Chichester Central School News
October 2, 2020
We continue to be thankful for our school community as we work together to remain nimble and open to new ideas during this unprecedented time. I continue to look forward to conversations, feedback, questions, and emails from our community, as it reminds and challenges us to look at our practices from another point of view. Just as we give feedback to our students to increase their growth, we also must take the same view to continue to refine our practices.
Thank you to everyone that joined us with our virtual Open House sessions over the past week. There were wonderful questions coming up, and it sounds like it provided a wonderful opportunity for parents to view classrooms, have conversations with teachers, and connect with our school.
Please continue reaching out to your child's teacher with questions, support needs, and assistance when needed. I always welcome phone calls, emails, and meetings. Our goal is that our students and families feel supported throughout their academic experience here at CCS.

CCS HEALTH OFFICE UPDATE
September 28, 2020
Please remember if your child has any chronic/stable health conditions (ex. Headaches, seasonal/environmental allergies) that accounts for any COVID-19 symptoms, and there are not any new or unexplained symptoms of COVID-19, written documentation from your child’s health care provider will need to be on file at school with the diagnoses and list of symptoms included. This will need to be on file before the condition develops. If the appropriate documentation is not on file, COVID-19 guidelines for testing will be followed.
COLDER WEATHER IS COMING:
Be sure to send your child to school with appropriate layers and footwear for recess and other outdoor learning times.

Also, they would like to recommend that students use their school-issued devices on remote learning days, as the home button is set make navigating the various online resources a bit simpler for them.

From the CCS School Board - SAVE THE DATES
In addition to the CCS School Board, there are also two boards that manage operations throughout SAU53. The Executive Board consists of one school board member from each school district. They traditionally meet once a month and serve as a means of communication to keep sending boards informed.The Full SAU Board consists of all members of all district boards.
The SAU Executive Board is working on the SAU budget for 2021/2022. On October 14th there
will be a SAU board meeting at Pembroke Academy at 6:00pm where the proposed budget will
be presented to the full SAU Board. On October 28th there will be a public hearing about the
proposed budget beginning at 6:00pm. At the end of a public hearing, the full SAU Board will
vote on the proposed budget. All are welcomed and encouraged to attend. If you have any
questions please feel free to reach out to any board members.
CCS Grounds Work
You may also notice that there are several things missing from the front of our building. Sadly, we had to remove the memorial Maple tree, as well as the five large shrubs. This was due to the fact that they were growing into our septic lines, beginning to cause damage to our roof, and the roots were beginning to approach the foundation of our building. Due to the intense nature of the roots, unfortunately, none of them were able to be saved. We are looking for ideas for flowers, benches, or other items that could be placed in this area. Please contact Ms. Snider at firstname.lastname@example.org with any ideas!
