TLC Charter Chatter – Monday Sept 21st, 2020

TLC Charter Chatter


A Message from the Director –

Thank you to all the parents and staff who attended the meeting regarding the waiver to open Primary.  Thank you for all the feedback you gave in the survey this week as well.  We are now in the process of requesting a waiver.  The waiver process takes at least two weeks.  We are looking at a possible reopening around October 1 to the 5th.  

Now that we have the survey data which appears to have half wishing to return and half wishing to remain virtual, we need to know who the students are.  We are trying to keep the students with at least one of the teachers in their assigned classrooms.  (Remember our Primary students are in a room with three teachers, who work with all of the students).  We cannot make those decisions, however until we know who will be coming back in person and who will not.

Thank you for your attention to this.  If you have questions our presentation did not answer, you may call the school and ask to speak to me.

I am excited at the thought of returning to school.  I am also glad that it appears that we can accommodate all of our parents with an either-or choice… this choice is available until all schools are open and all students are back. Our charter does not allow us to be a virtual school for students once we are all back in session.  But for now, this is a great way to start back.


We have had almost 300 responses to our PCS in-person learning option.  Thank you for your feedback, it is invaluable as we look at every aspect of reopening our doors to students.

Our application has been submitted and we will be working with the County Health Department over the next 2 weeks to make sure we are doing everything we can to ensure safety.

Obviously, this is a very fluid time and things change from week to week but we will continue to work with all parties involved and make sure everything is communicated to you.

The next step is getting concrete information about which students would like to return to campus if permitted*.

Please complete the following form.  You must complete 1 form for each student.  We need to know who will remain online vs who will be on campus.
