Greetings from iPLANETS ACADEMY! As I write this, I am reflecting back to that fateful day on March 16, 2020 when we made the painful, but necessary decision to close our doors so our families could be safe. Since that time, we have transitioned to a new location located in the greater metro Dallas Fort Worth area. We have missed all the children and will miss them even more since we have relocated. We are excited about this new chapter ahead though, we can't wait to enroll, and get back to learning with friends.
Our hope is that we will return to school with our full STREAMS scheduling of our robust D.I.C.E. academic, athletic, educational field trips, character, and service building learning. While that is our sincere desire, we have been tirelessly preparing for all possibilities, working diligently to ensure that we keep our families, our children and families safe, while also fulfilling our mission to educate the whole child -- mind, body, and spirit.
We have implemented safety precautions, have all been fully vaccinated, upgraded technology, bolstered sanitation measures, and created detailed plans for a variety of learning scenarios -- all with the goal of hitting the ground running in and remaining in stride no matter what circumstances we face during this upcoming school year.
As always, I pledge to you my transparency as we move forward. Thank you for your continued prayers, support, and trust as we partner together for the good of our school and future students. We look forward to a great year together.
iPLANETS ACADEMY upcoming 2021-2022 membership enrollment will be VERY LIMITED to minimize and help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We will keep updating the community and working with community members, healthcare workers, and the CDC to gather input.
Right now, vaccination remains the most effective way to protect you and your family against COVID-19. Based on this knowledge, we are only accepting children who are living in the home with FULLY vaccinated adults. In order to enroll and become a member, parents or guardians will be required to show proof of their vaccinations.
Parents who come to enroll in person will be required to wear masks. After enrollment, parents will be signing their child in and out at the front entrance. Only the child will be able to enter inside for classes until further notice.
When they are sitting at their desk there will be a partition separating each child from each other. When they stand up from their desks for whatever reason, they will be required to wear a mask until they return to their desks. All eating will be at tables with partitions as well. The only time we may not don masks is when we are outside at the playground (depending on the level of other children there).
There are two WeGuard HEPA Air Purifiers stationed in two areas of the classroom. This air Purifier is a 3-Stage Filtration System: HEPA air purifier with a combination of pre-filter, activated carbon filter and true HEPA filter which effectively removes 99. 97% of airborne particles that are as small as 0. 3 microns. With it’s UV Light, H13 True HEPA Filter Removes 99.97% of Hair, Fur, Dust, Bacteria, Viruses, Smoke, Mold, Pollen, Allergens, Odor, Quiet Mode, Ozone Free.
Any questions concerning this policy put in place to keep all our children safe, please contact us. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause, but safety is our primary concern.
