Dear Parents, Faculty, and Staff:
Given the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, Effective Friday, April 17 at noon, Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order declaring that ALL TEXAS schools will remain closed for the duration of this school year.
Universal Academy will extend the suspension of normal district operations through Friday, May 29, 2020 in an effort support our nation’s need to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, or COVID-19. We will continue our Online Learning Platform until the end of the school year.
Estimados padres, facultad y personal:
Dada la rápida evolución de la situación con COVID-19, a partir del viernes 17 de abril al mediodía, el gobernador Greg Abbott emitió una orden ejecutiva que declara que TODAS las escuelas de TEXAS permanecerán cerradas durante este año escolar.
Teacher Appreciation Week is May 4th-8th at Universal Academy. We’d like to invite all students and parents to show extra gratitude to teachers and school staff during Teacher Appreciation Week. Participation is optional. Our goal is to make our teachers feel extra special during this week even though we are unable to be together!
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) continues to work with the Office of the Governor, Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and the Texas Division of Emergency Management (TDEM) to coordinate and plan the state’s response to COVID-19. TEA’s role in these efforts is to help coordinate the flow of information from the state to districts, help districts solve problems, and provide guidance that will aid in districts’ decision-making.
As you have heard, Universal Academy is implementing a distance learning platform for educational services beginning March 24, 2020. The majority of this learning will take place through digital media depending upon individual student and family needs.
Beginning Tuesday, March 24, 2020 all Universal Academy students will begin online learning at home while our buildings are closed. Currently, all campuses will be closed through April 3, 2020. However, the situation continues to be fluid, and this may change.
To access online learning plans, Universal Academy Teachers will email online weekly assignments to parents and students during the school closing period. Students should have access to their online accounts. Please email your child’s teacher if you do not have access. You will find your teachers’ at the link below.
If we work together, fewer of our friends and family will be affected by the coronavirus. Hospitals won’t be overloaded and lives will be saved.
Si trabajamos juntos, habrá menos de nuestros amigos y familiares afectados por el coronavirus. Los hospitales no estarán llenos y se salvarán más vidas.
Universal Academy will be closing for an undetermined amount of time. Although our school buildings are not open, we will facilitate continuous learning opportunities for our students through our online format.
Parents will receive weekly emails from their child’s teachers regarding the online learning format. These emails will give you informational updates and weekly assignments. Please check on your friends to make sure they are receiving daily emails.
On March 16, 2020, Governor Abbott announced that all STAAR and EOC Testing Requirements for the 2019-2020 school year have been waived.
