Dear Spartanburg Preparatory School Family,Spartanburg Preparatory School Administrators would like to send a heartfelt thank you for your patience and understanding these last few weeks. We are working tirelessly to ensure we are developing a plan that keeps the safety of students and staff at the forefront while best meeting students' academic needs. Please see attached for the revised Spartanburg Preparatory School Reopening Plan. As you read and study the plan, please keep in mind the need for flexibility throughout the entire 2020-21 school year. We realize the continuing need for flexibility makes it difficult for parents to plan for childcare and supervision and understand the challenges surrounding this constantly developing situation. We ask for your continued support and understanding, as we attempt to accomplish our two goals of educating our students and caring for their health and safety. Also, please see below for some very important information pertaining to the Spartanburg Preparatory School 2020-2021 school year.
Due to the timing of the release of information from the SCDE, we have decided to revise the 2020-2021 school calendar. The new start date will be Tuesday, August 18th for all students. Please see the school calendar link above.
AM/PM assignments will be sent via email to those who have chosen the face-to face option on Monday, July 27th. If you have not received your child's assignment by July 27th at 5pm, please call the front office Tuesday, July 28th after 8am.
Changes to Learning Model ChoiceDue to the revisions that had to be made to the Reopening Plan Draft, everyone will have an opportunity to change their Learning Model Choice.
Five Additional School Days for Students (Learn, Evaluate, Analyze, Prepare Days - LEAP Days) LEAP Days will be held the week of August 3rd and will be used primarily to administer beginning of the year assessments that are required by the SC General Assembly. We will schedule students to attend according to their testing schedules and notify parents with more detailed information soon.
We recognize this is a very trying time and understand there may be many questions and concerns. To help answer your questions and address your concerns, we will host a Town Hall via Zoom on Thursday, July 30th beginning at 6:00pm. Please see the attached flyer for more information. The Zoom information will be sent out prior to the meeting.
There will be an opportunity for sports during the 2020-2021 school year. We will follow the requirements established by the SC High School League (SCHSL).
