In-Person Learning Option
October 28, 2020
The CEG staff has been working well with parents and scholars since the opening of school on August 31, delivering online instruction for all CEG scholars. We are grateful for the partnership of parents, community groups and others who have worked together to provide space and resources for children to learn in a completely virtual setting.
We believe now, as we always have, that children learn best in the presence of a highly qualified, caring teacher who can meet the individualized need of each child. Therefore, we are doing everything we can to provide that opportunity for the children in our care.
During the week of October 5, 2020, CEG surveyed current parents regarding their desire to begin on campus learning or continue online learning. The survey results revealed 43% of parents desired to send their child back to campus for instruction.Based on that, CEG sent a parent survey asking every parent to commit to online or on campus learning. From the parents who responded, 52% of our students will to return on campus.
CEG will open as stated below and will follow the plan approved by the state and reviewed by SCHD. We are asking parents to commit to their decision from campus re-opening through December 18. At that point they can make changes effective in January.
On campus learning will be phased in beginning November 12. Grades K-2 and 6th will begin at 7:20am Thurs. Nov. 12 and grades 3-5 and 7-8 join them Fri. Nov .13 which means everyone would be on campus by Friday Nov 13.
Based on this opening date, parents have time to:
- Purchase uniforms, masks and school supplies
- Arrange for transportation if needed (busses will begin running on the first day open for those eligible for transportation provided by the school)
- Prepare to return any CEG issued Chromebook for the student to use at school and the hotpot to be kept at school until needed in the future
