Ms. Lofstrand's Sunday Message


Getting Things From School

Westchester will be open to families on Monday and Wednesday, March 16 and 18 from 12:00 - 6:00 PM. During this time, families can check out a Chromebook for their students' work (much work will be online), pick up any medications from the nurse's office, and pick up anything left in lockers.


Student Learning

Instructional staff are using the first three consecutive days of closure to finalize plans for remote learning. Beginning Wednesday, March 18, students will begin receiving reinforcement and/or enrichment activities/tasks via school eBlast. If the school closure extends to and beyond Friday, March 27, a different set of guidelines for remote learning will be shared with students and families.


Food Services for Students

The Nutrition Department will provide all students the option to pick up two meals a day from Decatur High School beginning Wednesday, March 18. This will allow our staff time to get the necessary food deliveries to begin this service. Our goal is to make sure all of our students continue to have access to food during the extended school closure. These meals will be a cold breakfast and shelf-stable lunch. The program is open to all City Schools of Decatur students. We are unable to extend this meal service to siblings who are not CSD students, parents/guardians, or the general public. Meals will be available for pickup daily 9:00am-11:00am. Students may only pick up two meals (one breakfast and one lunch) per day and may not purchase additional meals. The CSD student must be present to pick up their meal. All meal prices will remain the same as a typical school day and all approved free and reduced lunch applications will be honored. It is unclear whether this is something our students will take advantage of; we will evaluate this program throughout our closure to determine if participation is high enough to continue or require modifications.
