Gregg Anderson Academy

Announcements

The opening of our 20-21 school year will certainly be different than any opening we’ve experienced in the past.  With orders from our Governor and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, all class instruction must be through distance learning for now. All students will start with distance learning on Monday, August 10th.

Welcome to our new school year.  We are excited to have you as part of Westside Union School District.

On Friday, July 17th, Governor Gavin Newsom ordered all school campuses to remain physically closed in counties on the state’s monitoring list due to spiking COVID-19 cases. This includes Los Angeles County. Schools cannot re-open until their county has come off the state’s monitoring list for 14 consecutive days.

Our Board held a special meeting on Monday, July 20th to listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and determine how the 20-21 school year will open for our students given the Governor’s Order. Read more in this post.

The celebration of our nation’s independence provides us an important opportunity to reflect on the events of this past spring. In forging our nation, our Founding Fathers laid out lofty principles by which the nation should be established.

 

Gregg Anderson Academy opened August 9, 2012. The school is part of the Westside Union School District located in the northern section of Los Angeles County, specifically the Antelope Valley. The school serves K-6 education students both in general and special education. Gregg Anderson Academy is a school of choice. Students selected to attend the school were chosen through a lottery. Uniforms are mandatory. All classrooms have state of the art technology with a Smartboard in every classroom. Gregg Anderson Academy is the home of the Aviators, where students soar to new heights. Our mission is to create an environment that ensures successful learning for all students through utilization of STEM and AVID strategies. With these strategies we encourage our students to be innovators, inventors, logical thinkers, and problem solvers. Our students will become contributors to their community, now, and in the future.

The health and wellness of students, staff, volunteers and families is our highest priority. When any alarming incident like the 2019 novel COVID-19 occurs, we all want honest information. I am writing today to update you on the state of the COVID-19 from our perspective. I also want to share information regarding steps that we are taking to minimize the chance of transmission at our school sites.

The novel COVID-19 has garnered extensive attention worldwide. There are only a very limited number of cases in the United States, but we can expect the number of domestic cases to increase over coming weeks.

At this time, the risk of exposure to Westside students, staff and volunteers is extremely limited but caution should, nonetheless, be observed.
