Weekly Parent Email – August 13, 2021

August 13, 2021

Can you believe it? It’s already August 2021, and we are commencing the second school year of dealing with the tendrils of a global pandemic. Last year, our mentors gracefully weathered the storm and continue to deliver meaningful and transformational learning even in uncertain times. While many other schools had a rough learning curve integrating a new online platform, they were ahead of the game already masterfully utilizing the online classroom! This was and will continue to be a great asset to the students this school year. As the Executive Director, I want to welcome you all to another transformational year of learning with Williamsburg. Classes begin Monday, and we can’t wait to start working with your student. 

If you have any questions while preparing, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our Support Team. They will have special extended hours from August 16-20 to assist with any questions as you start the school year, so help will be available from 8:00 AM-5:00 PM next week with regular business hours resuming Monday, August 23. We look forward to serving you!   

Warmly, 

Anya Yeager 

Executive Director, Williamsburg Academy
