Dear Academy Charter Family,

Governor Murphy has ordered all schools to remain on Remote/Virtual Learning until the end of our school year.  All school activities are canceled during this closure.  More information about school events will be shared in the near future.

It is very important that students continue to log into their classes for attendance tracking, complete assignments, and to remain active learners.  By doing this, students will put themselves in position to grow as learners and pass classes.

I truly appreciate everyone’s effort and patience during these unique circumstances.  We are managing the unprecedented times together and we will get through this. Please stay positive and continue to work hard.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Stay Safe. Be Well. Live Your Dream.
