CCPS Friday Update – March 27, 2020

Posted on

Team Chesterfield families and staff:

A couple of updates as we continue to build out what the rest of the school year looks like. (Additional information about how teacher-led/supported, at-home learning might look like after Spring Break will be shared next week.)

More information about important changes to the meal delivery is coming in a separate communication today.

 

Kindergarten registration is postponed

Due to our inability to host large gatherings, Kindergarten Registration Day (originally scheduled for April 16) has been postponed.

We will reschedule this important opportunity to welcome approximately 4,500 new students to our Team Chesterfield family. When that will occur is an unknown at this point. Restrictions related to large gatherings must be lifted for kindergarten registration to occur. As soon as these restrictions are eliminated, we will announce a new registration date.

Preregistration for kindergarten is available online. This will shorten a family’s visit to school on the actual registration day. Click here to learn more: https://mychesterfieldschools.com/family-and-community-engagement/preparing-for-school/student-registration/kindergarten-registration/.

Playgrounds and courts off limits

Designed to attempt to mitigate opportunities for community gathering, in accordance with social distancing recommendations, all Chesterfield County Public Schools’ playgrounds, tracks, fields, basketball courts and tennis courts are closed until further notice. This is largely aligned with steps being taken by the county government’s Parks and Recreation Department at their facilities.

All outside basketball rims are being removed, as are nets on tennis courts and soccer fields. Tracks and stat

We appreciate your compliance with social distancing recommendations. The quicker we can stop the spread, the quicker life can begin to return to normal.

Chromebook repairs

Chesterfield County Public Schools has developed a plan to provide support for school division-issued Chromebooks during this extended school closure:

  • Every Tuesday at Thomas Dale and Matoaca high schools from 9 a.m. until noon
  • Every Thursday at CTC@Hull and Robious Middle from 1-4 p.m.

A parent and/or student will need to provide their student ID number in order to adjust the school division’s inventory records. Support is limited to students in grades 5-12, who already are participating in the Chromebook take-home program.

Appropriate social distancing protocol will be followed to protect students and staff.

For clarification purposes: While the CCPS Internet network is available to families while in the parking lot, the school division is not giving out free hotspot devices at these repair stations.
