Dear Summit Families, I hope you are enjoying this beautiful Saturday! I’m writing with a brief follow-up in regards to updated guidance from Governor Cooper’s stay-at-home order issued on Friday. According to the executive order, schools are considered places of essential business “for purposes of facilitating remote learning, performing critical research, or performing essential functions, provided that Social Distancing requirements set forth below of this Executive Order are maintained to the greatest extent possible.”
Following this guidance, Summit will continue to limit faculty, family, and student contact on campus and will maintain remote learning through virtual means as much as possible. If your family does not have access to internet, please let us know so we can work to arrange alternative plans.
We will limit contact on campus to the following:
For faculty without access to internet in their homes to plan and prepare remote learning for students
For administration to carry forth necessary operations of the school
For families and students to access Summit’s wireless internet from our parking lot while staying inside their vehicles
Additionally, you can find more information on free or affordable internet service offerings in North Carolina at https://www.ncbroadband.gov/covid19broadband/. Through the duration of the stay-at-home order, we will suspend our work drop-off and pick-up procedure on campus. Teachers will provide assignments and feedback virtually. If necessary, administration will mail needed work to families without internet. You can review the full details of Governor Cooper’s stay-at-home order here. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for your continued support, patience, and flexibility.
