Message from the CEO

Posted by PA Distance Learning on 8/16/19 2:39 PM

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year!

By blending our school day through online group live classes with independent parent facilitated time for learning, our families have flexibility in the school day. When parents and school staff communicate openly and consistently, children benefit in reaching unimaginable achievements. The road of learning is not always the easy walking path; sometimes it feels like a marathon for an out of shape non-runner like me. Know in your heart and mind that when our dedicated team of teachers, counselors, and support staff come together with our parents, there will be water breaks, walking sticks for support, a compass for direction, and a tremendous cheering crowd each day. Together, your child will learn online beginning August 26, 2019.
