ST. ANN EDUCATION CONTINUED UNINTERRUPTED DURING THE COVID-19 CLOSURES
As a small private school, we have the flexibility to change course quickly and adapt to new situations. Therefore, we were ready to convert to a virtual platform immediately upon learning of the stay-at-home order. Teachers quickly assessed student household access to Wi-Fi and devices to ensure an equal opportunity for online learning across the school population. Every 4th – 8th Grade SAS student had a school-provided Chromebook and experience using Google Classroom with their teachers. Additional devices were assigned to families who needed them. We added in the IXL curriculum, to be used in tandem with iReady, Class Dojo, and Google Classroom. Additionally, our teachers were available for virtual parent meetings and tutoring so that no one would fall behind and could ensure a smooth transition back to in-person instruction.
THE 2020/21 SCHOOL YEAR IS UNDERWAY AT SAS!
Now that we are back for the new school year, we made certain that EVERY St. Ann student has their own school-assigned device. We do have students learning face-to-face in the classroom and others who opted to remain at home for e-learning during the first trimester. E-learning opportunities are available at every grade level, and some classes also have room for additional in-person students. Call for availability: 708.895.1661.
ALTERNATIVES TO AN ON-CAMPUS VISIT
Although we can’t offer in-person tours while school is in session, we would still like to meet you and your students and answer all your questions! Our Admissions Office is open for business and can provide you with all the information you need about St. Ann School.
