Good Afternoon Parents and Guardians, Beginning Friday August 27, 2021 School of Dreams Academy will move into a remote learning environment and will continue through Friday September 10, 2021. Barring any significant changes to the current health order, normal in-person classes will resume on Monday September 13, 2021. This decision is directly related to the recent increases in COVID cases, throughout our community, and the increased number of SODA students and staff needing to quarantine. Due to all these circumstances, SODA has made the decision to voluntarily move into remote learning. We are in contact with the NM Public Education Department and are following all the protocols set forth in the COVID-19 toolkit. On Friday August 27, 2021, staff will begin conducting classes virtually. For students that are unable to join class virtually, arrangements can be made to pick up learning packets and/or projects for the next two weeks by contacting your student’s advisory/homeroom teacher, this is your point of contact. Their advisory/homeroom teacher will work within protocols and inform other teachers. Tomorrow's Extended Learning Day will be postponed to a later date. We will follow the regular Friday schedule with no Spartan Quest for secondary students. Spartan Quest activities will be put on hold till we return on September 13th as will all after school programs, unless you meet virtually. Our food service company is working out details for providing meals during this remote time. More than likely it will look similar to what we did last school year. Meal schedules will be available on our website and social media platforms. Please download our app, School of Dreams Academy, to get updated information as it comes. The safety of our students and our staff is our first priority. We appreciate your support and patience as we navigate through creating a safe educational experience for each of our S.O.D.A family members.

Another back to school ready tip! With school starting again also comes the dreaded homework. Try to set up a dedicated homework spot in the house that is stocked with all your student's needs for homework (paper, pencils, etc). It also helps if they have a consistent homework time, like right when they get home or after dinner. Make sure this spot and time are as free of distractions as they can possibly be to help students just focus on homework without being distracted by tv or other happenings.
