Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: Arrow Academy Campuses Closed Through May 1st

Update 4/1/2020 

Dear Arrow Academy Family,  
 
The Governor of Texas declared Texas schools must remain closed until Friday, May 1st. Arrow Academy has tentatively scheduled Monday, May 4, 2020, as the first day of in-class instruction. However, the district will continue to mobilize efforts to provide students with remote and digital learning experiences. This is a fluid situation and the school district leadership team will reevaluate the closure during the week of April 27th and keep you informed via School Messenger, website, and social media. 

Over the past couple of weeks, Arrow Academy teachers have been delivering digital and remote instruction and/or workbooks or classroom packets for learning. The plan is to continue to offer these learning opportunities for our students. We ask for your patience and understanding as our team continues to navigate the many details of this unprecedented situation. If you have any questions or concerns regarding online learning, please reach out to your child’s teacher. If you do not have internet access, please go to www.arrowacademy.org and learn how you can get free internet services for qualified households. 
 
The health and well-being of Arrow Academy students, staff and our community remains the unrelenting priority of Arrow Academy. We will continue providing the Grab and Go Meals program as well as school supplies, workbooks, and online and remote learning opportunities for all of our scholars. Coming soon, we will offer our scholars Chromebooks to use at home.

If you have not already done so, please complete the re-enrollment process for the 2020-2021 school year to ensure you remain eligible for all of the services that we provide to families. Please go to www.arrowacademy.org, scroll down the page and click on the Re-Enrollment for Current Students button. Thank you for your continued partnership and your sacrifice during this time. We miss the students so much and appreciate your support.

March 17, 2020

 

Dear Arrow Academy Family:

Arrow Academy Houston area campuses will remain closed to students through Friday, April 10, 2020.  Arrow Academy Bryan, TX campus will remain closed to students through Friday April 3, 2020. We will then make decisions about additional days of school closures on a weekly basis as needed.  However, the district will continue to mobilize efforts to provide students with varied at home learning opportunities and digital learning experiences.
 
To close school was a difficult decision that was made in an effort to support the state and nation’s need to flatten the exposure curve associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Our region has continued to see an increasing number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 and health officials report that this number is expected to increase, as more testing is made available.

 
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has outlined the need for all communities to implement a social distancing protocol. Additionally, the federal government has provided a recommendation that the community should limit group gatherings. In light of these factors, and additional guidance from local, state and national authorities, we feel that this is the most appropriate decision for our students, staff, families and our community as a whole. 
 
Over the coming days, Arrow Academy instructional team and teachers will finalize plans as they prepare for long-term delivery of varied instructional options to meet the needs of our students. Your child’s campus will be reaching out to share details about how to access these lessons and learning opportunities for students. We ask for your patience and understanding as our team continues to navigate the many details of this unprecedented situation.  
 
Please continue to monitor your email as well as Arrow Academy’s website and social media for more information on campus closures, varied options of instructional delivery, details about our food service programs available for students and the reenrollment process for the 2020-2021 school year.  
 
Thank you for making Arrow Academy your school of choice. Please be assured that we remain deeply committed to the safety and well-being of our students, teachers, staff members, families, and our community as a whole.

Update 3/12/2020 5:30 pm

Dear Arrow Academy Family, 
 
Thank you for your ongoing partnership with Arrow Academy.  We really do appreciate that we are your school of choice!
 
Throughout the week, Arrow Academy has monitored the Coronavirus crisis to ensure district decisions are informed by the most valid and up-to-date information from prevailing medical, scientific, and governmental officials. Please be assured that we remain deeply committed to the safety and well-being of our students, staff members, families, and our community as a whole.  
 
In light of recent updates, Arrow Academy officials have made the difficult decision to close schools for the following week, March 16, 2020 - March 20, 2020.  We feel that this extended closure will provide an opportunity to gain a better understanding of how the Coronavirus will impact our community and allow time to heed the advice of various authorities to limit the spread of the virus as we continue to work in close partnership with governmental and medical authorities.
 
As part of these measures:
•    All Arrow Academy Campuses will be closed for the week of Monday, March 16 – Friday, March 20, 2020
•    Postponement of campus events (i.e., Campus Open Houses, field trips etc.) until further notice.

We are asking that parents monitor e-mail accounts for updates from Arrow Academy. Arrow Academy’s faculty and staff members are asked to monitor their district email accounts and remain in contact with supervisors for specifics about job responsibilities for the coming week. 
 
We understand that any decision will be met with varied opinions; however, please know we are working diligently to make the decisions that are in the best interest of those we are called to serve.  Arrow Academy officials will remain in continued contact with relevant authorities to ensure ongoing decisions are in the best interest of students, staff members, and our community. Additional updates will be shared through Arrow Academy’s website, School Messenger, and Arrow Academy’s social media accounts.
 
Thank you for your ongoing partnership with Arrow Academy.
