Features and Fish Tales From Seaport Academy

Helping Our Students Continue to Learn During the COVID-19 Health Closure

As with all Schools for Children programs and schools, the health and safety of Seaport Academy students, staff, parents and families are of the utmost importance. In this context, Seaport decided that there will be no school from Monday, March 16-Friday, April 1st.   

Seaport is responding to the COVID-19 health closure with the following steps:

  • The Seaport clinical staff remains available for counseling during this period. Counselors have reached out to their students to set up weekly counseling times via phone or telecommunication application, e.g., Skype, Zoom or FaceTime.
  • The Seaport teaching staff is coordinating a distance-learning program in order to mitigate this unplanned closure.
  • Seaport is mailing each student a grocery gift card to help offset the meal costs that may arise from students missing meals typically provided at the school.

Seaport will continue to update students and families as the situation unfolds. Visit this website for news. Also, more detailed information will be sent through email. The director has also invited families to contact him directly to share additional questions or concerns.
