What's Coming up this Summer at Alain Locke Charter School

Hello, and thank you for visiting. Everyone at Alain Locke Charter School hopes you and your family are doing well and looking forward to the summer.

Because we will be on an extended summer break, Alain Locke is going to have a Summer Bridge Program from July 20 to August 14th for all our students. The goal of this program is to support each student’s transition to their next grade level by providing students with a focused review of prioritized concepts and skills over the summer break.

Grade level teams are putting together summer reading and math review activities, including online resources for extra practice, and those will be posted on this site. Check back regularly and follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see the latest news.

All students will be expected to complete the assigned summer bridge work. You will be able to pick up your child’s packet at the school between July 13-16 from 8-4pm.

Also, families can still pick up school meals Monday through Friday between 9 am and 1 pm. Please see below for information and links.

Be safe and well everyone—we look forward to seeing you soon.
