Allentown, PA, May 20, 2020 --(PR.com
)-- Although school may be closed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, students at Executive Education Academy Charter School in Allentown still have the opportunity to hear from their teachers and school leaders. EEACS has taken its daily 8am assemblies virtual with Facebook live. Every morning, a school executive or teacher reads the announcements and gives students and their parents an update on the latest school news. During the meetings, important updates on school safety measures are also discussed.
“We needed some way to maintain a connection with our students and their families,” says Robert Lysek, founder and CEO of the Lehigh Valley charter school. “These assemblies in the morning give us a way to interact with our school community at a time when physical interaction is impossible.”
Team meetings for various grades are also taking place online. These virtual meetings have lessened the strain this transition out of the classroom has had on some students. Meanwhile, teachers are providing virtual instruction and study help over Zoom.
“We look forward to schools reopening next year so we can see our students again,” adds Lysek.
The Allentown charter school has put together a page containing important school updates and information on COVID-19. Visit https://ee-schools.org/about/coronavirus/ regularly to stay informed.
