****** IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE TAMC BOARD OF DIRECTORS ******

MARCH 28th 2020

Parents and students,

 

Due to the COVID-19 Virus, it is officially confirmed that the EOG’s and Check-ins have been cancelled for the 2019-2020 year. All final grades will be based on pass/fail.

 

Parents, please continue to work with your children at home until the official end of our school year.

Governor Cooper Orders All Schools Shut Down Through May 15, 2020

 

To all TAMC Families, I hope everyone is staying healthy! 

I wanted to reach out to all of our families to say thank you for the academic support they are providing to their children. The staff has been and will continue to ensure that their students are receiving academic support through various educational platforms to complete during this time away from school. 

Parents, please remember our students are three quarters through the school year, therefore they are not going to lose the academic gains they have made this year. 

Teachers will continue to provide weekly academic work and the last thing we want is for students to panic and become anxious during this “new normal” time. Depending upon the age and grade level, student work will look different. Please remember that a six hour academic school day looks different than working with your child one on one. Home academics should be completed in short increments not to exceed two to three hours per day. Also, this is a great opportunity for parents to teach their children the basic life skills that they will need to be successful in everyday life. 

Thank you for your continued support as we move forward and we will continue to keep everyone informed through class dojo, the TAMC website, the All-Call messages, as well as the TAMC PTO Facebook page. Pease stay healthy and safe!

Ms. Allyson Schoen, Director

Staff and Students,

The Board of Directors and the Director of the Academy of Moore County are continuing to monitor the current situation and are following the guidance provided by the State of North Carolina. We understand you may have questions, and we are working to keep you informed.  We will send out updates as we receive them, and will provide those updates through Class Dojo, the TAMC website, all calls, and the PTO Facebook page.

At the time of this message there has been no additional direction from the State on when students can return to school.  But we are working on ways to continue teach and learning. Next week we will start online learning to ensure that students stay engaged. Please make sure that you are connected with Class Dojo so your teacher can guide you through the process and can provide you additional resources as we adapt to this learning platform. The staff has been working very hard on moving us to a digital platform and is prepared to provide this distance learning for as long as it’s needed. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us through the email addresses for the grade-level team leaders or the Board of Directors that are posted on the TAMC website (Click here). We hope you all are staying safe and we hope to see you very soon! 

 

TAMC Board of Directors

 

MARCH 14th 2020

Effective today, March 14th 2020, Governor Roy Cooper has issued an executive order closing all public schools in the State of North Carolina for a period of two (2) weeks.  The Academy of Moore County is a public charter school, and we will follow this mandate.  

 

TAMC will be closed for the entire weeks of March 16th and March 23rd, with plans to reopen to staff and students on Monday, March 30th.  This closure INCLUDES the STEM Enrichment Camp scheduled for the week of 3/16. 

 

The Board  of Directors will hold an emergency meeting on Monday March 16th to address all related issues, (including camp cancellation items) and additional communication will be shared with you immediately thereafter.  Our primary goal is to care for the welfare of TAMC students, staff and families during this challenging time.  

 

Please note (again per the Governor’s executive order) that our building is closed.   Because of this, we are not able to field your phone calls to the school at this time.  Official TAMC communication will come to you from postings to our website, shared info to the TAMC PTO for posting on their social media sites, and via school wide All-Call messages.  

 

Should you need to speak with someone in the meantime, please use the following (monitored) email address:  board@academyofmoorecounty.org Someone will respond to you as soon as possible.

 

We appreciate your support and your patience during this highly fluid situation which includes many items outside of our immediate control.   We ask that you please continue to monitor all available resources for public health and safety, and take the best steps possible to protect your families during this time.
