Good afternoon SLA Families,


As promised, I want to keep you informed and up-to-speed on any and all changes with regards to school protocol and procedures.  On Tuesday, August 25th the Dept. of Health and the Sarasota County School District made changes to their SICK and COVID protocol.  I believe these changes are due to the drop in our Positivity Rate, and I hope this will be the last of the changes before the start of school on Monday.


So first let me thank you for your patience, understanding and cooperation.  I totally understand the frustration and anxiety caused with so much information and so many changes and additions.  I decided to take all the information that has been provided over the last few weeks and condense it with the current updated information to present a more comprehensive version that I hope will be easier to understand and follow.


As of now…please use this link to see the most important SLA procedures and protocols you need to know:

Our school will continue to implement all safety and health prevention and precaution protocol as stated in our reopening plan.  We will also continue to monitor and assess the current health environment and make decisions accordingly.  The goal is to safely scale back our precautionary measures and gradually return to pre-pandemic operations.


As always, please feel free to contact me with any question and concerns.  My staff and I will continue to provide your child with a safe, healthy, and high-level academic environment that promotes our core values and supports our students, families, and community.
