Dear Sharp Park Academy Families, The 20-21 school year is upon us, and while in these extraordinary times we are experiencing a lot of changes, one thing remains the same: at Sharp Park Academy we are looking forward to welcoming your student and family back to school and providing the best educational experiences possible. For our veteran SPA kids, we have missed you and can’t wait to see you again! We are also ready to welcome new enrollments to Sharp Park Academy and enrollment paperwork can be located on our website at https://registration.jpsk12.org/apply/. As always, we are committed to success for your student and confident that this is going to be another amazing year at Sharp Park Academy. #SPAtheHYPEstartshere! Over the summer months, we have been hard at work planning and preparing in eager anticipation of returning to school. The Sharp Park Academy Return to Learn plans, under the district Return to Learn plan ensures continuity within JPS schools, adheres to CDC safety recommendations, maintains high standards for rigorous and robust academic experiences using a flipped classroom model for hybrid instruction, and flexibility that allows us to move forward with increasing face to face instruction, or to return to a completely digital format should the need arise. Jackson Public Schools will be returning to school under Phase 4. There are several elements of the instructional model that will look different: Staggered face to face attendance will allow us to reduce the number of students in each classroom to be consistent with social distancing guidelines. Therefore, students will be divided into group A with a face to face meeting on Monday and Tuesday and group B a face to face meeting on Thursday and Friday. Wednesdays will be used for building sanitation and teacher planning.
