Jan. 16 Update on Phased Return to In-Person Learning

As a reminder, there will be no school on Monday, January 18 in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King., Jr. Day. Classes for all students will resume on Tuesday, January 19, with traditional students continuing to learn remotely.

As we shared before Winter Break, the district has a contingency plan for a prioritized return to in-person learning for our youngest students. On Monday, January 25, CMCSS Pre-K through sixth-grade traditional students will return to in-person learning. Seventh through twelfth-grade traditional students will continue learning remotely until further notice. Next week, schools will be reaching out to parents and guardians of students in seventh through twelfth grade who are in self-contained, special populations classrooms to share more information about a phased return to in-person learning the week of January 25. After evaluating this phased return, the district will share more information about the return to in-person learning for all traditional students in upper grades.  

On average, there have been around 300 more students per grade level impacted by COVID-19 cases in the district’s upper grades than lower grades. CMCSS is prioritizing an in-person return for younger students and those in self-contained classrooms due to the greater difficulty distance learning poses for these students, the lower transmission rates among younger children, and the greater childcare burden placed on families with younger children. The district is hopeful this phased approach will help address staffing issues due to COVID-19 related leave and the substitute shortage that are expected to continue as the pandemic still exists.

Due to the ever-changing circumstances of the pandemic, families should always have plans in the event that school buildings are closed and remote learning must take place. Additionally, the Tennessee Department of Health’s requirements for contact tracing and quarantines are still in place. Therefore, families should have plans in the event a child must transition to remote learning due to being a close contact to a positive case

Finally, as Onsite Employee Health and Wellness partners with the Montgomery County Health Department to distribute vaccines to CMCSS employees in the coming weeks, the potential exists that schools will temporarily transition to remote learning in order to expedite the vaccination process. The Communications Department will communicate with families as soon as plans are finalized.

ROMS Remote Learning Message

Good Afternoon Hawks,

 

This is your principal, Julie Hallums with a few important reminders.  I hope you and your family have had a healthy and happy holiday season.  I am excited to welcome everyone back for our 2nd semester.   

As you are aware, remote learning will continue through January 22nd for traditional students, with the hopes of our traditional students returning to the building on January 25th.  January 4th will be a synchronous learning day, in which students will engage in live instruction with their teachers, including related arts.  Each day by 6 PM, students will receive agendas from their teachers for the following day, detailing synchronous or asynchronous sessions and other important information.  By now you should have received an agenda for January 4th.  Please remember with the start of a new semester, it is important to check PowerSchool for class changes, paying particular attention to the related arts classes that have changed.

Please find updated related arts information here:  ROMs Related Arts Courses

(Note- The related arts document can only be accessed by students’ CMCSS email/google drive accounts for security purposes.)

 If you should have any questions, please reach out to teachers directly as they are best prepared to provide specific information.  

You may also reach out to one of your grade level counselors below for assistance:

CMCSS Announces Remote Learning Jan. 4-22, 2021

CMCSS will extend remote learning for all CMCSS traditional students through Fri., Jan. 22. The goal is to bring all traditional students back for in-person learning on Mon., Jan. 25.  However, the district has a contingency plan for a prioritized return for pre-k through sixth-grade traditional students it will be prepared to share later if the conditions do not improve for a full return.

On average, there have been around 300 more students per grade level impacted by COVID-19 cases in the district’s upper grades than lower grades. CMCSS would prioritize an in-person return for younger students due to the greater difficulty distance learning poses for our youngest students, the lower transmission rates among this age group, and the greater childcare burden placed on families with younger children. 

While many school systems across the state and nation had limited to no in-person learning over the fall semester, CMCSS faculty, staff, and administrators worked diligently to make traditional learning possible for the parents who chose that option for their children. Over the past week, Clarksville-Montgomery County’s community spread has remained above .8%, and this rate is projected to increase over the next few weeks due to holiday gatherings and travel. In the months before Winter Break, schools across the district struggled with staffing issues due to COVID-19 related leave and the substitute shortage. District leaders remain hopeful that this extended remote period will help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and improve staffing issues so there are less disruptions to learning and schedules. The CMCSS Communicable Disease Team will continue reviewing data and updating families if there are any necessary changes.

At this time, all employees who are not on leave will be expected to report to their work location at their regularly scheduled time. The only exceptions will be some employee groups who will have alternative assignments communicated to them by their supervisors. This is subject to change based on the conditions of the pandemic.

If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a substitute teacher to help address the district’s staffing concerns, please visit cmcss.net/employment for more information. 

CMCSS will continue offering USDA approved no-cost meals through the end of the academic year in May 2021. Weekday meals are available Mondays from 1-2 p.m., and weekend meals are available Fridays from 1-2 p.m. at all CMCSS elementary schools.

Finally, please follow the guidance of our local, state, and national public health officials and medical experts to keep your family, friends, and neighbors healthy by reducing the spread of COVID-19.
