Corona Virus Update in CMCSS

Over the past few weeks, a Communicable Disease Team (CDT) comprised of leaders from CMCSS and the Montgomery County Health Department have been meeting regularly to review the latest guidance from the CDC, monitor the health and attendance of CMCSS students and employees, and make recommendations to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases.

While the district has been implementing proactive measures to reduce the spread of illness, after reviewing the latest guidance, the CDT has made additional recommendations that will be communicated to parents and guardians via SchoolMessenger, video, social media, website, and local media today, Thursday, March 12.
All after school activities in CMCSS are cancelled today, March 12. Please refer to your email, the CMCSS website, and CMCSS social media
Travel – effective immediately, all school- or district-sponsored travel on for-hire transportation (charter bus, planes, etc.) for students and employees will be suspended through April 8.
The district will work with schools to make every reasonable legal effort to seek refunds for cancelled trips to the extent refunds are not extended upon the school’s cancellation. If costs are not refunded, the district will work with schools and parents to make efforts to provide reimbursements.
Trips via CMCSS transportation will continue to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for approval. Travel will not be permitted to schools, districts, or other venues where there are school closures. Further guidance will be provided should there be any school or district closures.
The CDT will continue to monitor best practices and will provide further guidance ahead of April 8.

COVID-19 information is continuing to evolve as the experts learn more about this disease. We know there is a lot of fear and anxiety around this pandemic, and we assure you the CDT is continuously monitoring this situation. While education is important, the health and well-being of our students and staff are far more significant. We will continue to update you, and we welcome your questions and feedback.

Reading Kickoff Next Week

Next week, August 26- 30, is our reading kickoff at school. Our theme is Reading Moves Mountains. Each day our school will have 15 minutes of school wide power reading – students will take AR quizzes to test their comprehension after reading. The top readers from each day will be featured on live announcements. At the end of the week, the top 5 students from each grade level will be rewarded with a picnic lunch. The top grade level will have a rock painting party. We are going to have spirit days each day next week.  A flyer will be sent home with students with this information.
