Dear Skyline Families, 

We appreciate your patience throughout this Pandemic.  While we realize in-person education for students is important, the safety of students and staff is critical path.  On July 23, 2020, our Governor in consultation with the Arizona Department of Health Services and the Arizona Department of Education issued an Executive Order.  The Executive Order states that schools shall not open for in-person learning until public health benchmarks developed by the Arizona Department of Health are met.  These benchmarks are not yet available to schools or the public but are said to be available no later than August 7th, 2020.   As a result of this guidance, Skyline Education and its schools will continue to provide virtual instruction and remain closed for in-person learning until we meet the benchmarks provided by the Arizona Department of Health.   

Although we would like to provide a specific date as to when students can return to in-person learning, we are unable to be specific as this date is driven by required public health benchmarks.  We do not anticipate this date being any earlier than September 8, 2020.  We will continue to provide communication and announce a specific plan to return to school as these metrics become available.

Dear Skyline Education Families –

Thank you for being patient during this unprecedented time.  As seen in previous communication, Skyline Education and its schools have decided it is in the best interest of our students and families to begin instruction online at our regularly scheduled date of August 3, 2020.  Considering the current environment, we must be very fluid in our plans in order to protect the safety of our students, teachers and staff.  We are doing our best to stay in alignment with State recommendations while continuing to develop our reopening plan that safely meets the needs of students and staff. 

Online education will continue as an option for our families throughout the school year but will be a requirement until August 17, or until students are authorized by the State to return to in-person classrooms.  Based on Governor Ducey’s press conference on July 16, we expect additional details regarding school reopening next week.

Although beginning the school year remotely may not be ideal, we are committed to delivering a high quality, rigorous education to our students 5 days per week.  Our dedicated teaching staff will deliver instruction through digital curriculum (Odysseyware K-5, Edgenuity 6-12) in conjunction with the G-Suite for Education (Google Classroom).  This instruction will include projects, assessments and ongoing regular interaction with teachers providing constant assistance to students throughout the duration of their courses. Your individual school administrators will provide a detailed schedule and protocols for interacting with teachers during your online experience.   

In order to properly plan for online education as well as in-person instruction when it is safe to return, we are asking families to select their student’s learning option once we are authorized to hold in-person classes: On campus learning or Online remote learning.  You can choose which option best fits each child in your household.  Please know that even after you have selected an option, you can change your selected learning path at defined intervals during the school year. 

Please view our 2020-2021 School Year Options to determine the best fit for your child.

– 1. You will receive a message from your school via email or text message regarding your instructional choice selection.  Please respond as soon as possible so the school can plan accordingly.  You may also click the link here to select 2020-2021 School Year Options.  Please make a selection for each registered child.

-On-campus learning once safe to return (online until such date).

-Online learning from home.

– 2. Each student in our network of schools has available access to a Chromebook device that can be checked out if you do not have a device at home.  If you choose not to check out a device now because you have one at home, don’t worry, your child will receive one when they return to campus for in-person instruction.

– 3. Skyline will also continue to provide our free school lunch program available to enrolled students once school begins. 

Thank you again for believing in Skyline Education. 
If you have specific questions regarding enrollment, please email your school campus directly at one of the emails below.

Dear Skyline Education Families –

I hope this message finds each one of you well. I would like to thank all families for believing in our wonderful team of educators to support your child in their education. I know it has been difficult lately with the surge in COVID cases as well as the uncertainty surrounding our communities opening back up and returning to normal.  As you may know, Governor Ducey signed an Executive Order to push in-person school back to August 17, 2020.  The Executive Order does allow schools to begin online and not impact their calendar.  There has also been a mandate that face masks are required by both Maricopa County and the cities in which we operate (City of Chandler and City of Phoenix). 

Our mission is to start in the least disruptive way possible.   Skyline Education and its schools have decided it’s in the best interest of our students and families to begin instruction online at our regularly scheduled date of August 3, 2020.   We determined that pushing start dates could have an adverse effect on the education of our students.  Skyline has the online education platform in place and with survey feedback received from families, we feel we can improve upon our delivery.

Skyline has developed guidelines that stress increased safety, cleaning and disinfecting, communication, and education services provided during this period.  We will be communicating more details with you the week of July 13, 2020.  Also, detailed information will be posted on our website dedicated to information on reopening schools, www.skylineschools.com/school-reopening-faq/.  You will find our school reopening guidelines (both online and in-person) and answers to frequently asked questions.

Quick information regarding opening with online instruction

– Sanitizing procedures are in place on each campus that require wiping of “high touch” areas frequently.  

– Wearing a mask is a requirement when coming to campus.

– Disposable masks are available for guests.

– Hand sanitizing stations have been installed throughout the campus.

– Each person is responsible for their health.  Please monitor your symptoms and stay home if any symptoms are present.

If you need to come to campus for any reason, please read by our current campus protocols: 

– Sanitizing procedures are in place on each campus that require wiping of “high touch” areas frequently.

If your answers will be the same for each one of your students attending, please simply list their names and complete one survey.

June 10, 2020

Dear Skyline Families,

We hope you have enjoyed a wonderful start to the summer.  As promised in previous communication, we would like to outline our initial guidelines for returning to school next year.  As we implement our opening plan, we will be surveying families in the coming weeks to ensure we have feedback on important topics related to COVID-19.  We value your feedback and know that we as a family will ensure the success of our students and staff.   

Our plan is guided by the following principles:

School will begin on July 31 for Kindergarten.  School will begin on August 3 for grades 1-12. 

Primarily all schools will be held in person on campus.  We have provided online education throughout this Pandemic and will continue to provide this opportunity moving forward. Online education from home is offered as an alternate accommodation for parents who do not want their child physically in the classroom when school begins.  Parents will be required to communicate with school leadership to ensure everything is in place prior to school start.  

Ultimately, parents should be responsible for their child’s health and well-being. Parents should monitor their child’s symptoms and keep them home if any symptoms are present. If the school notices any COVID-19 symptoms, the student will be isolated, asked to wear a mask and must be picked up from school immediately.

Parents may choose to have their child wear a mask to school, but it is not our intention to require a mask.  Students may be required to wear masks on buses.

Any staff who presents symptoms of COVID-19 will be isolated, asked to wear a mask and sent home.

All schools will clearly communicate important health and safety guidelines on campus.  Schools will ensure clear direct communication to families regarding COVID-19 related issues through our school communication system as well as our dedicated COVID-19 website page.  

All schools will do their best to ensure use of communal spaces is minimized to smaller groups and we are practicing appropriate social distancing measures. 

Each school has enhanced sanitation procedures to keep the environment safe including:

Sanitation and hygiene discussions incorporated into daily instruction with students and staff.

Onsite posters and hygiene communication will be posted throughout the campus.

Permanent hand sanitizer stations will be installed in every classroom and hallway.

High-touch surfaces will be sanitized throughout the day.

Classrooms and school grounds will be deep cleaned daily.

Please be on the lookout as we continue to finalize our comprehensive plan.  It is important to have your feedback during this process. We will be sending a survey in the coming weeks, please keep an eye out as we value your feedback. 

It is our goal to continue to provide the best educational experience possible.  We are committed to our students, staff and families always.  Thank you for believing in us, and we look forward to seeing everyone again soon.

Skyline Education remains in close communication with the Governor’s office and Arizona’s Department of Health. Should the current state of the pandemic change, we are prepared to modify the measures listed above in order to maintain safe environment for your child.

Sincerely,

Swen Anderson
President
Skyline Education, Inc.

Dear Skyline Families,

As we finish the school year, I would like to thank each one of you for your dedication to your student’s education during this challenging time. You have clearly demonstrated your unwavering commitment to patience and resiliency. 

I wish I had an answer as to what the future holds.  I know families have questions as to when things will get back to normal.  The short answer … we will take it day by day and communicate to you the plan as things become clearer in the coming weeks.  The Arizona Department of Education has convened a Re-Opening Schools Task Force that is set to distribute recommendations by the end of May.

Due to rapid developments and uncertainty regarding COVID-19, we are moving forward with plans to provide a virtual summer school to many of our students.  We will likely be opening our preschools in mid-June in order to support families who need care to get back to work. We will be strictly following CDC guidelines as it relates to Child Care and other programs.  We are still very cautious regarding COVID-19 and intend to put the safety of our staff and families as a priority.  Following ADE and CDC guidance will be critical to our success as a team.

Currently, we are planning for the 2020-2021 school year to begin per our approved calendar, Monday August 3 (July 31 for Kinder).  Although we are planning for this date, we realize the COVID-19 pandemic could bring new information that may require flexibility like what we are already experiencing. However, it is vital that we have a plan in place to ensure the safety and well-being of students and staff without compromising the high quality of education we are committed to delivering.

Skyline Administrators will be working diligently on additional policies and procedures that have risen related to the pandemic: CDC guidelines and digital teaching a learning guidelines. 

Please remain connected with your school administrators through the summer break as important information is continually shared.  You can check our website or your school Facebook for regular information. Please feel free to call or email your school if you have any questions, we are always available. 

Fear and worry are natural feelings during such times, but I encourage you to remain hopeful so we may set the example to our young students. Thank you all so very much from the bottom of my heart for believing in our organization to educate your child!  I look forward to seeing everyone’s smiling faces again soon.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and enjoy your summer!  Please go and make amazing memories with your family and friends.  

Swen Anderson, MRED 
President, Skyline Education, Inc.

Dear Skyline Families ,

Thank you so very much for being patient during this time as we identify the best ways to support you. First and foremost, I hope everyone is safe and in good health. Please stay safe and practice recommended protocols for social distancing and take steps to protect yourself by cleaning your hands often, avoid close contact, stay home if you are sick, cover coughs and sneezes and wear a mask if you are sick.

Your school Administrators and Teachers have been working diligently to establish a plan to provide food service and continuity of education. I am so thankful and impressed by the individual leadership of each person in this organization. They have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to our families.

We will begin offering food service to the community on March 23. You should have received direct information via our communication system, however, please check our website and Facebook for times and distribution centers to receive breakfast and lunch.

Skyline Education and its schools are committed to providing ALL families with ongoing education during this crisis. We will do this in two ways. Through providing online education and printed educational materials.

All links to online education will be available on our website. Parents and Teachers can go to www.skylineschools.com under “Resources” select “Access Online Learning.”  In “Access to Online Learning.”

The best method of receiving education is online. It is our mission to ensure ALL students have access to education anywhere at any time. Skyline will do everything within its power to ensure all students have access to a computer, internet and quality measurable content and resources. We understand that not all students will have access to a tablet, Chromebook or computer and internet. If you can purchase a Chromebook, please do so. If you do not have internet, please work with local providers as some are offering free resource. Administrators and Teachers will work with families on understanding each student’s needs and doing our best to support you. We are in the process of developing a plan to deploy Chromebooks to families in need. We are asking that all students who have access to resource, use their resources.

Currently, all Skyline students have logins and access to our online educational platform. Students in grades K-6 have access to our online platform Edgenuity Pathblazer. Students in grades 7-12 have access to Edgenuity. Beginning Monday or earlier, your student’s homeroom Teacher will reach out to ensure you are able to access our system. If you cannot, we will do everything to make that happen. In the meantime, please pick up printed materials. High School students will be able to earn credit through our online system if they complete the work. Please work with your teachers and Dean to ensure you are on the right track.

To access Pathblazer and Edgenuity students can utilize gaming consoles with browsers (PlayStation 3-4, Xbox One), Chromebooks, Desktop Computers, Laptops and iPads.  Android tablets will work for Edgenuity but not for Pathblazer.

CLICK HERE FOR PATHBLAZER (K-6) LOGIN TIPS.

CLICK HERE FOR EDGENUITY (7-12) LOGIN TIPS.

PRINTED MATERIALS

Pick up times for printed educational materials will be in alignment with Food Service pick up times. Skyline Education will provide an opportunity for families to drive through or walk up at several of our school sites to pick up educational materials. Please stay in your car and packets will be passed through to the driver based on the grade of the student. If you are walking, please walk up and you will receive a packet in hand.

Packets will be provided Monday March 23rd and Tuesday March 24th.
We will post notification should this time be extended.

The following schools and locations will be distribution sites for both meals and educational materials:

We encourage families to continue to be proactive in reducing the risk of COVID-19 by not congregating at the school site once packets and meals have been distributed, cleaning your hands often, avoid close contact, stay home if you are sick, cover coughs and sneezes and wear a mask if you are sick.

Again, we thank our families for being patient during this difficult time and know that your team of educational professionals is here to support you. We are a family!

Dear Families,

I know it has been a roller coaster of news over the past week and hard to determine what was coming.  I assure you; your school leaders are here to support you through this time and have been working diligently over spring break on Pandemic Response, which will come in handy as we work to transition back to school in the coming weeks.  Today, Gov. Doug Ducey and State Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman jointly announced the closure of all Arizona public schools from March 16 to March 27.  Please click below to read the link to the press release from the Governor of Arizona and the Arizona Department of Education. https://azgovernor.gov/governor/news/2020/03/governor-doug-ducey-and-superintendent-kathy-hoffman-announce-closure-arizona

School administrators, teachers and other staff are currently working remotely refining academic plans to support students remotely as well as identifying the need to nutrition from our families.  As many of you already know we have robust online systems available that we use to educate our students.  As we assess the situation, we are coming up with opportunities to ensure resources are available to students so they may continue learning.  As a student or parent, there is nothing you need to do this week.  However, please be on the lookout for communication throughout this week and next week as we begin to establish options.      

It is important now more than ever to ensure you are focusing on safe social distancing and caring for your families.  It is important as a community that we do everything we can to support one another and support in preventing the spread of this virus.  This virus can have catastrophic results to many people in our society. 

– Avoid social gatherings involving groups of 10 or more.

– Limit visits to Bars, restaurants, food courts, gyms and other venues where groups of people congregate.

– Take steps to protect yourself by cleaning your hands often, avoid close contact, stay home if you are sick, cover coughs and sneezes and wear a mask if you are sick. 

Check the CDC website https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html to view measures you can take to stay safe and see frequently asked questions. 

We will send more communication regarding education and nutrition in the coming days through our direct communication system as well as via social media and here on our website.
