportunity to visit their classrooms and drop off any school supplies.   You can find your student’s teachers in the Infinite Campus Parent Portal under schedule. For middle school students: Students will be able to pick up their cohort school schedules, locker assignments, and combinations on a drop in basis.  Students will be allowed into the middle school hallway to drop off school supplies and set up their lockers.  No more than 12 students will be allowed in the hallway at a time.  Middle school teachers will also be available to meet with parents outside. If your student has an essential medication that is kept at the school, please bring the medication along with the medication form signed by the physician to the school during the Meet to Teachers event.  If you are not planning to attend, please have the medication ready for drop off on your first day of in person learning.

Our Mission: The mission of Crown Pointe Academy is to promote creativity, curiosity, character, and community in a challenging Core Knowledge environment. A Message from Mr. O: Planning for the Plan We’ve all learned a lot over the last few months.  We’ve learned how to social distance,  to do without things we used to think of as necessary, and to find supplies that are in short supply.  School has been no different.  We’v e learned a lot these last few months, too: how to run an online school, how to have Google Meet lessons, and how teach from a computer screen.  Despite all we’ve learned, we still have a lot of unknowns.  When is school going to start?  What will school look like?  Is it safe for my child to be around other children?  We’ve all entered a new world and have to figure out a new plan of action. Our first adaptation to this new world was to move school online.  Now we need to plan on moving school back indoors in the fall.  Our expectation today is that we it won’t have school as usual.  At this time, we believe it is likely that we will have a model of school with multi-week “ sessions” with a maximum class size of 10.  For Crown Pointe, this type of structure would be based on the small group classes we already have, Cougar Time.   Fortunately our teachers and assistants have a great deal of experience with this class structure helping making for a smoother transition.  This new version of school will need to be flexible with the possibility of change at any moment and parents will have the opportunity to opt in to the choice that fits them best.  It is a model of school, with parent choice at the center, where parents can pick the best option for them and their child(ren).  Of course one of these choices will always be a 100% online option for those that want or need it. So in preparing for these changes, we have assembled a Return to School Committee (RSC) comprised of parents, community members, and staff.  The RSC will meet weekly over the summer and plan for the million inevitable details of such a dramatic change, i.e. cleaning regimens, class structures, lunch schedules, and a routine for temperature checks just to name a few.  The first action of the RSC will be to send out a parent survey the first week of June.  We need your input on times of day, days of the week, online vs. in person and much more.  Look for that survey invitation soon.  The RSC will also update...
