At an Emergency School Board Meeting due to the continued rise in cases of Covid-19, the School Board approved to delay the start of school for students until August 31, 2020. The CCPS Calendar Committee will be immediately convened to quickly work on the school calendar for 2020-2021.
Due to the change in the calendar start date, parents now have until August 18, 2020 to decide if their child will choose to attend Charlotte Virtual School.
In addition, at the same meeting, the following recommendation was approved by the School Board:
All students, staff and individuals must wear masks and or face coverings on school property to the maximum extent possible effective July 22, 2020 and until further notice. This includes schools, district office buildings and busses.
I truly believe we, as a school district, have a responsibility to do our part as a member of the Charlotte County Community in slowing the spread of Covid-19.
I just believe it makes us as a school community and community at large safer.
Later this week we will place on the District Website, health and wellness protocols that CCPS will be following that were created in conjunction with the Health Department.
Thank you again for your continued patience and stay safe.
