2nd Quarter Director’s Blurb: January 2021

We are excited to welcome back all students, parents, and partners as we begin this Spring semester of 2021. KEYS Academy-Culpeper has updated our return to school policy for the first week (January 4 - January 8) in which all students and staff will participate in 100% virtual learning. This step has been taken out of an abundance of caution to attempt to ensure maximum health and safety for students and staff.

KEYS Academy-Culpeper staff has worked diligently to start this grading period with a focus on remediation for upcoming SOL’s and/or standardized assessments as many students will be testing during the month of January as a result of schedule changes caused by the pandemic. Additionally, staff is focusing on implementing fresh ideas and strategies into our Social Thinking program in effort to assist students with regulating their social/emotional well-being. Our middle school team in particular will be focusing on introducing our new CTE (career and technical education) curriculum to students throughout this Spring semester.

We are also very proud to announce that for the second consecutive school year we have now had a senior complete all the necessary coursework and SOL’s required to graduate early in December. We will continue testing for our term graduates as early as the last week in January.

KEYS Academy-Culpeper strictly follows the Culpeper County Public Schools schedule as it pertains to school closings and/or delays. Therefore, in the event of inclement weather, please consult the Culpeper County Public Schools schedule for that particular day.
