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.
