This message is the first of two emails you will receive from us within the next 24 hours. The purpose of this particular message is two-fold. It is a reminder for families of children enrolled in the hybrid plan about which day their child is scheduled to attend school on campus next week. It is also intended to emphasize the importance of students' connection with the school as a measure of attendance. Attached, you will find a description of the district's attendance process that was mentioned in your child's Sneak Peek session.
The second message that will be sent will be customized for your child's academic team. It will contain the information discussed in last evening's Sneak Peek sessions.
For parents with students enrolled in our hybrid plan, the chart below answers the question: "When does my child come to campus during the weeks of August 17 and 24? Please note that Weeks 1 and 2 differ from week 3 and beyond.
Please remember that for weeks 1 and 2, your child will attend one day on campus and learn remotely the other 4 days. Starting week 3 (August 31), however, we will begin having students with last names A-L attending on Mondays and Tuesdays, while students with last names M-Z will attend on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
It is important that ALL students log in everyday to their CCS accounts on their remote days, check their emails and Google classroom assignments, and complete our Mindful Minute (featured on their CCS Engage page when they log in). This connection will be used to determine attendance on remote learning days. Please read the attached attendance letter for more clarification. Students should begin doing so on Monday - even if their on-campus learning day is scheduled for later in the week. This standard also applies to students enrolled in a fully virtual setting. Not only is daily connection to school important for attendance purposes, it is also extremely beneficial in helping students establish positive connections and reduce frustrations. Staying connected sets the foundation for success.
We look forward to connecting with your child next week - on campus and/or virtually.
Nichole Richardson Ijames, Principal
