Please have a very Safe Spring Break.
D. A. T. E.'s Motto: "Learning with Relationships, Relevance, and Rigor."
Ms. Erica Thomas,
We know some absences are unavoidable even in this virtual environment, but keeping students logged in for all their classes matters. Attending school regularly helps students self-esteem, builds school morale, and helps to reduce academic challenges. Start building this habit early so students can learn right away that going to school on time and every day is important. If your student is unable to participate in their daily schedule, they are considered absent. Please remember when this occurs, the school needs to be notified within 30 days to excuse any absences. To report an absence, please email Attendance@dateacademy.org. If email is not possible, please leave a message on our front desk line at 678-999-9290.

Director of Student Services

This school year is quickly coming to an end. We've seen lots of changes in our school and community and somehow managed to overcome them all. Let's not let this momentous year go by without something to remember. There is still time to purchase your 2021 school yearbook.
