Dear Imhotep Family:
On Friday, March 13th, Governor Wolf declared a state of emergency prompting all schools to close for the next two weeks.  Schools across the commonwealth were faced with deciding how and if they would provide instruction to students during the shutdown.  Much of this decision is based on the ability to ensure equitable access to resources. Imhotep Institute Charter High School serves as its own Local Education Agency and feels confident in our ability to provide our students and families with the support necessary to access online programming during the shutdown.  Students in grades 11 and 12 received laptops at the start of the school year. To ensure equity and access amongst our students in grades 9 and 10, loaner laptops were distributed on Tuesday, March 17, 2020. Despite these efforts, we understand that some students may not be able to connect with us during the Covid-19 school shut down and we are committed to ensure that these students do not fall behind, nor will they be penalized.  

Effective Thursday, March 19, 2020 we will continue to provide instruction for our students utilizing our online platforms. Students will be able to connect with their teachers and interact with their peers using Google Meet. Students may gain access to all resources including videos, assignments through their Unified Classroom accounts.
We have developed an online schedule for students that closely mirrors their regular school day whereas both regular education and special education teachers will be available for support daily.  In doing so our goals are to:
* Provide students with structure;
* Provide rigorous instruction;
* Provide access to instructional support; and
* Provide as much normalcy as possible.

Please click here to view the presentation sent to your children explaining the online program. A member of our support team will reach out to you on a weekly basis to share your child’s progress and to answer any questions you may have.
Though we might not have all of the answers to the questions or even know all of the questions to ask, we share a commitment to doing what we know is right by your children. We ask that you continue to partner with us to make sure that our students remain engaged and continue to learn during the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. If you have any questions or concerns you may reach a member of the administrative team by clicking here.
In the spirit of harambee,
“We are descendants of great African fathers and great African mothers. We will have the pride, strength and the power of the motherland, To help us do the things we must do.  Because we must understand, I am because we are and we are because I am. When I shine the nation shines; and when the nation shines, we all shine.”
