Ida Burns Announcements
CPSD will have our regular weekend boxes available for students to take home Thursday afternoon as we have done for the last few weeks: however, the district will not be distributing food boxes for the duration of the holiday break. Issues with our supply chain as well as USDA restrictions make it impossible to do so at this time. Virtual student’s meal box distribution will resume on January 4th. As a reminder, the USDA has extended the waiver for all students to eat free meals through the end of the 2020-2021 school year, regardless of eligibility.
If you are in need of assistance, information on CAPCA and other food pantries can be found at: www.foodpantries.org/ci/ar-conway
CPSD will have Thanksgiving Food Boxes prepared for families to pick up this Friday, November 20th, from 9am-noon at the Food Service Warehouse. (1902 Hairston Street) These boxes are available at no cost to all CPSD students. The first 1,000 boxes will even include a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner! We are thankful for our Food Service Workers!
In the last week, Ida Burns Elementary School has seen an increase in the number of COVID cases and students and staff who have had to be quarantined as a result of exposure. Ida Burns will pivot to virtual instruction beginning tomorrow, Friday November 13th- Friday November 20th. All onsite students will work virtually from home. Students should log into Seesaw to communicate with teachers about classes and assignments.
Meal boxes for the week will be available for all students to pick up Monday morning from 9-11 am at the Food Service Warehouse. (1902 Hairston)
We ask for your support and cooperation as we make this decision in the best interest of our staff and our students. Please help us by limiting your students’ group interactions and activities outside of school. Thank you.
This Friday October 23rd is a "Virtual Day" for Conway Schools teachers and students. This is different from "Blended Fridays." On virtual days, all students will learn from home, similar to AMI days in the past. Teachers will be working virtually as well. Students should log into Seesaw or Schoology to complete assignments for Friday. (No new material will be covered.)
Sallie Cone Preschool is included in the virtual day.
School resumes next week on our regular schedule Monday-Thursday (10/26-10/29), with Blended Friday (10/30) at the end of the week.
