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

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.

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.

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. 

PARENTS: Please fill out this Urgent Survey. Your participation is extremely important.
