Greetings CSS Family
We hope you and yours are doing well. Today we would like to announce that CSS will go to FULL REMOTE learning starting on August 17, 2020. We have been working diligently over the summer to come up with the safest & healthiest way to begin this school year and had hoped that we would be welcoming students & staff into the building. With CMS deciding last week to go completely remote, we feel at this time that CSS should follow Plan C as well to ensure the safety of our students and staff.
We still have quite a few details to work out and will update you as soon as we can. We are planning an Open House of sorts and appreciate your patience with us as we continue to plan for this school year.
Attendance will be taken daily, for each class. Full participation from students is expected online in all classes. To be counted present, high school students are required to participate in online Zoom classes and/or complete a check-in assignment. Middle school students are required to be present and participate in the entire Zoom class meeting everyday for each block.
The instructional day is from 8:00 AM to 1:00 PM (online). Students will attend classes by block according to their schedule. Teacher office hours are from 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM. Teachers will be available to meet virtually with parents and students upon request.
All assignments will be graded and used to calculate final grades. At this time, state testing has not been waived for the upcoming school year. CSS will continue to prepare students for NC Check-ins, EOC and EOG assessments.
Middle and high school will operate on a four block schedule of 60 minute classes with a 10 minute transition time between classes. There will be a 30 minute break after the second block.
Following the class schedule times from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm, teachers and staff will also be available for ‘Office Hours’ from 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm. This time is reserved for questions, comments, concerns, extra help, clarity, etc.. Parents, students, and teachers can schedule Zoom conferences during this time. Zoom conferences must be scheduled in advance.
