CLE: See the attached graphic on a few helpful tips to make the transition back to school a little easier.
Attention ON-SITE Kindergarten Families:
If your child will be attending kindergarten as an ON-SITE student this fall, we would like to invite you to a Back To School Supply Drop Off!
We want to help our kindergarten students and their families feel welcome and ready by providing an opportunity to drop off supplies and meet your teacher! On August 19th and 20th (see the graphic for more details) ONE parent/guardian and the child will be able to attend this "come and go event." Class lists/assignments will be made available on Wednesday.
We do ask that you adhere to the following guidelines:
-Maximum of 10 minutes in the classroom
-Masks are required, for both the adult and the student
Also, for on-site kindergarten students only, during the first 3 days (August 24th-26th) of school, you have the option of waiting to drop off your student until 9:00 a.m. before they are considered tardy. Please know that for the safety of our faculty and students, parents will NOT be allowed to walk their child into their classroom on the first day of school.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you.
The deadline for decisions about fall re-entry is Friday, August 14 at noon. Parents who have not made a definitive decision or who wish to change their decision need to contact their child’s school to communicate this information. Once school starts, if adjustments are needed, each family will be afforded the opportunity to make one change during the fall semester. If the student is attending on-site and wishes to transition to virtual, or if the student is attending virtually and needs to return to on-site instruction, the parent should contact the building administrator to be apprised of next steps.
A message from Nurse Shelly!
To help our students and families acclimate back into the school environment and learn new health and safety procedures in place at our school buildings, and to give teachers additional time to support individual students, Conway Public Schools will begin the 2020-21 School Year with a staggered start.
Only students whose last name begins with the letter(s) A-M will come to school on August 24th.
Only students whose last name begins with the letter(s) N-Z will come to school on August 25th.
All students will attend school on August 26th.
If students reside in the same household but have different last names, the principal will make all accommodations necessary to assist those families. Please contact your school if you have questions or need assistance.
During the first two days of school, teachers and staff will work with students to ensure the following:
Students have the technology and resources for use at home and at school.
Students receive support from the teacher to learn how to use the Learning Management System (Seesaw K-4; Schoology 5-12).
Students understand the protocols and procedures put in place for PPE usage and compliance with distancing and other guidelines from the Departments of Health and Education.
It is now time for our “Returning Student Registration,” where we ask you to update your information for the 2020-21 School Year! “Annual Required Forms” are now available online here https://ar50000572.schoolwires.net/Page/277 for returning students in grades 1-12. Please login and complete these forms now. Completion of the forms is required- for students in both the virtual and onsite learning environments- to begin the 2020-21 school year.
You will need your CPSD login and password to complete the Annual Required Forms. This information has been emailed to you if we have your correct email address. If you do not have your login, or you need other assistance, please call your child’s school where someone will be available to help you.
Annual Required Forms should be completed for all students prior to the first day of school. Students will not be able to use computers or have access to digital learning platforms until parents have signed the mandatory usage agreements found in returning registration.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. We are looking forward to a great school year!
