Dear CUSD #20 Families and Staff,

At the monthly school board meeting on Wednesday, November 18th, the decision was made for all CUSD #20 students to remain in a remote learning only setting thru Friday, December 18, 2020. While this wasn’t an easy decision, we feel it is what is best for the students, staff, and community at this time.

At this time, the plan is to return to school on Tuesday, January 5, 2021. However, at the December board meeting, the Board of Education will evaluate the Covid situation to decide whether to extend the remote learning only setting or return to school.

While everyone would rather see the students in the classroom and participating in extracurricular activities, this decision was brought about by the increased number of Covid-19 cases in the community as well as the school district. Lawrence County Health Department Director, Amy Marley, attended the meeting and informed the board of the number of current cases in the county as well as predicted increases in cases over the next few weeks.

The Lawrence County Health Department, the CUSD #20 Board of Education, and the CUSD #20 administration are asking that everyone please continue to do their part to control this virus. Remember to wash your hands, wear your mask, maintain social distancing, and stay home whenever possible. Once the virus numbers decrease, the staff and students of CUSD #20 can resume their normal schooling methods.

In addition, CUSD #20 encourages parents to continue to monitor their children’s schoolwork as we continue with remote learning. Be sure to watch for more news and information in the next few weeks as we continue to combat this unprecedented virus. The district will continue serving meals to students on days that school is in session through the end of December.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns you may contact your child’s teacher, their school or reach us at the email help@cusd20.net. Remember, that working together is what we all need to do during these trying times.

Sincerely,



Doug Daugherty
Superintendent, CUSD #20

CUSD #20
November Remote Plan

DATES
Monday, November 16th - Remote planning day for staff members. There will be no homework for students on this day.

Tuesday, November 17th-Tuesday, November 24th - All students with Internet access will begin their remote learning. Students will have assignments on both the Acellus program and/or Google classroom. Parkside face-to-face learners may pick up packets from 7:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, November 17th. The completed packets must be turned in on November 30th.

Wednesday, November 25th-Friday, November 27th - No School/Thanksgiving break. Students will not be given assignments during these dates. Teachers will not be available to assist students.

Monday, November 30th - In-person learning will resume. Parkside face-to-face learners return packets.

LUNCHES
The District will be serving meals to students at various locations throughout the district during remote learning. As we have done in the past, parents/guardians will need to call-in to place their order for lunch. Please call Parkside (943-3992), Parkview (943-2327) or LHS (943-3389) to let them know your name, number of lunches needed, and your pick-up location.

Meals will be available for pick-up at Parkside Elementary School, Central Christian Church, St. Francisville Church, Russellville Church, Casey’s bus stop, Lincoln School bus stop, 12th & Wabash bus stop, and 4th & Jefferson bus stop. Staff members will be at the pick-up sites in school vehicles from 11:00 to 11:30 to distribute meals.

Building secretaries will be available beginning Friday, November 13th to take orders for meals. We ask that orders be placed before 9:00 am for any day that you would like a meal. You may place an order for all seven days or selected dates. We also ask that you let the school know if there is a change in the number of meals that you would like each day. Each meal will also include a breakfast item for the following morning as well.

PACKETS
We have yet to receive all of the computers ordered back in May, therefore, we are unable to provide every student at Parkside with a computer. Due to that fact, Parkside face-to-face learners will be provided with packets instead of a computer. However, if a student has access to a computer at home, they may complete the work online. Packets will be available on Tuesday, November 17th and will contain all of the student’s work for the remote learning session. Packets will be returned on November 30th.

Packets will also be available on Tuesday, November 17th for any Parkview student who does not have access to the Internet.

INTERNET ACCESS
We are in the process of ordering more hotspots and will distribute them to Parkview and Lawrenceville High School students without Internet access as soon as possible. In the meantime, LHS and Parkview will be opening their cafeterias for students to come in to utilize the Internet. Building principals will be sending out more information on their building use during the remote learning days.

Students are allowed to schedule an appointment with their teacher for a short meeting not to exceed 15 minutes. This will allow the teacher to provide face-to-face clarification on assignments to students who are struggling with a particular concept as needed. To set up a meeting, please contact your child’s teacher directly through email. All appointments will take place at the school during normal school hours.

Dear CUSD #20 Families and Staff,

Due to a spike in Covid-19 cases in both the community and school district, all CUSD #20 students will be going to a remote learning only setting starting Monday, November 16th. We plan to return to school on Monday, November 30th.

The District is in the process of finalizing our remote learning plan and will be releasing details as soon as possible. Information about meals, learning packets, and availability of the Internet will be released at that time. I ask for your patience as we finalize plans and please refrain from calling the school buildings at this time. Once information is released, we will be available to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have through email at help@cusd20.net.

Sincerely,



Doug Daugherty
Superintendent, CUSD #20

The meaning of Veterans Day is an important part of the learning process for the students of CUSD #20. Each year we are proud to celebrate our veterans. Our celebrations will have to be different this year because of the restrictions that are part of our lives right now.

To show respect and admiration to our heroes who have served our country, CUSD #20 will be placing flags on the grounds of each school. Each student will plant a flag to represent those who have served, past and present. We encourage all veterans to drive by each school and know this is our way of honoring your great service.

You can see the flags by driving west on Cedar Street, past Parkview. At Parkside, you can enter the grounds through the north driveway, on Cedar Street, and exit by the football stadium. From there, you can cross Porter Avenue and enter the Lawrenceville High School grounds, then exit out the driveway next to SipIt on to James Street. The flags will be visible by the end of the day on Monday, November 9th. The viewing route will be open Tuesday, November 10th and Wednesday, November 11th.

All of the teachers, staff and students of CUSD #20 want to show respect and gratitude to our amazing veterans. We thank you for your service and we hope you enjoy our flag display to honor you on this Veterans Day.
