COVID-19 Update 08/1/2020:
GOOD NEWS! The ECHO Co-op will be reopening in September 2020 with a modified activity schedule. We regret that due to COVID-19, the ECHO Co-op will only be able to accommodate students in 3rd-12th grades for the Fall 2020 semester. It is our hope to be able to open for the Spring 2021 semester with activities available for PreK-2nd grade students.
Fall 2020 online registration will begin on Wed., Aug. 5, 2020, @ 10:00 a.m. and will close on Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020, @ 6:00 p.m. A mandatory, by-appointment-only orientation meeting with parents will be held on Friday, Sept. 4, 2020, to discuss the modified schedule and new operations mandates that will be in place. Orientation will run from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. Appointment times will be sent to registered families on Sept. 2, 2020. Please make arrangements now to be able to attend and also for your children as orientation is a parents-only event. We do apologize in advance for any inconvenience that may cause but due to time constraints, this will work best to keep things moving along during orientation.
ECHO Co-op activities are being finalized over the next few days due to some last minute changes to comply with meeting mandates. We ask for your continued patience as we work to get ready for the opening of online registration on Aug. 5, 2020. Any additional adjustments to activities, scheduling, etc., will be covered at orientation on Sept. 4, 2020, if needed. We hope that your family will join the ECHO family as we endeavor to encourage, enrich, and support each other on this amazing homeschooling adventure. Thank you.
