ESA is taking advantage of our small class sizes and open spaces to engage in in-person learning.
This school year, we have two main priorities in mind:
the safety of our students and faculty, our families, and the Acadiana community
and the mission of ESA to instill in students the habits of scholarship and honor whether we are on-campus, in a hybrid learning environment, or once again Beyond the Oaks.
We all have a role in keeping ourselves and those around us safe. When we all cooperate with the protocols in this guide, we're taking steps to ensure that we can stay on campus throughout the school year.
If you travel, please carefully follow the CDC guidelines to keep yourself and your family safe: always wear a mask in public, keep 6 feet of distance between yourself and others, wash/sanitize your hands frequently and avoid touching your face.
ESA is following the guidelines of LDoE Strong Start 2020, the CDC, AAP, LHSAA, and the Episcopal diocese.
ESA faculty and staff spent this summer preparing for all of the different scenarios we may encounter this fall. The Online Learning Committee dug deep into research and resources about virtual learning and developed a plan for an enhanced and expanded ESA Beyond the Oaks in the event we move to partial or fully online learning. Teachers have collaborated to share apps, programs, and other resources for both in-person and online learning. And our technology team has invested in classroom webcams and document cameras to give teachers the tools they need for flexibility and consistent learning.
