Updates (Week of 4/6/2020)

(4.9.20) Email to families

Dear CV Families,

This morning, Governor Wolf and Secretary of Education Rivera closed schools for face-to-face instruction for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.  While we have been preparing, as a District, for this possibility, it did not make today’s announcement any easier to hear.  We will continue to move forward with our Continuity of Education Plan for all students, which is on our remote learning site and attached to this email. We know that, for some students and families, remote learning is far from ideal, but it is the option we have at this time and we are committed to supporting all of our students in the most appropriate way possible.

We know that for many students, especially our seniors, today’s announcement is heartbreaking. To our seniors: please know that, as a District, we are committed to ensuring we are able to celebrate your accomplishments in a safe way and that we will be looking at many alternative ways to do this. My heart truly goes out to all of our student athletes and performers as well, who I know work year-round to be prepared for a brief window of time, which has now unfortunately closed. We will also continue to try to identify the best way to provide closure to the year for all students in ways that are safe and meaningful and to look for ways to make up opportunities that our students have missed.

We will provide updates in the coming weeks about how our families can retrieve belongings, after the Governor’s “stay at home” orders are lifted, that are still currently at school.  We also will continue to provide support to families who are struggling to access the remote instructional content our teachers are creating.  I encourage all of our families to attempt to complete the assignments that students are receiving because doing so will greatly support your child’s continued learning with minimal disruption once we are able to come back together in a face-to-face format.

We remain incredibly grateful for your continued support of our District, staff, and programs. A video that further explains the current closure and what it means for CVSD can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oiY6AcD0n4g

With sincere appreciation,

David E. Christopher, Ed.D.
Superintendent of Schools
