Dear Families,

Welcome to a new year! The turn of the calendar has brought many changes to our world.  We all hope you receive this message in good health and thank you for your patience as we work through the specific changes to "school" in WV.

On Tuesday, Jan 19 we welcome our "On Site" students back to the building from 9 weeks of remote learning.  The same safety protocols are in place to keep our students and staff safe and healthy.  We have listed a few reminders below.  There are no changes for those students in Jefferson Virtual Academy!

The full plan can be found on JCS main website or at this link 

This is a reminder that the 2nd marking period ends on Jan 15 and report cards will go home on Jan 22.  

Dr. Tyler and the CWSES staff

January 18 = schools closed in observance of MLK, Jr Day
January 19 = accepted applicants change in placement will begin
January 22 = report cards
January 26 = PT conferences by appt from 6-8 pm (via Zoom)

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. Please ensure that your child has a face covering on when they enter the bus in the morning.

4.  During the school day - All students in grades 3-5 must wear a face covering at all times, even within their pod, until further notice.  Students in grades k-2 may not be required by our school to wear a mask at all times while in their pod (and socially distanced), but as a parent YOU may request that your child remain masked at all times while at school.  Please let your child's teacher know if this is your wish.

5.  Common areas in our building are sanitized no less than 4 times per day. These areas include all bathrooms and high touch areas.  All classrooms have sanitizing and hand washing protocols in place.

6.  All students will eat lunch, have recess, and attend learning sessions within their pod at all times.  During the school day, no pods will mingle.

7.  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.

8.  We have installed bottle filling stations in the building and all 'water fountains' have been closed. 

9.  Teachers will spend as much time as possible with classes outside - please be sure your child has a coat.

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.
