Office Hours 7:30 am – 3:30 pm

Summit Academy THS Families,
The SAM Board of Education and Management company have made the decision that ALL Summit Schools will begin the year with remote learning that will continue through the first nine weeks. We will let you know details of the orientation meetings as soon as we have them scheduled.
We appreciate your flexibility with this situation and know that we have the safety and wellbeing of our Summit Families at the heart with this decision. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

Good afternoon! Normally at this time of year we would be planning for our first in person parent meeting. However, due to the pandemic and our current remote learning plan, we felt that this would not be in the best interest of families and staff at this time. Please join us for a virtual parent meeting on Monday 10/19/2020 starting at 6:30pm. At the bottom of this email you will find Mrs. May’s Zoom meeting link.

By clicking on this google link  you will be taken to a Google form with several questions. Although we have information that we want to share that night, we also want to give you an opportunity to ask any questions that you may have so that we can also address your concerns. Even if you think you may not be able to attend that night, we still welcome you to fill out the questionnaire and provide your feedback!  We ask that you fill it out by 10/14/2020 so that we have time to review the responses and plan accordingly.

We hope that you will plan to join us!
