While we continue to adjust our daily lives in response to the global health crisis, we find ourselves feeling a sense of gratitude that extends well beyond our CCPS walls. Today we were able to serve 1,040 “Grab and Go” meals to 520 Caroline youth. Because of our collaboration with community sites, church volunteers, building staff, the sheriff’s office, the food services department, and the transportation department, we provided curbside assistance to our Caroline families. We hope to serve even more students and youth, 18 and under, tomorrow from 8-1 at the four school sites or 8-11 at the three community sites.
Today was also the “go live” date for our Continuity of Instruction plan and website. Families with Internet access were able to visit the CCPS Continuity of Instruction site to view online activities broken down by grade level and course/subject. School teams also began providing access to hard copy activity packets (for those without Internet) and medication and will continue this curbside distribution tomorrow from 8:00-4:00. While we recognize the “at-home” challenges associated with the state-required “Continuity of Education” plans, we hope these activities and resources will support your child in sharpening his/her skills and applying learning in meaningful ways during the closure. As a reminder, all students will be required to turn in two activities per course/subject upon our return to school the week of March 30. These activities will be reviewed for completion and assigned participation grades. Should the Governor extend the COVID-19 closure beyond this date, new “Continuity of Education” materials will be provided with updated directions.
Thank you again for your support during this time. Stay well!
