CS
Virginia's Computer Science Education Week (December 7-13) is a week, declared each year by Governor's proclamation, dedicated to celebrating and encouraging students, teachers and families to engage with computer science. CodeVA, partnered with the VDOE and statewide CSTA chapters, offers an entire virtual week of speakers, Family Code Night events, kids activities, student competitions with prizes, and PD sessions for educators, kids and families to get as many people across Virginia using, playing with, and learning about how computer science affects their everyday lives.

The theme for CodeVA’s Computer Science Education week this year is #BringCSHome. All of us are spending more time at home than ever before, so we here at CodeVA want to provide meaningful virtual opportunities for CS learning that engage with our home environments. We can’t wait to #BringCSHome with you!

Event registration and information can be found at www.CSforVA.org.

Our current mask policy requires students and staff to wear face coverings in our schools and classrooms whenever social distancing cannot be maintained. On October 21st, CCPS received guidance from Piedmont Health District officials recommending that students and staff wear face coverings in the classroom even when social distancing can be maintained. As a result, your child will be required to wear face coverings more frequently in his or her classroom. The intent of this change is to make school an even safer place for our students and staff as we adjust to in-person instruction during this pandemic. Thank you for your understanding concerning this procedural change.

 

When Your Child Is Sick  

Sick

Due to continuing concerns with COVID 19 spreading so rapidly in our county, Charlotte County Public School staff may ask that you keep your child home for a longer period of time than usual.  If your child has a fever, cough, cold symptoms or any symptoms that can be related to the COVID 19 virus, we may ask that you keep your child home for 10 days or more, depending on symptoms.  If at the end of 10 days your child still has symptoms, you must continue to keep your child home until he/she is symptom-free for 3 days/72 hours (that’s symptom-free without the help of medications).

 If you feel your child’s symptoms are related to allergies or some other alternative diagnosis, you should have your child evaluated by their medical doctor.  If the medical doctor can attribute your child’s symptoms to an alternative diagnosis or if your child has a negative Covid-19 test, your child’s time out of school could be lessened with written documentation of this diagnosis.   Even with an alternative diagnosis or negative Covid-19 test, your child must be symptom-free (no fever, no cough, etc., without the help of medication) for 3 days/72 hours, BEFORE returning to school. Please do not hesitate to call your school nurse for questions or concerns. 

Thank you for helping us slow the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases by following this protocol.   


 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.

This is a reminder that the wireless hot spots are set up at each elementary school and at the School Board Office parking lots. The network is open twenty-four hours, seven days a week, and is intended for students and the community to use until further notice. 

"Free high-speed internet is now available in the parking lot and pavilion at Eureka Baptist Church for students.  Wifi is open from 6 AM to 9 PM daily." Thanks, Matthew Homan
