CCS Home Health Screening and Parent Meeting – Imp. Info for Monday, August 24th

Dear CCS Students and Families,
Monday is our first day of school for the 2020-2021 school year for grades 1-8. We are so excited to welcome our incredible students back to CCS! I know you are receiving lots of information from the school – please read this email carefully also. Thank you!
* All students are expected to start school at 9:00 am every day.
**All Distance Learners (Full distance learners and Hybrid/Group B) can expect to join a Google Meet/Zoom meeting at 9:00 am on Monday. Your learning center teacher or a distance-learning coach will send a link to families or middle school students by 9:00 am on. Monday.
***Each Wednesday all students are expected to join our All School Meeting (link will be shared on Tuesday night).
We need everyone to help us start SAFE!
***In-person learners should stay home if they are sick,  experiencing any COVID-like symptom, or have been in close contact with someone who has a probable or confirmed case of Covid-19.
***All parents of in-person learners must screen their child/children BEFORE  they come to school. You will need a thermometer to check your child’s/children’s temperature. A link to a Google form will be emailed to you each morning to record the results of your screening. We are asking everyone to fill this out to start building the habit. 
*** Please report any probable or diagnosed COVID cases to the School Principal right away,
***In person learners must wear a mask and stay 6 feet away from other children and adults when they are dropped off and as they walk to their assigned classrooms. 
*****Please join me for a back-to-school question and answer session on Sunday at 5:00 pm. Join here: This link is on the calendar on our website also.
We are focused on two things this week:
  1. A safe start to in-person learning
  2. Establishing a productive learning space and routines at home
As you can expect, hybrid learning is complex and has required us to shift the way we do things to ensure the health and safety of our students, staff, families, and communities while also allowing us to maintain a thread of distance learning and to focus on building relationships. We are embracing lifelong learning and working hard to foster and facilitate student learning whether students are at school or at home. Our teachers have accomplished so much this week and are ready to welcome students back to school. We will continue to improve and develop our hybrid approach – so please be patient with us.
With your help and support, we feel confident that we can start the year safely! Thank you!
