Message From The Superintendent
March 23, 2020
Dear Gateway Charter Academy Families,
I just wanted to touch base with each of you to assure you that we at Gateway Charter Academy are continually monitoring the COVID-19 information and guidance provided by Texas Education Agency (TEA), Center for Disease Control (CDC), and local health officials. Our top priority is the health and safety of our students, staff, parents, and community.
Our Gateway administrative team will be working today to prepare a short term, as well as long-term, plan in the event additional days away are needed. In our planning meeting, we will be addressing a wide variety of issues including instructional needs and feeding students should an extended break be deemed necessary. I assure you that we will keep you updated with information as we receive it. I ask that you please be patient, as the information we receive is fluid and ever-changing.
Parents, please do not worry over your student(s) “making up time or days” because of an extended break(s). The extended break is covered by built-in minutes in the existing school calendar. After Monday’s planning session, we will have an “at-home instruction” plan which will qualify for school days for any future extensions that are deemed necessary. Again, please be patient as plans could change as guidance changes from the Texas Education Agency (TEA), local Health and Safety departments, and the CDC.
During this time, please continue to focus on health and safety by limiting your exposure to possible infection.
** Meals will be provided at the elementary campus located at (6103 University Hills Blvd Dallas TX.) beginning Monday March 23rd from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm and 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm M-F for all of our students free of charge.**
Again, thank you for your patience during this process and remember we care about YOU at Gateway Charter Academy and are working diligently to help promote your health and safety.
Dr. Moore, Superintendent
