IN PERSON LEARNERS
IMPORTANT – Remote Learning Information Needed From EVERY Family – PLEASE COMPLETE ASAP IF YOU HAVE NOT.
First, thank you for helping our in-person launch go as well as it could! We are grateful we’ve had two solid months, and counting, with your kids at school learning and growing. While we implement, daily, our health and safety protocols to remain in person, we are continually preparing for any need to move to remote learning from home should we have a COVID outbreak that would warrant closure. We are striving for 100% of families to complete this survey by Wednesday, Nov. 11th to help us in our preparations. Thank you for your feedback and partnership! Psst…You will also need the attached information regarding Acceptable Use =)Inno-Z-Student-AUP-20-21-iPad.pdfDownload

Bittersweet Ski Passes – Virtual and In Person Learners Can Both Take Part!
We are again offering Bittersweet Ski Passes for students (7 + years) and their families (extended families, too!) through Innocademy and iCademy Global.
Ski passes are a great opportunity for folks to purchase a pass ($22) that acts as a coupon throughout the season, reducing the prices on lift tickets, helmets, and rentals. The pass can be used, repeatedly, at any time throughout the ski season (please read the restrictions on timeframe and days), by the pass holder! ANYONE can be part of the ski club…student, parent, family friend.
If you are interested, please…
- Read through the attached information – INCLUDING COVID 19 policies
- Fill out the attached form for student and/or adult
- Secure in an envelope with payment (checks payable to BITTERSWEET SKI RESORT)
- Label envelope: BITTERSWEET SKI PASSES – LEISA LOBBEZOO
- Return to campus. If you would like to mail the forms and payment via US mail, that is great, too! Please use the information, below:
Leisa Lobbezoo iCademy Global, 8485 Homestead Drive, Zeeland, MI 49464
Once we receive the application and payment, there is usually about a 14 school day turn around for your information to be processed at Bittersweet and passes to be issued so please plan ahead. =)
Just in case you were wondering, “Hmmm…what does Bittersweet usually charge for lift tickets and rentals?”

$32-$57 lift ticket
$10 helmet rental

Please continue to encourage your child(ren) to properly wear their masks all day long. Some of their masks are just plumb tuckered out from the daily wear and are giving up by sliding down their little faces. If you wouldn’t mind taking a moment this weekend to check your child’s masks for proper fit, that would be fantastic. Maybe even keeping a spare in their backpacks if they’d like to switch them out midway through the day – – or if one is feeling uncomfortable.
Again, your efforts to keep our learning environment safe by adhering to strict mitigation protocols are remarkable and very appreciated. Our hearts go out to our close neighbors currently struggling with school closings. Please keep doing what you are doing so well… washing hands, maintaining social distance, wearing masks, and keeping a close eye on any potential COVID-19 symptoms your students may be exhibiting and then refraining from sending them to school. It’s truly our best strategy for preventing community-spread from affecting our ability to deliver in-person instruction.
