IPoly Principal's Immediate Response
SCHOOL CLOSURE EXTENDED TO THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR
IPOLY will Provide Online Instruction through June
April 10, 2020
Dear IPoly Family,
As many may have heard, Superintendent Dr. Duardo announced her recommendation for LACOE schools to remain physically closed through the end of the academic year. This recommendation aligns with messages by Governor Gavin Newsom and State Superintendent Tony Thurmond that while campuses may be closed, school will remain in session and learning will continue.
In the best interest of safety and health, IPoly will adopt these recommendations and suspend in-person classes for the duration of the school year. We will still conduct online classes during normal school hours and provide additional training and support to faculty to strive for the highest-quality instruction possible.
LACOE, working closely with IPoly's leadership, is developing a response to a range of issues including graduation, grading, special education, reopening of schools, and summer school offerings. As these plans unfold, I will communicate any important information to you as soon as I know.
This comes as another setback for all of us in an already difficult time. We are all eager to reconnect and work. Know that our hearts are with you, and that we are always available by email to offer support, guidance, and resources. If you need emotional support or coping tools, please reach out to school psychologist Teresa Duez at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also recommend accessing the CDC's resources on managing stress and coping.
In the meantime, know that all of us at IPoly are committed to providing a healthy learning routine and doing what we can to offer as many positive experiences as possible for the remainder of the year.
Stay healthy, stay connected, and find ways to help others.
Ginger Merritt-Paul, IPoly High School Principal
