When the world came to a standstill in March of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Ann & Nate Levine Academy was forced to make some difficult decisions. In an effort to keep our students, our faculty, and the community safe, the school shifted to an online, distance learning experience for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. This pivot required Levine Academy to invest in new technologies such as laptops, cameras, and distance learning tools to ensure teaching and learning could continue.
When Levine Academy reopened for our summer programs in June 2020 and for the start of school in August of 2020, it incurred even more unexpected expenses. Investing in desk shields, masks, additional cleaning supplies, sanitizer stations, thermometers, outdoor classrooms, teacher training, and much more. These investments were necessary to keep the students and faculty safe at school, but chipped away at our already tight, non-profit budget.
This fund will not only help the school continue to keep our community's health and safety as a top priority, but will also help Levine Academy...
- Proactively prepare for this coming year and stay ahead of the curve in response to unexpected closures and needs to pivot in response to any situation
- Support an environment of comfort, support and familiar routine among our students
- Keep the school program moving in the right direction and continuing to implement our top-notch curriculum
- Foster a community that cares for one another's health and well-being
