A Note about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) to Our Parents and Students. Learn more

Thank you for your interest in S4’s 5 Ways to Fight the Covid-19/Summer Slide Learning Loss and Prepare Your Student for Fall.

From what research tells us, students can expect to loose 1-2 months of academic gain over the summer.

Recent research tells us that the 7+ months learning loss, as a result of the Covid-19 school closures, could be catastrophic by comparison.

According to an April 16, 2020 New York Times editorial:

  • Lacking steady instruction during the shutdown, students might retain only 70% of their annual reading gains
  • Indications regarding math is worse — students could lose between 50% – 100% of their math gains this academic year*

This 2-page story will give you some concrete ideas on what you can do to stop the Covid-19/Summer Slide, so your student will be ready for school this fall.
