CANTON CITY SCHOOLS NEWS

Bulldog Update: March 13, 2020

A MESSAGE REGARDING THE CORONAVIRUS

All CCSD schools will be closed for three weeks beginning Monday, March 16. During this time, we will be providing online learning opportunities for our students. Please continue to monitor our WEBSITE PAGE that is dedicated to updates on our protocols for the next 3 weeks.


Finally, and most importantly: as a country, a city and a school district, we are in crisis, even if we don’t see it right now. We need to take care of one another, our families, as well as our students and their families. But we also need to take care of ourselves. I ask that you take Monday to rest, reflect on your good health and your many blessings, and understand that things are going to get worse before they get better. But we are resilient and we will take care of each other.


Again, we will provide updates as they become available.

MEAL SERVICES OFFERED TO KIDS DURING THE BREAK

Beginning Monday during the extended school closure, student meals will still be available at any of our schools, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. STUDENTS MUST BE PRESENT and will receive “To Go” bags for all three meals of the day every day including spring break until they return to school. Students will not eat in the cafeterias as we want to avoid having large crowds gather. Students may go to the school closest to their home. *Note: This is for all Canton City kids ages 1-18.

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR FEBRUARY 2020 STUDENTS AND STAFF OF THE MONTH!
