Update to parents from the headmaster 4/3/2020

Dear Parents,

I hope this note finds each of you healthy and well in these challenging times. Everyone in the Admiral Farragut Academy community is demonstrating remarkable resilience, strength, and agility in the midst of this global pandemic. I have received numerous reports by parents of people in our Farragut Community going above and beyond for each other.

As we come to the end of our first week of distance learning I have some important updates in addition to several reminders:

  1. Admiral Farragut will comply with the governor’s mandate of extending the distant learning timeframe to April 30th. So please make appropriate plans to continue until that date at the very least. We will keep you updated as we move forward.
  2. A short survey will be sent to you at the end of next week for you to provide important feedback to the school in relation to your child’s experience with his/her’s online learning environment. We are in this together and we want to ensure we are meeting the needs of each student.
  3. Next week we will continue to follow our original school calendar by taking the Spring Weekend off from online schooling. Friday, April 10th, and Monday, April 13th, we will not hold school or academic time.

Once again, I applaud our entire school community for making this unforeseen transition to distant learning as smooth as possible. We continue to be here for our students and hope you are well and stay safe and healthy.
