Dear EBA Families, 

In response to the threat of the Coronavirus, Edmund Burke Academy will close for students Wednesday, March 18, and will remain closed through the regularly scheduled Spring Break. At this time, classes are scheduled to resume Monday, April 13. All athletic practices and events have been postponed until further notice. 

The 2020-21 Registration will continue as regularly scheduled. The only change will be that registration for new families will be Monday, March 23, from 5-7p.m. without an Open House. 

 Teachers will provide learn from home lessons and will monitor student learning throughout these twelve instructional days. 

We want our children and teachers well prepared and have used yesterday and today to establish means for continuing our students’ education as much as possible over the next few weeks.

Students will utilize Google Classroom wherever applicable or complete student packets. Student Packets may be dropped off at the school on Mondays and Fridays from 8:00a.m.-3:00p.m. on the following dates: March 20, 23, 27, 30, and April 3.

Report Cards will be sent home, Tuesday, March 17.

At this time, Prom has been tentatively postponed until Friday, April 17. 

Student and Staff Attendance

It is of utmost importance for students experiencing illness to remain at home until symptoms have subsided. If experiencing symptoms related to flu or the coronavirus, please contact your healthcare provider.

Currently, EBA attendance rates remain exceptionally high. If a student is unable to attend school due to illness, upon return to school, the student should bring a parent or doctor's note. Student absences related to illness beyond the allowable number will be considered on a case by case basis because children who are ill need to stay home.

This decision is for the protection of our students, faculty and staff as well as to support statewide and nationwide efforts to slow the spread of the virus. During this time, parents and children should avoid traveling to areas of high risk and continue practicing personal hygiene recommendations and social distancing.

 We will continue to provide more information as it becomes available. Thank you again for understanding and flexibility as we continue to cope with this unprecedented challenge to our community and beyond. 

Sincerely, 

Gregg Bunn

Headmaster

Edmund Burke Academy
