2020-2021 School Information

Message from Superintendent
7/31/2020

Bobcat Families,

Please find attached the plans for returning to school. Our highest priority in trying to return to in person learning is the safety of students and staff.  Please read the letter carefully but please remember we are dealing with a very fluid situation and decisions may change based on circumstances and health orders.  I would also like to caution families to be wary of social media rumors as the ones that have been relayed to me so far are blatantly false and tend to cause agitation.  Please feel free to email me directly or call the school.  We know that it is going to be stressful but we are working hard and are committed to provide a quality education in a safe environment in as normal a fashion as we can possibly attain.

Sincerely,

Mike McFalls 

Superintendent

Custer County Schools Need You!

 

Your school needs to be “COVID Ready” for the “opening” August 19th, whatever that looks like! 

 

The administration is preparing multiple scenarios for optimal learning conditions for students and staff.  In order to ensure that we have covered all the situations we can anticipate, we need to dramatically upgrade our IT, distancing options, safety, and health requirements.

 

We are urgently seeking volunteers with the availability and expertise to help with the following:

 

IT requirements

1) Reset & provision 400 chromebooks and tablets for new set up to work on and off campus

2) Install cameras in classrooms & set up with individual users for facial tracking

3) Set up network of devices in 30 classrooms

4) Set up charging station

5) Assist with user base level troubleshooting during initial deployment & training

6) Enter printer codes & assist with "how to" demo for each unit

7) Create user facing How To documents off instruction notes (For Students/ Teachers/Parents)
