January 11, 2021 Dear CUSD #20 Families and Staff: As the second semester resumes, it is apparent that COVID-19 continues to cause concern for our District. Unfortunately, CUSD #20 has had six positive COVID-19 tests amongst the staff and another four confirmed cases with our students. These individuals have been quarantined along with other staff and students that were determined to be in close contact with a positive case. These cases are not limited to one setting. All three of our schools have individuals that have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus and quarantined since school resumed on January 5th. At this time, the Lawrence County Health Department and CUSD #20 school nurses have been in contact with all individuals affected by this most recent outbreak of positive cases. We ask that all parents and guardians monitor their child(ren) for symptoms. The health and safety of our students and staff is our highest priority, and we recognize the uncertainty and concern regarding the evolving COVID-19 pandemic. We are following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as the state and local health departments that outline best practices and procedures in order to protect everyone’s health. As always, individuals should closely monitor their health. If symptoms develop, please stay home and contact your healthcare provider to determine if testing is needed. Anyone who develops severe symptoms should seek medical care immediately. If your child has had close contact with a known case of COVID-19, keep your child at home and notify your primary healthcare provider, school, daycare, and local health department. We are committed to providing our students and our staff with a safe and healthy learning environment. As always, thank you for your ongoing cooperation and understanding regarding our COVID-19 prevention policies and procedures as we remain steadfast in our commitment to protect your children and family as well as our staff and their families. Sincerely, Doug Daugherty CUSD #20 Superintendent

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 email@example.com. 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.
November 12, 2020 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 email@example.com. 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.
At last night’s special board meeting, the Lawrence County CUSD #20 Board of Education voted not to go to an all-remote learning setting. We will continue to monitor the situation and reevaluate as necessary. As always, feel free to contact the District through email at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
October 30, 2020 Dear CUSD #20 Families and Staff: With the increased number of Covid cases in both the community and our schools, CUSD #20 is considering the possibility of going to a district-wide remote learning setting. If the district makes the decision to do remote learning, it would begin on Monday, November 23rd and last until at least Tuesday, January 19th. Again, this is only a possibility. We will inform the public if/when we decide to do this. We wanted to make everyone aware of the possibility of going to district-wide remote learning so that everyone is aware of what is being discussed and will be prepared IF we go to district-wide remote learning. The district chose this timeframe for remote learning due to the likelihood of increased contact with people outside the family home during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Day. During this 7 week timeframe, we will be doing 5 weeks of remote learning and have 2 weeks of Christmas Break. We are working to determine our plans, and we will keep everyone informed going forward. We have scheduled a special board meeting for Thursday, November 5th so that the Board can discuss this situation and make a determination on how best to move forward.. If you have any questions, please contact the District through email at email@example.com. Sincerely, Doug Daugherty, Superintendent CUSD #20
All schools will be closed next Tuesday, November 3rd for Election Day.

Along with these students, we are sending home another 40 students due to close contact to the positive students. This exposure has happened both at school and on the school bus. Names of those involved will not be released by the school due to confidentiality reasons. If your child was in close contact with any individual who tested positive, the Lawrence County Health Department will be contacting you. At this time, all school buildings will remain open. If changes need to be made in this policy, we will make an announcement as soon as possible. If you have questions, please contact us through email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sincerely, Doug Daugherty, Superintendent CUSD #20

They will remain in quarantine until further notice. Names of those involved will not be released by the school due to confidentiality reasons.

September 4, 2020 CUSD #20 Parents and Guardians, There is an ongoing problem in the school district that needs to be rectified immediately. Parents who have students at Parkview received an email yesterday from Mr. Brush. However this issue is occurring at all three buildings, so I want to make all parents aware of the situation. On Thursday, September 3rd, the district was required to send home five (5) staff members and three (3) students who had been in close contact with a student who recently tested positive for COVID. These individuals will be quarantined until Tuesday, September 15th. These staff members and students will NOT be publicly identified by the school district as that is a violation of privacy law. I can assure you that by working with the Lawrence County Health Department, we were able to quickly locate all individuals who needed to quarantine. Those families have been contacted. Everyone has to do their part to control the spread of COVID-19. At any time, if anyone in your household is tested, due to illness not job related, your child(ren) MUST REMAIN AT HOME until the tested person receives notice that their test result is negative. In addition, if a student is showing ANY symptoms of COVID-19, DO NOT send him/her to school. The major symptoms of COVID-19 are: FEVER COUGH FATIGUE BODY ACHE CONGESTION SHORTNESS OF BREATH If you have any questions, please contact us through email@example.com. Sincerely, Doug Daugherty, Superintendent Lawrence County CUSD #20
CUSD #20 Parents: The increased number of students going to remote learning and the lack of internet access for some students has caused a problem. The school district was able to purchase some hotspots through T-mobile, but those hotspots have been distributed and we are unable to obtain more at this time. I have contacted local businesses in the area to see who would have outdoor WIFI access that they would allow our students to use. The following businesses welcome parents/students to park in their parking lots to use their Internet. Bobe’s Pizza Syd’s Tacos AgriGold Lawrence Public Library We thank these businesses for allowing our students access to their WIFI. Please be respectful of their property and their customers. Also, all three school buildings have outdoor WIFI accessibility.
Friday, September 4th, dismissal time will be the same as it has been all year. Monday, September 7th, we will be off school for Labor Day.
CUSD #20 Parents: If someone in your household is tested for Covid, all school aged children in that home need to be quarantined until the test results come back. We have to work together to prevent the spread of this virus, so please keep your children home when they are sick or when anyone in the home is tested for Covid.
