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.
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.
If you have chosen the virtual option for your child this upcoming year, we will be having a materials pick up day Wednesday, August 5th, 8:00-12:00 and Thursday, August 6th, 8:00-3:00. We will be sending you a video at the beginning of the week to explain the virtual school agreement. After watching the video, you will be able to come to school to sign the virtual school agreement and pick up your student’s materials and chrome book. Your child must be registered at Theodore Jones to participate. We look forward to seeing you next week.
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!
