As of September 22nd, active COVID-19 cases decreased in Charlotte County for twelve straight days. As of the same date, the last school-aged pediatric case reported for Charlotte County was on September 9th. Due to improvement in our local health data, Charlotte County Public Schools will offer in-person instruction in a hybrid manner to the following groups beginning October 5th:

Pre-Kindergarten
Kindergarten
1st Grade
2nd Grade
6th Grade
9th Grade
Special Education Students (all grade levels)
English Language Learners (all grade levels)

These groups were selected to attend in-person beginning October 5th because they represent our most vulnerable learners and will benefit most from starting two weeks earlier than other groups. Allowing 6th graders and 9th graders to acclimate to their new schools without other students being present will help them tremendously with their transition.

All other grade levels will begin hybrid, in-person instruction on Monday, October 19th. These students will continue with remote instruction until that date.

Students returning on both October 5th and October 19th will attend school in-person two days per week according to their last name. Unless other arrangements have been made through the school principal, students with last names beginning with A-J will attend school in-person on Mondays and Tuesdays while students with last names beginning with K-Z will attend school in-person on Wednesdays and Thursdays. All students will participate in remote learning from home on Fridays. Parents who want their children to continue with fully-remote instruction, and not attend in-person, may continue to do so.

Students will be required to wear masks on all CCPS buses and in all schools. Flexibility for wearing masks may be provided by school officials when social distancing can be maintained. Parents of students who are not able to wear a face-covering for medical reasons will be required to provide their child’s school with documentation from a physician. Mask-wearing is required to help keep our students and staff safe. In addition to wearing masks, students will undergo a health screening by their teacher upon arrival at school. Any student who has COVID-19-related symptoms or a temperature over 100 degrees will be isolated and a parent will be called to pick that child up from school. It is critical that parents check their child’s temperature and symptoms before the child leaves for school in the morning. Do not send your child to school with a fever or any symptoms (sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, runny nose, chills, headache, cold-like symptoms, vomiting, or diarrhea).

If we have a confirmed positive student or staff COVID-19 case in a school, notification letters will be sent home to parents of students in that school. CCPS will work with the Piedmont Health District to determine if additional students must be sent home to quarantine or if schools need to be closed in the event of an outbreak.

Because school buses will begin transporting students on October 5th, at-home meal delivery for students will not take place after Thursday, October 1st. Meals will continue to be available for fully-remote learners at any school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.

Please have your child at his or her bus stop twenty minutes early on the first week of school as pick-up and drop-off times may slightly change due to fewer stops for each bus. These times may change again on October 19th as more grade levels return to in-person instruction.

A frequently asked questions (FAQ) document will be available on the CCPS website tomorrow, Thursday, September 24th, to help answer specific questions. The FAQ document will be updated as new information arises.

I am very excited about the thought of having students back in our schools. Please help us ensure that our schools can remain operational during these times by talking to your child about mask-wearing, social distancing, and hand-washing. Also, I ask you to please not send your child to school with a fever or any other symptoms. As always, I appreciate your support as we work through these difficult times together.

The Registration Link on CCPS's web page is to be used by parents and guardians of returning students to complete their child’s registration. This link replaces the paperwork that was normally sent home with your child at the beginning of every school year. This is a quick and easy tool to use! Please use the snapcode that was mailed to you on each child's paperwork. 

One benefit of using this online process is that if you have more than one child in the school system, the information will carry over from one child to their sibling(s). 

If you have already completed the online registration process, you do not need to complete this again. Please contact your child's school if you have any questions or you need your child’s snapcode.

Attention Parents.  Some ISP (Internet Service Providers) are experiencing an issue with the use of the Chromebooks.  They do have a workaround that changes settings on the gateway.  This setting change could bypass the internet filtering placed on the device by Charlotte County Public Schools.  As always please monitor your child’s internet to ensure safety and security while using the internet.
