From the Desk of Mrs. Adelman

Dear Warwick Bears,


Just a friendly reminder that Tuesday, May 17th (Primary Election Day) is designated as a "Virtual Learning Day". This means that students will participate in 100% online, synchronous instruction following their current instruction schedules. There are some students eligible for special education that will be receiving instruction in-person. Students for in-person learning have already been identified by IEP teams and have attended in-person during other virtual instruction days.


Students will be reminded to bring home all devices and needed materials on Monday afternoon. Teachers have reviewed with students how to access the Teams call for Tuesday.


If you need any technical support, please check our Family Resources page: Technology & Innovation / 1 to 1 Information 21-22 (cbsd.org). Individual schedule questions may be directed to your school office or classroom teachers.


Thank you for your constant support.


Sincerely,


Mrs. Amy Adelman

Screen Time


Do you know how much time your kids spend on their phones/ipads per day?

A report released in October 2019 by the nonprofit organization Common Sense Media found that 8- to 12-year-olds in the United States now use screens for entertainment for an average of 4 hours, 44 minutes a day, and 13- to 18-year-olds are on screens for an average of 7 hours, 22 minutes each day. There is a great likelihood, that since COVID, these numbers are much higher, and they also do not count time using screens for schoolwork or homework.

Want to know for sure how much time your child is on their phone… try this!

Apple phone – settings – Screen time – displays daily average

Android – settings – digital well being – three bar graph in upper right corner

It so important for kids to learn how to self-regulate – which can include time on devices.

For more information on screen time, please see the following articles:

Note from PEN Class


We would like to inform you that PEN is raising money for wildfire relief. The profits we make will go to the Red Cross Foundation. Wildfires are a big problem, and that is why we are raising money to help all the people affected by wildfires each year. We will be displaying a tree with facts about wildfires by the School Store. This tree will begin with no leaves. Your child can purchase a leaf for one dollar and get a raffle ticket for an additional dollar. 100% of the profit made will go to the Red Cross Wildfire Relief. The prize of the raffle is a Lego bonsai tree (a picture of the Lego is attached below). We are trying to raise as much money as possible for this important cause. The leaves and raffle tickets will be sold at the school store starting on May 12th. The school store is open on Thursday mornings. Thank you for helping with wildfire relief.

Have a great weekend,

Warwick PEN Class

Universal Free Lunch Waiver Expiration

School breakfast and lunch has been available for Central Bucks School District students at no cost since March 2020. Reimbursement for the cost of providing these meals has come through a United States Department of Agriculture Waiver issued to the Pennsylvania Department of Education. This waiver suspended free and reduced lunch eligibility requirements, allowing for universal participation in the National School Lunch Program. The waiver is expected to expire at the end of June.

In anticipation of this, we wish to remind families of the following:

  • Eligible families are strongly encouraged to apply for free and reduced lunches. Families may apply through an online application that is safe, secure, and private. Visit cbsd.org/freeandreduced for details. All children in households eligible for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits are eligible for free meals. If you have questions about your family’s eligibility, please send email to Renee Ziccardi at rziccardi@cbsd.org or contact your school nurse.
  • When the waiver expires, students may again purchase lunch, a la carte items, or snacks through their MySchoolBucks account. Now is a good time to log on, bring your child’s account up to date if money is owed, and update expired payment information. Review frequently asked questions about school lunch accounts on our website. Your child will not be able to utilize their account to purchase a la carte items or snacks if it is past due. If you have questions about your child’s account, or if you believe the balance information is inaccurate, please contact Renee Ziccardi at rziccardi@cbsd.org.
