St. Andrew's School Savannah preK kindergarten Wilmington Island

St. Andrew’s School in Savannah will donate 75 iPads to Horizons Savannah this fall. The iPads will be distributed to students throughout Chatham County who participate in Horizons summer program.

community.”

“Horizons is very fortunate to partner with St. Andrew’s School. In addition to this gift of technology for our students, St. Andrew’s provides a supportive and welcoming environment for all Horizons students and families each summer. Horizons students will use these devices to access distance learning from public school and also continue to be supported by our Horizons faculty through this transition.”

Savannah-Chatham public schools updated school calendar 2020-21

Tuesday, July 14th, 2020

Savannah Chatham public schools

Savannah-Chatham School Board members approved modifications in July to the academic calendar for the 2020-21 School Year due to COVID-19.

The calendar modifications include a delay in the start of the school year. The approved calendar modification allow teachers to return August 3, 2020 and students to begin instruction virtually on August 19, 2020.

The twelve intervening staff days would be dedicated to preparing all educators to deliver effective online instruction and face to face instruction as well as address other matters related to social emotional learning, hygiene protocols, student/family support services, accountability procedures, and revised Title IX regulations. The modified calendar:
• Offers 170 days of instruction
• Provides 12 days of pre-planning and training before the first day of instruction
• Begins the school year on Wednesday, August 19, 2020
• Begins the school year in a virtual “E-Learning” Districtwide model
• Adds two staff planning days for teachers at the end of the school year
• Includes the strategic use of Districtwide “E-Learning Days” on the November 3, 2020 Election Day, at the start of Second Semester, and after St. Patrick’s Day

See the modified 2020-21 SY calendar here & above.

Proposed delayed school start for Savannah-Chatham Public Schools

Saturday, July 11th, 2020

Savannah Chatham public schools calendar 2020-21 new modified

Savannah-Chatham Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Ann Levett will make a recommendation to the Board of Education at their Thurs. July 16, 2020 meeting that the Academic Calendar for the 2020-21 school year be modified due to impacts created by COVID-19.

While the approved calendar for the upcoming school year originally called for a start date of Aug. 5, 2020, after reviewing public health data and hearing feedback from staff, parents and task force members, the Superintendent is advocating for a delayed start to the 2020-21 school year and other changes to the calendar.

Above is the recommended modified calendar that will be discussed at the July 16 Board of Education meeting.

With more than 37,000 students, the Savannah-Chatham County public school system is one of Georgia’s largest outside metro Atlanta.

Some Georgia school districts, such as Gwinnett and Richmond counties, are letting parents choose between in-person and online classes. Others are biding for more time. Bibb County schools have delayed the start of classes until after the Labor Day holiday Sept. 7 while officials weigh options, The Associated Press reported.

The American Academy of Pediatrics has recommended resuming in-person classes for K-12 students as long as it can be done safely. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is rolling out guidance. Draft CDC documents obtained by The Associated Press say: “Decisions about how to open and run schools safely should be made based on local needs and conditions.”

Savannah schools: St. Andrew’s Wilkowski Scholarship Award winners

Monday, June 8th, 2020

St. Andrew's Savannah schools private Wilmington Island

As longtime supporters of St. Andrew’s School in Savannah, the Wilkowksi family annually presents a scholarship to one male and one female student athlete in the senior class.

To be eligible for this $1,000 scholarship, a student must have at least a 3.0 GPA, have attended St. Andrew’s all four years in the Upper School, and must have earned at least 7 Varsity letters. All eligible candidates are interviewed by Dr. Mike Wilkowksi and winners are selected from the interview process.

The 2020 Wilkowski Scholarship Award winners are Matt Eling and Cayleigh Nicholson (pictured right). At St. Andrew’s, Matt participated in Varsity Soccer and Swimming and Cayleigh participated in Varsity Cross Country and Soccer. Matt and Cayleigh are both attending Georgia Tech in the fall.

“The Wilkowski sisters, Grace ’06, Mary ’07, and Rose ’08, exemplified the true meaning of being a student athlete,” said Kelley Waldron, Head of School. “These three alumni were fully committed to their studies, the school community, and their skills on the court and field.”

In recognition of their successes, in 2014 the school retired all three jerseys for the Wilkowski sisters.
