E-Learning Activities and other school news!

Westchester Familes

The time has come for you to access the amazing enrichment and review activities our teachers have been preparing for you! Remember, these are optional (but really fun) activities. Starting March 27th, new learning will begin. Your classroom teachers will be contacting you about how to access the content before the 27th.

If you have any questions about your technology, please reach out to me (rlofstrand@csdecatur.net) or Mrs. Nation (bnation@csdecatur.net) and we will do everything we can to help you! If you have any questions or concerns about the content of the work, please email your teacher directly. If you have district-wide questions, please submit at http://bit.ly/CV19Q.

Please follow this link for your “E-learning plan” which can be used to supplement students’ learning between now and March 27th. They will be updated periodically so continue to check back for some new stuff!

Stay safe . . . stay connected . . . continue to build our community!

Rochelle Lofstrand, Principal

p.s. We will be sending out a link to our video/virtual Community Circle this Friday!


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.
