COVID-19 Review and Enrichment

    Dear Students and Parents or Guardians, 

    Your child's teachers have review and enrichment activities on their websites, Schoology, Slack, or OneNote. You might have to go into the course itself on the teacher's website or an enrichment link. Please check these places. We are attempting to reach out to all of our students and keep them involved in school at some level. Unfortunately, the Internet infrastructure of this country was not built to handle the demand of this crisis. The online learning platforms were not programmed to handle the huge demand. There is not enough band width. I know many of you are not able to get onto Schoology or load YouTube videos. I ask you to try again at a later time. We are having the same problems on our end. 

    I hope all of you are safe and healthy in every way. We will get through this together. Rest assured, we will continue to do the best we can for all students. All we can ask in return, is that you do your best, as well. Please be patient with us and with the technology  issues you are having. 

    You have been asked to take a survey letting us know your technology issues, including lack of Internet. Please reply to those surveys if you can. The survey will be conducted by your homeroom teacher. 

    Thank you and best wishes to all of you as we go through this pandemic. Feel free to email me with questions or concerns. 


    Mrs. Marie Ernst

    Mrs. Marie Ernst, Principal, and Mr. Brian Jacobs, physics and math teacher, were trained in stategic plan analysis for STEM schools through the Luzerne County Intermediate Unit 18 in the fall of 2017. We performed the analysis of the school, with the help of LIU 18, and have been working with all faculty to implement the improvements at the academy. We are working to make our school even better.
