Sussex Academy adds in-person learning days

April 2, 2021

Sussex Academy announced that K-12 students attending school in person may return to campus four days per week beginning Monday, April 12.

Students in grades K-5 will be on campus and will continue to receive in-person instruction on their regular cohort days; however, due to space limitations, students will be supervised on campus by other staff members on their non-cohort days. Students will log on to to their regular classes on non-cohort days, but will not be face-to-face with their regular teachers.

Students in grades 6-8 should plan to be in their regular classes four days per week, as the middle school classrooms are able to accommodate the current in-person student class sizes.

All high school families have also been offered a four-days-per-week learning option.

Sussex Academy has been operating at 85 percent capacity with two-day, in-person learning since September. In February, high school students gradually returned to four days per week.

All fully remote K-12 students may continue with a fully remote learning model for the remainder of the 2020-21 school year if they wish to do so.

Sussex Academy is a public charter, tuition-free school serving grades K-12. The school has an elementary and secondary campus, both centrally located in Georgetown. For more information, email
