 June 19 - Two Options for 2020-21
We hope to begin the 2020-21 school year on August 19 with all of our students. We know our community values the Alder experience and desires for students to return to our schools safely. However, with the continually updated guidelines due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are also preparing contingency plans for intermittent shutdowns and/or reductions in capacity and offering the Jonathan Alder Digital Academy (JADA).

The document below provides an overview of the two options families have for the fall. We will continue to share details throughout the summer and will ask you for a decision at a later date. We will also be updating this page with the most up-to-date information.
