   Employee Spotlight
CMCSS SROs, SUBSTITUTES, WAREHOUSE, BOOK PROCESSING

In CMCSS, we share a vision for the well-being of each of our students. Without the dedication and determination of our School Resource Officers, Substitutes, Warehouse, and Book Processing employees, implementing this vision would be impossible. Each day, this diverse group keeps our schools safe, classrooms operating effectively in the absence of teachers, and ensures students and employees have the textbooks, furniture and other resources they need to succeed.

Thank you, SROs, Substitutes, Warehouse, and Book Processing employees. You show up each day to protect and serve our students. Your planning and preparation ensure our schools operate effectively and efficiently.

Thank you for serving above and beyond every year.

On Monday, February 22, parents/guardians of CMCSS students will receive a survey via email for the district to collect feedback about the 2020-21 school year. Annually, the district gathers feedback from stakeholders to identify opportunities to better serve the community and meet student needs. On this year’s survey, the district will ask a few questions specific to its COVID-19 response and reopening plan.

Each parent/guardian will receive one link for each child in his/her household. If parents/guardians have recently changed their email addresses, they should use the Parent Self-Service Portal at parents.cmcss.net to update contact information. Using this process ensures that information is correct in PowerSchool, SchoolMessenger, and a child’s emergency card. Thank you in advance for completing the survey. Your feedback is important!

Due to continued hazardous road conditions, tomorrow, Friday, February 19 will be a remote learning day for all CMCSS students. For all traditional and virtual students, teachers will continue communicating how to access lessons. If you have questions about accessing or submitting student work, please contact your child’s teacher(s). Curbside meals will not be distributed tomorrow.

We thank all of our teachers and instructional support staff for their hard work and dedication to make remote learning possible, and we thank our students and families for their flexibility and patience as we all navigate this “new normal” of schooling. Although the district must continue providing instruction when buildings are closed during inclement weather because of the waiver to use stockpile days at the start of the school year (www.cmcss.net/blog/2020/07/10/reopening-information-announced/), we hope the flexibility of remote instruction has allowed for many of the same special snow day memories of years past.

Stay warm, stay safe, and have a great weekend, CMCSS families!

Due to continued hazardous road conditions, tomorrow, Wednesday, February 17 and Thursday, February 18 will be remote learning days for all CMCSS students.

All traditional and virtual students in Kindergarten through 8th grade will have asynchronous learning days. However, for families with students in special populations or students receiving RTI instruction, teachers will continue providing live intervention instruction and will communicate with families regarding schedules. For tomorrow, K-8 students should complete lessons on their laptops as assigned by their teachers for Inclement Weather Day Number 4. There are copies of the inclement weather assignments directly on your student’s laptop to be used if internet access is not available. Teachers will provide more information on lessons for Thursday. Additionally, elementary teachers will be reaching out to schedule small groups.

For high school traditional and virtual students, teachers will continue communicating how to access lessons.

If you have questions about accessing or submitting student work, please contact your child’s teacher(s).

Although a decision has not yet been made for Friday, based on current weather predictions for another winter weather event on Wednesday and Thursday, there is a strong possibility the remote closure could be extended. Please have preparations in the event that school buildings are closed and remote learning must take place.

Happy Monday! Have a wonderful week! #cmcss #schoolsystem #clarksvilletn #clarksvilletennessee #iloveclarksville #mondaymotivation ...

Monday, January 4 will be a remote learning day for all CMCSS traditional students. District leadership has reviewed Gov. Lee’s Executive Order #70 and is seeking guidance from local and state agencies on its implications for in-person learning through mid-January. Over Winter Break, district leaders will continue meeting to review the latest data and guidance to make decisions in the best interest of the physical, social, and emotional health and well-being of students and employees. If remote learning needs to be extended, the district will make every effort to communicate this extension to families no later than Monday, December 28.

District leaders understand changes like these present challenges for families and strive not to disrupt in-person learning unless deemed necessary as CMCSS responds to the conditions of the pandemic.

The district cannot reiterate enough that families choosing traditional, in-person learning for their child(ren) should make preparations throughout the year in the event that school buildings are closed and remote learning must take place. The CMCSS Communicable Disease Team and the Montgomery County Health Department review the local spread of COVID-19 and other data on a daily basis to make school-based and district-wide decisions. As of yesterday, Montgomery County’s community spread reached an all-time high of 0.859% and has continued to increase 12 out of the last 14 days.

Please follow the guidance of our local, state, and national public health officials and medical experts to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
