It was great to have Timberwolves back on campus this week while also continuing distance learning for many of our students.  Teachers, staff, parents, and students should all be commented for following all safety protocols and ensuring a smooth re-opening to in person instruction.  

Our first week of in person learning went very well.  Please read and review a few reminders to ensure an even more successful second week.

§  Please use the designated cross-walks in front of the school

§  Pick up times are:

§  AM cohort – 11:30 – 11:45 a.m.

§  Any student who has not been picked up by 11:45 a.m. will be brought to the office and someone on the emergency card will need to sign the student out.

§  PM cohort – 3:15 -3:30 p.m.

§  Any student who has not been picked up by 3:30 p.m. will be brought to the office and someone on the emergency card will need to sign the student out.

§  TK – Gr. 1 students need to be picked up by parent or sibling. Parents need to park and walk to the gate.

§  Gr. 2 students who are being picked up by a car need to walk down to the flagpole area and stand on a paw.

§  Pickup circle: If you are picking up your child from the pickup circle in a vehicle, please pull forward and pick your child up from the front of the school nearest the flagpole.

§  If a student is sent home from school because they exhibit COVID-19 symptoms, they will not be allowed back on campus for 10 days or a negative COVID-19 test.  This test must be a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.

§  If a student is a close contact to a COVID-19 positive person outside of school, the student will need to quarantine for 14 days. The student will be assigned asynchronous work by their Hybrid teacher.

Testing is voluntary. Participants have the option of only doing one of the tests or both, and they are offered at no cost (covered through health insurance or reimbursable to testing provider Kahala Biosciences under the CARES Act for those who do not have insurance). Per requests, immediate family/household members are also eligible to participate. To schedule an appointment, please click here or cut and paste the following into your web browser: https://kahalabiosciences.com/cvesd-safe/

The process for reopening schools can begin once the county moves from the Purple Tier to the Red Tier.  We do not have an official start date, but with transmission rates declining across the county we need to begin to finalize our reopening plans at Wolf Canyon.  We are in the process of creating our In Person (Hybrid) Rosters, Distance Learning Rosters and teacher assignments. In order to finalize this process, your child’s classroom teacher will be in contact with you in the next couple of weeks to verify your families preference for In Person (Hybrid ) or Distance Learning. 

It is important to note that families who select In Person (Hybrid) might not get their preference of AM.  Please communicate any extenuating circumstance with your child’s teacher. 

Our hybrid schedule, will be 8:45 to 11:30 M-TH or 12:30-3:15 M-TH with all Distance Learning on Friday. If your child is staying in the Distance Learning format, their schedule will remain fairly consistent. 

If you would like additional information about Reopening, please read the district handbook for parents. (See below with link attached)
