A Letter from Superintendent McCombs

February 24, 2021

 

Dear CCSD Families,


As the pandemic has impacted you and your child(ren) over the past year we are cautiously optimistic in seeing the local COVID-19 infection rates decrease.  As a result, we continue planning how to safely bring students back into our buildings for in-person learning.  Right now, our focus remains on bringing back our youngest (PK-2) learners along with some specific SpEd/ELL programs.  Our goal is for these students to return the week of April 12 and then consider how to bring in other groups after that time.


In order to prepare, we will need to hear about your interest in having your child return to in-person learning or remain remote.  Beginning this Friday, February 26 we hope to send each family a survey via text, email, and/or via our website and social media platforms to gather your feedback.  However, for you to make a decision on your child(ren) returning we want to provide you with some details about what in-person learning will look like this spring.


In-person “Hybrid” Learning Schedule

As we return to in person learning our main goal is to ensure student and staff safety.  In order to maintain social distancing with small groups, you could expect the following hybrid schedule.

Hybrid Schedule

In-Person

At Home

Daily Schedule

2 days a week

3 days a week

Approximately - 9:00a-1:15p

Staying Remote

If your child remains in “remote” learning their daily schedule will not change


Supporting Student/Staff Health and Wellness with the 4 W’s 

Wearing Masks

All students and staff will be expected to wear masks while in the building

  • As a result students will not eat in buildings.  The current meal/food distribution process will continue to ensure students have access to meals

Washing Hands

Students and staff will have regular access to hand sanitizer, soap, and regular sanitation breaks.

  • All classrooms will have constant access to safe and effective cleaning materials in order to maintain the room’s cleanliness

Watching Distance

Students and staff will remain 6 feet apart in classrooms and throughout the building.  

  • This means classrooms, based on space, will max out around 10-12 students.

Additionally, students will remain in cohorts and avoid interacting with peers in other classrooms/grades. Visitors to the building will not be allowed.

Daily

Wellness Check 

Everyday, before sending your child to school, each family must complete a wellness screening of your child in the Genesis Parent Portal.  

  • Failure to complete the daily wellness screening may result in your child being refused entry to school.

If students/staff identify symptoms during wellness check, they should remain home.

Based on a child’s specific IEP needs, if any of the above are unable to be met based on a child’s IEP needs, staff will work with the family/child to best support while maintaining everyone’s safety.

*** Based on family interest and staff accommodations there is the chance that the in-person learning model may change teacher/student assignments, resulting in your child having a different teacher to finish the year.  If any change occurs we will notify you.  Additionally, any family who does not respond to the survey will remain in remote learning.


 

Sincerely,

Estimado Empleados Y Familias del Distrito de Camden

 

A medida que continuamos monitoreando la propagación de COVID-19, todo el personal y los estudiantes continuarán participando en el trabajo a distancia completo y el aprendizaje instructivo hasta el final de las vacaciones de primavera, el 9 de abril de 2021. Continuaremos evaluando y monitoreando las necesidades y comentarios de nuestras familias y personal en ese momento tomaremos una determinación a mediados de marzo de si el Distrito estará listo para ofrecer adecuadamente la instrucción en persona.

 

Sigo creyendo que, en algún momento en un futuro próximo, superaremos esta pandemia y podremos volver a nuestras escuelas y aulas de una manera similar a la de los años anteriores. Para llegar allí, tenemos que seguir trabajando juntos, adaptarnos a la situación, seguir las pautas de salud y seguridad, apoyarnos mutuamente y seguir pensando positivamente en lo que podremos hacer en el futuro cercano.

 

Aunque nuestros edificios escolares permanecerán cerrados, no cambia el compromiso de nuestro distrito con "Poner a los estudiantes primero". Mantener a nuestros estudiantes seguros y conectados al aprendizaje es la máxima prioridad. Nuestro distrito continuará trabajando en colaboración con los líderes escolares del condado y de todo el estado en los planes de reapertura de la escuela para el futuro.

 

Los lugares de comidas continuarán en operacion todos los martes, de 10a-3pm. En estos días, los estudiantes recibirán comidas estables durante varios días. Por favor, visite el sitio de comidas que está más cerca de su casa o regístrese para la entrega utilizando el enlace web a continuación. La lista actual de todos los sitios de comidas en toda la ciudad se puede encontrar aquí: http://camdencity.ss12.sharpschool.com/

 

Gracias por su paciencia y comprensión mientras determinamos los mejores planes para nuestros estudiantes. Si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese con el Centro de Soluciones del Distrito al 856-966-2507.

 

 


Sinceramente
