SCHOOL CLOSURE-Please read this important message!

Good Morning,

Over the last several weeks, the coronavirus (COVID-19) has been the focus of many health concerns. Proactive school closures have been shown to be one of the most effective interventions that we can deploy. Proactive school closures are about keeping children safe while assisting in the protection of the health of the whole community.

After careful consideration and in cooperation with the the Montgomery County Health Department and other county school officials, Crawfordsville Community School Corporation will cease in-person instruction effective March 16, 2020, through March 20, 2020. Schools will utilize distance learning (eLearning) each of the next five school days to prevent the spread of the virus. Spring break will be observed from March 23-March 27 as previously scheduled.

Effective immediately, all school-related activities and extra-curricular events are canceled. Information will be forthcoming regarding rescheduled events. Crawfordsville Schools will continue conversations with the Montgomery County Health Department to monitor the current health conditions in Montgomery County and Central Indiana to determine the best course of action moving forward.

Teachers will be available during regular school hours to answer any questions. They will inform students and parents whether to use email, school phone, Canvas or Dojo for communication.

Both online assignments and written assignments will be sent home with students. If a student is absent March 13, please call the school to make arrangements to pick up student work next week. All work assigned during the 5-day period will be due when students return to school.

Crawfordsville Community School Corporation is closing school to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 by limiting direct contact between students. Parents are encouraged to assist in this effort by keeping their children away from large gatherings of individuals. The school corporation will utilize the two weeks (including spring break) to continue our efforts in cleaning and sanitizing all areas of each building.

School meals will be provided each day next week. Location and other details are forthcoming.

We will provide updates as needed via direct emails to parents. Specific questions or concerns about the coronavirus should be directed to the Montgomery County Health Department at (765) 364-6440, the ISDH Epidemiology Resource Center at 317-233-7125 (317-233-1325 after hours) or your medical provider.

Thank you for your cooperation during this time of uncertainty,

Scott Bowling, Superintendent

eLearning Packets

Everyone Reads!

Your child brought home a book mark for the Everyone Reads event scheduled March 14th. Unfortunately this event has been cancelled.

Fun Friday!

We will try to have a fun activity for the whole school every Friday. Information will be posted here, on our Willson Preschool Facebook page, flyers and Class Dojo!

Friday March 20th is - No fun Friday.

Family Fun!

The Family Fun section of our digital newsletter will focus on a fun, family activity that reinforces the theme that we are working on in school. It will be a story, a song, or an outdoor activity that everyone can work on together.

This game below is super easy to make at home. Make up some fun dinosaur moves to boost your kiddos gross motor skills!

Take some snapshots or video of your family enjoying this activity and send them through the Willson Preschool Facebook page. We will share your pictures so everyone can see our awesome Willson families!

Info for Kindergarten Roundups

Below are the flyers for Kindergarten Roundup for Crawfordsville, North Montgomery and South Montgomery School Districts. We will send Crawfordsville flyers home with all students so families can share the information. Willson will not have classes on Friday, April 24th since most of our students will be at Hose Elementary for Roundup. Please let us know if you have any questions. Unfortunately we cannot keep them here forever, even though we would love it!

Transportation notes

We are still having children returned to school because there is no one to meet them at the bus stop. It's impossible for the drivers to arrive at exactly the same time every day due to traffic, trains, construction and varying schedules. Please be ready and waiting 15 minutes before your scheduled pick up and drop off time. Please read the transportation notice below!

If your child misses the bus picking them up and you can bring them to school, please drop off in car line. Our car line meets in the parking lot off Wabash Ave. Doors do not open for school until 7:50 AM for AM classes and 11:20 AM for PM classes. You cannot drop off earlier than those times.
