As you know, school closures ordered by NC Governor Cooper in response to COVID-19 (coronavirus) began on Monday, March 16. Closures will remain in effect until May 15. For a helpful summary of information shared during the closure – including CMS school meal distribution, Chromebook distribution and login, a Canvas tutorial for parents, and much more – please read our March 24 edition of the Spartan Express.
Teachers have begun a digital learning component this week. Please have your scholars check Google Classroom and Canvas for updates and enrichment assignments. Beginning Monday, March 30, actual online teaching and learning of new material will begin; students will be accountable to complete work, communicate with teachers, and grades will be earned for that work.
Vital functions at the school are being provided by a rotation of support staff and administrators, who are also monitoring phones remotely and responding to email. Rest assured, SMS teachers, support staff, administration and social workers continue to check in on our scholars to make sure their needs are being met – for everything from food distribution to Chromebook and Internet access. This has been a huge team effort and we can’t thank our amazing Sedgefield family enough!
This is a time of great uncertainty for many in our community and here at Sedgefield. As more details unfold from CMS, we will continue to communicate how our school will act accordingly. Please continue to check your e-mail for CMS, SMS and PTO communications. Additionally, please consider the following sources for regular updates and helpful information:
