Please read our Letter to Families for March 26: https://www.centennial.k12.co.us/article/219884?org=centennial-r1
One final note, all pick-ups will be grab and go. We must maintain six foot social distancing and gatherings under 10 people, so please, do not eat your food on campus or get out of your vehicles while picking-up meals or materials. Thank you!
Good Evening Centennial families, Tomorrow, we begin our food and assignment pickup. All student assignments for the week can be picked-up at the same time as meals. If you are picking up food at the Churches in Chama or El Rito and you said you wanted to pick-up your assignments at the same place as your meals, your assignment packets for your family will be there. Be sure to be in Chama by 8:30 and San Francisco by 9:00 for pick-up. If you specified in the survey to pick-up assignments at the Community Center in San Acacio or the Fire Station in Garcia, the assignments for your family will be there. Be sure to be in San Acacio by 8:30 and Garcia by 9:30 for pick-up. All others will pick-up their children's assignments at Centennial from 8:30 to 9:30am. When you come to pick-up at Centennial, you will drive into the school differently than you do for a normal school day. You will make the immediate left when you pull into the parking lot, so your driver-side will be curbside for the meal pick-up. You will then drive along the sidewalk to pick-up your child's assignments from the side of the school by the outdoor amphitheater. This is the side door that leads directly to the gym. We will have people and signs to guide you when you come to the school. We realize this is a different system, but we feel it will work safely and easily once we all get the hang of it. We look forward to beginning remote learning with your children, so come get their assignment bundles right away. Thank you.
Good evening Centennial families, Today, many of you received a call to survey you about your family's needs during this transition to remote learning. We will use this information to guide decisions about how to structure the learning ahead for your children. Over the next few days, you will begin receiving regular, check-in calls from your children's teachers. These calls are the first step in communicating regularly with each of you to make sure we are providing the supports you and your children need to be successful remote learners. Teachers met today to plan for the learning ahead and create packets for you to pick-up. These materials will be ready for pick-up on Wednesday. In the weeks ahead, you will drop-off completed assignments and pick-up the materials for the next week each Wednesday. We will have a schedule for you to pick-up or drop-off these materials without leaving your car, so we can continue to practice social distancing. You will pick-up materials based on the last name of your household. If your household has more than one last name, you will pick-up according to the last name that comes first alphabetically. This schedule will be available tomorrow, and we will call you with your individual pick-up time and location. Thank you for your continued patience as we develop our remote learning system.
Grab and Go Meals begin Wednesday, March 25
Centennial will be providing meals for anyone under the age of 18 beginning Wednesday, March 25. Families will be able to pick up breakfast and lunch every Monday and Wednesday beginning March 25 until the school re-opens. One person representing the family can pick up for all their children under 18. You will receive two breakfasts and two lunches on each pick up day. Meals will be available for pick up at the following locations and times: At Centennial from 8:30am until 9:30am At the Community Center in Old San Acacio from 8:30am until 9:00am At the Church in Chama from 8:30 to 8:50 At the Church in San Francisco from 9:00 to 9:20 At the Fire Station in Garcia from 9:30 to 10:00 We will provide more updates about remote learning for our students in the coming days.
Dear Centennial Families, Students, and Community, Due to rising concerns about slowing the spread of the Coronavirus across our state, Centennial School District R-1 will shift to remote learning for all PK-12 grade students and students in our Early Learning Center following spring break until April 16, 2020. This decision is based on on-going conversations with health professionals in the Valley, San Luis and Costilla County health officials, and San Luis Valley Superintendents. All in-person classes are cancelled until the situation is re-evaluated in April or there is additional guidance from the State or federal governments. We will be working as a staff to prepare instructional materials for your children and will have them available to all Centennial families on Wednesday, March 25. We will provide parents with a material pick-up schedule to ensure we are practicing appropriate social distancing. We will also provide families with information about student meal pick-up options in the upcoming days. We hope to not have students miss a single meal that would be served during a regular school schedule. Ultimately, the health and well-being of our community, students, and families is at the core of this decision, and we will do all we can to keep you informed. Please, use this time to enjoy the wonders of your child’s learning and growth. Explore ideas, books, music, and play- together. Thank you for your continued support in protecting our most vulnerable populations.
Jade Communications is providing internet access supports for families during the next 60 days.
