Dear CCS Family & Community:

As you know, the fluidity of the Coronavirus issue continues, and it has and will very likely impact the plans for CCS. With this in mind, we are continuing to prepare for the remainder of the school year, knowing that these plans are subject to change as well. The following includes some of our plans as of today, March 24, 2020:

· Spring break continues this week.

· Because of the Governor’s Stay-at-Home Mandate, schools will be closed until further notice.

o This includes school playgrounds, and parents are asked to inform their children of this.

· eLearning day activities will begin again next week.

o Thursday of next week will be our first eLearning day after spring break, followed by eLearning days on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the following weeks.

o Teachers will be working from home and will have office hours Mondays – Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

§ Teachers can be contacted via email or other electronic means.

o With the Governor’s travel ban, student packets will not be available at this time.

o Common-sense will dictate our eLearning day plans and expectations, and schools will be flexible and willing to work with students and parents.

o Parents are greatly encourage to work with their children at home and provide additional learning activities for them.

· Student meal opportunities will begin next week.

o Students will be able to pick-up meals at Clay City Elementary, Forest Park Elementary, and Meridian Elementary on Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

o Students will receive 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches.

o Parents are asked to take their child to only one school location and to pick-up a maximum of 5 breakfasts and 5 lunches per child.

o All CCS students are eligible to receive the breakfasts and lunches.

· Activities such as proms and graduations are still up-in-the-air at this point; however, we understand the value and importance of these events and will work very hard to reschedule as many of them as possible.

Your understanding, support, and patience are greatly appreciated during this time!
