Breaking Update: School Closed Starting Monday, 3/16

Following the recommendation from Governor Brian Kemp, Atlanta Public Schools just announced that APS schools will closed starting on Monday, March 16th, for an extended leave.  The leave is anticipated to last for at least two weeks and potentially extend beyond Spring Break.  In keeping with APS’s decision, Drew Charter School will also close beginning Monday, March 16th.   Drew Charter School will be open tomorrow, March 13th, for full instruction.  A dry-run of Drew’s E-learning process with staff and students was already scheduled for tomorrow.  We will continue with that plan tomorrow as we prepare to implement full scale E-Learning Days starting next Monday.  Please anticipate an E-Learning update tomorrow.  In the meantime, we encourage you to review the E-learning Days guidelines, which have been previously shared with you.   Please click here to view the guidelines.

For questions or concerns about the social, emotional or well-being of your child, yourself, or your family, please contact your child’s counselor and/or our school social worker, as they are available to offer support.  Their email addresses are here.

For all other questions, or if you are not sure who to ask, please email your academy dean or principal here

As a reminder, on tomorrow, Drew will implement all of the precautions in the Coronavirus Update sent earlier this afternoon. 

Thank you for your continued understanding and support as this situation continues to evolve.
