Custer County School District C-1 moves to Remote Learning Plan.

 

On Wednesday, March 18, 2020, Colorado Governor Jared Polis ordered that all public and private schools in Colorado close until April 17, 2020.  Being proactive to the Governor's order, Custer County School District C-1 had already determined to implement the district’s Remote Learning Plans effective Monday, March 23, 2020.  The Remote Learning Plan will continue until April 17, 2020 or until the Governor informs school districts that we are allowed to resume on campus instruction.  Participation in the Remote Learning Plan is mandatory.

Custer County Elementary homeroom teachers will be contacting parents/guardians to offer remote learning options for students in preschool through 5th grade.  As Custer County Schools recognizes that not all families have access to the internet, parents/guardians are being offered learning packets to any family who needs them.  It is important to note that learning packets will contain the same material as online learning and will be graded using the same criteria.

Custer County Middle School and High School advisory teachers will be contacting parents/guardians to offer remote learning options for students in grades 6th through 12.  As Custer County Schools recognizes that not all families have access to the internet, parents/guardians are being offered learning packets to any family who needs them.

 

**Scholarship updates will be posted to the “Class of 2020” Google Classroom for seniors to access information.  Seniors may contact CCHS counselor Troy Bomgardner @ troy.bomgardner@ccbobcats.net if they have any questions.

 

Custer County School District is working to take the utmost precautions to ensure student, staff, and community health and safety.  We are thankful to have such a positive response from our parents and families.  We will do our best to continue providing good communication and will do our best to provide a quality remote learning program for our students.

 

For those families who have chosen the option of learning packets, packets will be available Wednesday, March 25, 2020 from 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM.  Custer County School District C-1 will distribute packets using a drive-through model.  Families are asked to enter the southeast parking lot and follow the route as if they were dropping off students.  A staff member will greet parents/guardians at their vehicle and radio into the school building for the student’s packet.  At this time, another staff member will deliver the packet to parents/guardians.  It is important to note that staff members will be wearing PPE and that parents/guardians are not allowed in the school building.

Bobcat Families,
In an effort to keep our families informed we want to communicate our preparation for potential infectious disease. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are monitoring developments with an increased sense of vigilance. While there are currently no confirmed cases in the county or school, we want to take this opportunity to provide you information about how CCSD is monitoring this issue and what you can expect in the event of further outbreak.


Custer County School District has been coordinating with Custer County Public Health Agency, the Office of Emergency Management, and the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) on preparedness plans to ensure the safety of our students and staff while maintaining the continuity of learning. Disinfecting is a standard part of our cleaning protocols but we have increased attention to areas that have frequent contact which includes buses. Additional cleaning products have been purchased and are being utilized. Attendance rates are being monitored and parents are re-educated on when a sick child should stay home from school to limit spread of illness.

Just as recommended for other respiratory illnesses, people can protect themselves and others through some simple actions:
-Continue your normal routine if you are healthy. This means you can continue to
participate in public gatherings such as work, school, or social activities.
-If you are ill, please stay home to prevent spreading your illness to others.
- Cough or sneeze into a sleeved arm or cover your nose and mouth with a tissue.
Throw away the tissue after you use it and wash your hands.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth
- Wash your hands frequently and for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
- Avoid sharing cups or eating utensils with others
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces such as desks, doorknobs,
and handrails.


Information from Custer County Public Health Agency and Office of Emergency Management
can be found at their websites and local Facebook pages. We will forward information as it is
provided to us. Your child’s wellness is our primary concern and we will do our best to keep you informed.
