Distance Learning 2.0 in Action
August 13, 2020
The focus of our learning programs for the beginning of the school year has been to build a sense of community within each group. Teachers are doing this in a variety of ways, mostly by implementing activities that enable them to get to know each student individually and also helping students get to know each other. Time has also been spent developing shared agreements about how Zoom classes will operate, and how students can make use of the various technical programs offered.

Thank you for your support and participation as we began the 2020-2021 school year virtually this week. Even via Zoom, it was wonderful to see so many smiling faces again. The major intent this first week was to build community and to get the technical systems in place. Please communicate with us if you are experiencing any difficulties.
Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!

I am writing to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year. As you are aware, we are opening the year in our distance learning program. This decision will be reconsidered by the EAB Board at three week intervals. We are hopeful that conditions will eventually allow us to reopen the campus in our blended learning mode. However, with Coronavirus cases high and still rising in the Federal District, it is not safe to do so at this time.

We are now less than two weeks away from the opening of the 2020-2021 school year and I am writing to provide you with some updates on our progress and plans. As we have stated in our EAB Reunites document, we have prepared to facilitate teaching and learning in three distinct modes based on the pandemic conditions at the time.
EAB Reunites Updates: Distance Learning 2.0
July 24, 2020
As the beginning of the 2020/21 school year is not far away, I thought it would be timely to write to you with some more information about our plans for implementing distance learning for the first three weeks of the school year, from August 3--August 21. As you know, the EAB Board and Leadership team made a decision to prioritise the health and safety of everyone in our community, and open the school in distance learning. While we acknowledge that distance learning is not as ideal as being face-to-face with our students, we know that we have a good system and are determined to provide the best possible opportunity for each student.
News and Updates from EAB
June 19, 2020
Today I am writing to you to share some of the thinking and planning that the EAB Leadership team are doing regarding the start of the 2020/21 school year, on Monday 3 August. Unfortunately nothing is certain in this new environment that we are operating under and the "new normal" calls for a great deal of flexibility.
