Sunrise Academy will reopen on Monday, August 31st, 2020. Virtual orientations will be held in the week prior to reopening. In order to accommodate the needs of our learning community, we are planning to offer two learning options for the Fall of 2020:
Option A: Traditional Instruction
Option B: Flexible Instruction
Traditional Instruction (Option A)
We believe that the school environment provides important benefits to students that cannot be fully replicated virtually. The school has taken extensive measures to ensure that the school building is prepared for reopening in the Fall 2020 in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. We have renovated most of our bathrooms, replaced many water fountains, and installed mobile hand sanitizer stations throughout the building. School assemblies will be held outside, students will receive a daily temperature check, school personnel will wear face-masks, and the school will follow CDC and State of Florida (“the State”) guidelines regarding social distancing where possible.
Traditional instruction will continue unless the school is required by the State to move to full virtual school.
Flexible Instruction (Option B)
The school acknowledges the health concerns that many families have regarding COVID-19. For families that are reluctant to send their children back to school in the Fall of 2020, we are working with the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) to offer an alternative virtual option that we refer to as “Flexible Instruction.” This option is not the same as virtual school, and instead harnesses the power of audio-video streaming so that students can view and interact with the traditional classroom throughout the school day, five days a week. If approved, we will offer this option for Fall 2020.
If you would like to enroll in Flexible Instruction, please visit www.sunriseacademy.education > Parent & Students > Flexible Instruction Request.
Flexible Instruction is temporary for Fall 2020, or until otherwise authorized by the FLDOE.
While not ideal for everyone, these options are designed to meet the requirements of FL DOE Order No. 2020-EO-06 while accommodating the circumstances of the majority of families.
Please direct any questions or concerns to the school on (386) 775-7866.
Thank you for your continued partnership towards your child’s success.
