Charleston School Community, District staff continue to work hard this summer to prepare for the safe return of students and staff for the 2020-2021 school year. While we are proud of our collective work (within our control) and are looking forward to seeing everyone in our schools soon, we recognize that external circumstances (outside of our control) will likely impact the status of how we begin the school year. Publicly available, local COVID-19 data is monitored by district staff daily, and positive cases are increasing locally. Aside from any debates about the data, district officials want to remind parents of our youngest students to have a plan for securing child care in the event it is needed as we approach the August 17 in-person attendance date and for any time after that. Although today we intend to open for on-site, daily instruction, data and contact tracing indicators may dictate that any classroom, school or entire district could be closed for any given period of time. Having a child care contingency plan in place now can help to prevent added stressors on families in the event classrooms or schools are closed for on-site instruction later. Thank you and stay well. Todd J. Vilardo, Ed.D. Superintendent of Schools

We understand that Remote Learning was unexpected and offered unique challenges for district students, families and staff. As we close out this school year, we are reflecting on the past couple of months and feeling a multitude of emotions. All of us here at CUSD#1 are disappointed we were unable to end the year with the students we care about so deeply. We are appreciative that so many of our teachers went above and beyond to connect with and engage students during this time. Our community empathizes with our students, particularly the high school seniors, who were unable to participate in so many important milestones at the end of their K-12 education. District staff are grateful for all of the families who worked with children at home, despite the stress of work, finances, and pandemic fear. In order to best reflect on this time and plan for the possibility of remote learning in the future, we are seeking your input. Please take a few moments to complete the attached survey. We are also sending a copy of the survey to all students in Grades 6-12, through their school email. We truly value your feedback. Parent/Student survey link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QNSCBZB Thank you for taking the time to reflect with us.
