Academia Avance outdoor 2021 Welcome Back BBQ with banner sign saying 
Bienvenidos

Avance cares deeply about every student and family we serve. We are offering multiple health initiatives to help keep everyone safe in our community. From vaccination mandates to community health fairs to town halls; we are in this together. 

In order to better ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, Academia Avance Charter School will now require students and faculty to be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 novel Coronavirus. This will help us to mitigate the spread of the virus amongst our school community and stay ahead of the curve, and greatly reduce the chance of severe symptoms, if infected. This policy will begin on September 13, 2021.  Here are the latest things to know: 

Vaccine Mandate and Clinics

  1. Avance is mandating vaccines for all eligible students by September 13. This includes every student aged 12 and up, likely those in seventh grade through twelfth grade. 

  2. How to get vaccinated on campus? Our next Vaccination Clinic at Avance (Round 1 09/13 & Round 2 09/21). Details forthcoming at our next virtual Town Hall, see details below. 

Virtual Town Hall

  1. We will host another town hall around details of our vaccination mandate soon. At this virtual town hall, hosted by us over Zoom, we discuss important information related to the new Covid-19 vaccine policy that is required for students ages 12 and up. See you there!
