Dear Albemarle School & Preschool Family, 

While we remain optimistic about the start of school on August 17, there still remains many unanswered questions. We have schedules prepared to open with a normal operating schedule with some safety restrictions. These include things such as recommendation of face covering (masks), walking on the right side of hallways to help with one way traffic, some lunches and breaks eaten in the classroom, separating groups during recess, elective teachers going to the classroom rather than the students moving when possible, and a few others. 

However, we are also preparing different scenarios if we are mandated to operate at less than full capacity. These include A/B Days (alternating) and partial days or early release days. The A/B day scenario would mean that a portion of the class reports on designated days while the others are completing assignments via distance learning. The other scenario with this is that a portion reports in the morning hours and the other portion reports in the afternoon hours. This would give everyone some face to face time in smaller groups on a daily basis. The early release scenario would allow time in the afternoon to clean and sanitize before the next day. 

None of the scenarios will be perfect for all, but there are many considerations. The list of considerations to include, but are not limited to:

  • The physical safety of our students, staff and parents/home;
  • The emotional needs of our students and staff;
  • The need for face to face time with students and teachers;
  • Daily child care for our parents so they can continue to work;
  • Consideration of families that may not have reliable Internet access;
  • Cleaning and sanitizing of the building. 

I will be meeting with other Heads of School from the TIC Conference in July. During that time we will all discuss plans for opening school. These schools are all similar in size and orientation. To help us prepare, I would like to hear your thoughts. Please feel free to respond to me at This email address is being protected from spambots.

I wish you all a very safe holiday weekend and I hope everyone remains safe throughout the remainder of your summer.

We are looking ahead to Fall 2020!  

This fall Albemarle School will be joining forces with Lawrence Academy to form an AWESOME football team!  Our Johnson/Lambe (Adidas) spirit wear store is open until midnight on June 14th for orders.  

If you have a child who is thinking of participating, there are 2 T-shirts in the store that are required and need to be ordered now.

Together they are $20 and are a good quality shirt.  You can access the store here: Adidas Store.


Albemarle School is working on plans to reopen school for our Preschool students and Summer Care Program.  At this time we do not have an official reopening date, but we have initiated the application process for reopening.  This application is from the school level.  Parents do not need to do anything at this time.  As we receive guidance from our licensure agencies we will communicate the opening date, guidelines, and registration process.

In the meantime, thank you for your patience and understanding.  We wish you all to stay happy, healthy, and safe and we look forward to seeing you soon.

As you may know, NC Governor Cooper has mandated that all K-12 schools be closed for the next two weeks beginning this Monday, March 16th. The Board Chair, Vice-Chair, Mr. Hawkins, Ms. Morris and I met Friday to develop a plan of action in case Albemarle School should need to be closed. We decided that we would comply with school closure recommendations or mandates, and preschool would be included.

To minimize the loss of instructional time, Spring Break for students will be moved to next week (March 16th-20th). However, all staff members should report to work on Monday, March 16th from 8:00-3:00. Students will still have Good Friday (April 10th) and Easter Monday (April 13th) as holidays. During the week of March 23rd-27th, all staff will report to work. K-12 teachers will provide assignments and projects, and students will be expected to complete all assignments during that time. Preschool teachers will provide developmentally appropriate activities for parents.

For those who have no child care options, we are going to compile a list of our responsible high school students who will be willing to provide that service.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience this causes everyone. We know this provides hardship for many people. I am certain these extraordinary measures were taken only after careful consideration for the safety of all NC citizens.

We will continue to provide updates as additional information becomes available.

This year’s Fall Festival was a great success! Thank you to our countless volunteers who started prepping long before the festival and worked until well after it was over. We could not accomplish something like this without the help of you all. 

Together, we accomplish more!
