Dear Families,

Thank you for your patience and cooperation as we redesign the look of education in response to COVID-19. Welcome to the 2nd half of the first quarter!

All students are required to access their individual Google Classroom. This is where families will find current information, weekly assignments that may be needed if your child is absent, and where remote learning will occur for ALL students.

A few items to note for the 2020-2021 school year and CWSES:

1. The front doors open at 8:40 am and the school day will end for students at 2:40 PM every day. This is one hour earlier than previous years to allow for deep cleaning and sanitizing of all spaces.  If you will be picking your child up from school by car, please see the Dismissal link on your child's Google Classroom.  All families that are sending students in person still must log on to their child's Google Classroom for information.  Dismissal information appears only in that forum.

2.  We may not host any visitors inside the building.  Unfortunately, we are not permitted to allow entry to parents or visitors.  We will be conducting all business by telephone and/or from the call box out front.  Please be prepared to present your ID to the camera at the call box in order to proceed. Our apologies for any inconvenience.

3.  Your child must wear a mask every day in all spaces that are shared. This means that they must wear a mask to enter the building.  All grades.

4.  All children must pass through a temperature screening every morning upon arrival.  Any child with a temperature of 100.0 or above will report to our "Chill Zone" while a parent is contacted to come pick them up.  No child will be permitted to remain at school with a temperature.  Further guidance about next steps will come from JCS and the JCHD soon.

5.  Your children are working hard! Our staff are working hard! Take time to enjoy this beautiful fall weather, too!

Best Wishes for a Wonderful Year,
Dr. Tyler and Mr. Kursey

Please remember that our building is closed and we are not permitted to meet with anyone in person.  This means all scheduled meetings will occur virtually.
