March 11 Coronavirus Statement

Today's blog is about our current response to concerns caused by the coronavirus.  At this time, it is business as usual for American School.  We have a generous sick policy that encourages employees to stay home when they do not feel well.  For our employees who are in the building, we remind them of good hygiene practices on a continuous basis.  We care about our employees' health, and we care about our students' health as well.  Our online middle school courses, middle school correspondence courses, online high school courses and high school correspondence courses can be done at your own pace.  If you're sick, you don't have to worry about falling behind because you're working in a classroom of one and can set your own schedule.  We do ask, however, that any exams on paper that you send to us not be soiled.  If we do receive a soiled exam, we will likely send it back to you, which will delay the grading process.  As a company we have several convention appearances scheduled this spring, and those remain as scheduled at this time.  Should anything change regarding the coronavirus, we will write an additional blog.  In the meantime, please accept our best wishes for your health and our appreciation for allowing us to serve you.
