Big picture

No Pre-K on December 15, 2020.

The Pre-Kindergarten teachers have a wonderful opportunity to participate in an upcoming professional development event on Tuesday, December 15, 2020 provided by the Ready at Five Organization. The symposium is entitled, “How Cultural Competency Creates Transformative Learning Experiences.”


Therefore, school for your child on December 15, 2020, will be asynchronous so that teachers may attend this valuable training. Your child’s teacher will post activities in their Google Classroom for that school day. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility.

Kajeets/Hotspots- Friendly Reminder

Hotspots issued by CCPS to students without connectivity have a limited/set amount of monthly data. Hotspots are only to be utilized by CCPS issued devices and are intended for school use only. In the event the data runs out, students will not be able to connect with their teachers and will not be issued an additional device. CCPS issued devices and hotspots are monitored for appropriate use. If you have any questions, please contact the school.

Tips for Parents - Virtual Learning

How can I support distance learning?

  1. Provide your children with a learning space that is as quiet and free from distractions. If possible, a chair and desk or flat surface to use for writing and schoolwork is best.

  2. Create an agreed upon set of behaviors for class time and school work. Students need to be engaged in the learning process and complete their assignments.

  3. Check to make sure that student work is complete: Teachers are working hard to provide the instruction and reminding students to come to office hours if they have questions. Check assignments in Powerschool and Google Classroom to see if there are any missing assignments or assignments that should be redone for a better grade.

  4. Make sure your child has all the necessary materials including a fully charged device and all learning materials sent home school for the second quarter.

  5. Most importantly, make sure your child logs in with his teacher ON TIME. We have a shortened day and a limited amount of time with students. Every minute counts. If they are late logging in, they are definitely going to miss something important!

  6. Make sure your child completes and hands in Asynchronous Wednesday work to get counted for attendance.


Technology Help: You can get help with the classroom teacher during office hours. If the teacher can not help, you can call the school. If neither the school or teacher can help, you can call tech support at 410-479-1464.
