Welcome To Horizons Exploratory Academy

Fall 2020 School Information

The Salida School Board, supported by Chaffee County Public Health and other partners, has decided to resume in-person instruction for any students at all schools. In the event that we return to remote schooling, it is each student's responsibility to connect with teachers according to their class schedule. Teacher contact information is provided below and is accessible by students using their school accounts.

New District policies require that all students who choose to attend in-person instruction adhere to the following protocols:

  1. Do not come to school if you are feeling ill (sore throat, fever greater than 100 degrees F, body aches, cough, fatigue, etc.). Reach out to the school and let us know you will be out.
  2. Health checks will be conducted each day for all students and staff upon arrival (declaration of symptoms if any, temp. check)
  3. Anyone entering the building needs to wash hands in the kitchen or one of the bathrooms immediately. Hand sanitizer will also be available in case the sinks are occupied.
  4. Students and staff must observe social distancing while at school.

 

As always, please feel free to reach out to the school for any clarification you might need (see contact information below.)

ABOUT THE SCHOOL

Not everyone thrives in a conventional school model, as individual needs can vary greatly between students. At Horizons, all students develop an individualized learning plan in which their goals and aspirations are the center most aspect. From there, they develop a plan to graduate not just with the required classes, but with a solid foundation of skills that they can take with them.

Additionally, students at Horizons have freedom to earn credit three different ways. (1) Online education, blended with one-on-one evaluations. (2) Teacher-led module classes that focus intensely in a subject area, and (3) independent study in which students present a plan, develop it, implement it, and demonstrate what they learned.

Horizons Exploratory Academy isn’t for everyone, but for students who seek and need freedom of education, it is a school that challenges students at all skill levels.
