Dear Parents, Students, Staff, School districts and Transportation teams:
I send you this letter to inform you that Innovations Academy will be making up the Emergency/ No School/ Snow days from last week’s Polar Vortex Inclement Weather that occurred on Monday, Jan. 28, Wed and Thursday, Jan 30-31st 2019. Due to those No School attendance days because of the weather, Innovations Academy will be in session on Friday, February 15, 2019, on Friday, March 1, 2019, and on Tuesday, May 28 2019. Please disregard the original school calendar that indicates February 15 and March 1 as originally being a non-attendance day for students due to the staff development day. We will be using February 15, 2019, March 1 2019, and May 28 2019 as a regular full day of school for all students as our make-up days for the non-attendance days that occurred last week. I want to thank you in advance for your flexibility and understanding, and know that I greatly appreciate your support. Wishing you a great rest of the week and year. Feel free to contact the school with questions.

Dr. Ariel Correa

Queridos padres, estudiantes, personal, distritos escolares, y equipos de transportación:
Les mando esta carta para informarles que la Academia Innovaciones va a reemplazar el día de emergencia / de la nieve donde no hubo escuela los tres días de la semana pasada, lunes, 28 de enero, miércoles y jueves, 30 y 31 de enero. Como muchos de ustedes se recordarán, La Academia Innovaciones tuvo que cerrar sus puertas debido a la tormenta invernal que se produjo la semana pasada, La Academia Innovaciones estará en sesión el viernes, 15 de febrero de 2019, 1ro de marzo de 2019, y 28 de mayo de 2019. Por favor no tomen en cuenta el calendario escolar que indica originalmente que el 15 de febrero y el 1ro de marzo eran días de falta de asistencia para los estudiantes debido a la jornada de desarrollo personal. Utilizaremos esos días, el 15 de febrero, 1ro de marzo, y 28 de mayo del 2019 como un día regular de la escuela para todos los estudiantes. Les doy las gracias anticipadas por su flexibilidad y entendimiento y quiero que sepan que yo les agradezco mucho su comprensión. Les deseo una buena semana y resto del año escolar. Favor en comunicarse con la escuela si tienen preguntas.
