COVID-19 and Influenza *UPDATE 3/15
An update of the letter from Mr. Edgar regarding the COVID-19 virus.
March 15, 2020
Dear TCCA Families, Faculty, and Staff:
As most of our families are still digesting my letter from yesterday, Saturday, March 14th with its announcement of our using Friday, March 20th as a teacher preparation day, we now have a new development to which we must respond.
Governor Sununu has a few hours ago mandated that all New Hampshire schools be closed effective tomorrow, Monday March 16th as teachers begin preparing for online lesson delivery which will begin on Monday, March 23rd. This obviously accelerates TCCA’s previous plan to use Friday, March 20th to prepare for online lesson delivery.
In cooperation with our Governor’s directive, we will close TCCA effective Monday, March 16, and our teachers will prepare for online lesson delivery beginning Monday March 23rd. Although this is a far more abrupt schedule than we had anticipated, it will have the benefit of providing our teachers additional time to prepare quality online instruction.
If you re a TCCA faculty or staff member, I will be providing more information for you by later this afternoon.
Most certainly, I can assure everyone in the TCCA community that more information will follow!
Paul T. Edgar
