CardinalWithMask
WELCOME TO THE SAAS 2020 REOPENING PLAN. This resource will serve as our central point of information sharing as we continue to update our plans for the Fall and the 2020-21 school year.  This plan is grounded in SAAS’s mission and guiding principles, our values, and in the specific reopening plan principles of:
 
  • SAFETY
  • ACADEMIC QUALITY/CONTINUITY
  • CARE & CONCERN FOR FACULTY, STAFF, STUDENTS, & FAMILIES
  • EQUITY AND ACCESS
  • LONG TERM INSTITUTIONAL SUSTAINABILITY AND VIABILITY
  • RETENTION
  • ABILITY TO TRANSITION SMOOTHLY BETWEEN SCENARIOS

Our SAAS mission prepares us for this ever-changing world that we are experiencing.  We will hold true to our mission as we navigate a safe, vibrant, and engaging educational experience for the school year.

We commit to updating this information as plans get finalized and modified as we are guided by new information.  If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to reach out to our team at saas2020fallplanning@seattleacademy.org

Resources for Decision Making

Our Leadership Team evaluates these resources in order to make decisions related to campus reopening requirements looking at COVID-19 exposure and prediction dashboards and guidance related to safe practices.

Extra-Curricular and After-School Activities

Gatherings will be limited/modified and, if “in person,” will use safety precautions.  All meetings and large events will be hosted virtually or postponed.  Back-to-school nights, parent conferences/meetings, tutoring sessions, visit days, open houses, grade-level meetings, college visits, faculty meetings, etc. will be online if scheduled for the Fall.  There will be no in-person spirit events, performances, or manias. 

No fall travel nor fall retreats are planned, and international travel will not occur during the 2020-21 school year due to the complications in planning, safety precautions, and the uncertainty that travel will be allowed during that time frame.

No visitors on campus for the Fall.  No visitors on campus will also be the norm during the Fall.  This is to reduce exposure from the outside and impact on contact tracing reporting.  Exceptions will include substitute teachers for in-person classroom teaching or emergency repair/service response
