Summer Registration forms are due by June 5, 2020.
After June 5, space is offered on a first-come, first-served basis is there is availability.
IMA offers a variety of programs that foster an entrepreneurial mind and spirit throughout the summer for IMA students. Join us for a week, or the entire summer! Students will build lasting relationships with peers in multi-age classrooms.
Classroom Language Models & Staffing: Please note IMA teachers sign-up based on their summer availability and may or may not be present every week of the summer. Summer Programs continue to promote a language immersion environment; however, this is flexible during the summer months, and not all languages can be guaranteed each week. IMA does not offer any full immersion models over the summer.
IMA continues to implement current strategies to limit the transmission of COVID-19 within our campus communities.
In classrooms, we focus on creating an environment that provides adequate distance between tables for children to maintain a level of social distancing. The children seem to enjoy working on their 'work packets' and are doing well with having to stay at one designated spot or table for the majority of the day. Some of the classes have circle time while the students remain at their seats while others have rolled up the rugs and have placed 'spots' on the floor for them to sit.
One of the benefits of IMA is that all campuses have large classrooms. Some of the teachers have chosen to move and even close some of the shelves to minimize the free use of the materials as they are cleaning and sanitizing them after each use. Another reason they are doing this is to create more space for the tables to be adequately spread out.
IMA will continue to follow the following precautionary guidelines:
- Student and staff temperature and wellness checks each morning upon arrival and throughout the day
- Staff members wearing masks and /or gloves; it is also recommended for children to wear masks while in school
- Thorough hand washing procedures
- Modified classroom environments to promote social distancing
- Routine environmental cleaning and sanitizing several times each day
