We have sadly concluded that we must cancel the IDEA Curriculum Fair for 2020. We very much look forward to celebrating homeschooling at the Fair again in 2021!

Dear Students, Mentors, and Parents,

It seems that governmental recommendations regarding how businesses, schools and governmental offices respond to the spread of the Covid-19 virus are changing daily; sometimes hourly. Various governmental agencies in Alaska and around the nation have increased the seriousness of their warnings and lengthened the list of mandated and recommended closings. As much as it saddens us, iGrad/IDEA will have to close our offices to foot traffic until at least Monday, March 30. However, staff will be at work and ready to serve you via phone or email.

Unlike the drastic instructional challenges faced by the closing of “brick and mortar” schools across Alaska and the nation, students in iGrad/IDEA are well-positioned to continue their educational pursuits largely as they always have.

This is an ever-changing situation. I appreciate your patience and understanding as we continue to stay apprised of mandates and recommendations from pertinent governmental agencies. We will provide updates as needed.

We are ready to connect with you for planning and support. Please call!

Thank you!

Dean O’Dell
iGrad Administrator
