CMCSS announces district-wide remote learning January 4

December 21, 2020

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.
