Forward Together 2020-2021
The 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is an unprecedented event that has impacted every part of the globe. Pennsylvania has taken equally unprecedented measures to save lives and ensure the safety of its citizens. As the global spread of COVID-19 continues to evolve, Avon Grove Charter School is committed to ensuring the safety, security, and wellness of our students and staff. We remain vigilant in our efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and strongly encourage our families to follow good hygiene practices and to reinforce them with their children.
During th 2020-2021 school year, we have been in continuous contact with the Chester County Health Department, Chester County Intermediate Unit, and a wide variety of other government, educational, and health agencies. We worked diligently this summer to develop plans for moving Forward Together safely while providing an outstanding education for our students. Please download and review these plans for all of the details you'll need for the school year.
Staying Safe During the Holiday Season
Our Chester County Commissioners and Health Department have released a newsletter with an excellent guideline, to help us stay safe while celebrating Thanksgiving and the December holidays. Together, we can stop the upward climb of COVID-19 cases, which will give our schools, restaurants, and businesses a fair chance of remaining open. Please take a few minutes to review these recommendations and have a happy, healthy holiday season!
COVID-19: Be Informed - Do Your Part
We're surrounded by an overwhelming amount of information about the global pandemic – the news, social media, emails – pretty much everywhere you look! These are some of the websites and informational flyers that we've found helpful in navigating COVID-19.
Our Teachers are Learning, Too!
Our outstanding teachers have been diligently preparing to help our students learn safely in a hybrid model. We'd like to share with you a video Mrs. Bishop made to encourage our staff to remain flexible as we move forward, welcoming our friends back to the classroom. Our AGCS families are certainly curious about how this is going to look and feel! In this video, Mrs. Ham shares part of her day with us and gives our teachers some tips on making hybrid education a great expereience for our students.
