UPDATE (Jan. 31) -- Parents of the Coral Academy Sandy Ridge campus were notified on Friday that the full-blended learning model has been delayed a month.

The email said the number of students wanting to return had dropped from 29% a few weeks ago to 19.7% on Friday:

While preparing for students to return to campus on Monday we have encountered several challenges. The number of students who want to return is dwindling. There are currently only 166 students (Total enrollment is 844) who are scheduled to return. This is 19.7% of Sandy Ridge’s total population which was dropped from 29% in just a few short weeks.

In addition parents, teachers, and students have brought forth valid concerns about yet another change in our bell schedule. While the decisions we make together as a school community may not always align completely with all of your suggestions, please know that you are being heard and that our decisions are always made with your students’ safety, academic and emotional well-being at heart.

Full Blended Learning has been postponed until March 15, 2021 (the beginning of the 4th quarter). The current schedule will remain in place until that time. The schedule for 4th quarter has not yet been established. All students who attend in-person should bring a sack lunch and a laptop chromebook w/ charger to use throughout the day. A chromebook will be assigned to students who are not able to bring one.

We do recognize that the 166 families who opted for in person learning would still like an option for their child to be on campus so in-person learning will be made available on Wednesdays, beginning Wednesday, February 3, 2021 through Wednesday March 10, 2021. Teachers will be on campus on Wednesdays for in-person instruction. Students who remain online will join these classes remotely. This time WILL NOT be like a study hall. Students will attend their regular schedule and see their assigned teachers.
