Our current mask policy requires students and staff to wear face coverings in our schools and classrooms whenever social distancing cannot be maintained. On October 21st, CCPS received guidance from Piedmont Health District officials recommending that students and staff wear face coverings in the classroom even when social distancing can be maintained. As a result, your child will be required to wear face coverings more frequently in his or her classroom. The intent of this change is to make school an even safer place for our students and staff as we adjust to in-person instruction during this pandemic. Thank you for your understanding concerning this procedural change.

Report cards will be mailed home to parents no later than Monday, October 26th

RISE Award Nomination
Mrs. Holly Layne, has been nominated for the RISE award on behalf of Randolph-Henry High School. “The Recognizing Inspirational School Employees (RISE) Award is intended to honor and promote classified school employees who provide exemplary service to students. This new award, passed by Congress in 2019 and overseen by the U.S. Department of Education, seeks to highlight the stories of incredible school employees across the nation to inspire excellence and encourage hope” (VADOE).

If you have ever worked with Mrs. Layne, then you know she is a woman of kindness, patience and love. On any given day you might see Mrs. Layne covering a class, helping with morning attendance, providing special accommodations, assisting with SOL testing or countless other tasks. But one thing is certain, Mrs. Layne is always helping others. At our After-Prom Party, she can be seen working the money grab machine. At Statesmen Day, she will surely be operating the cotton candy machine. In the classroom, she is one of the best supporters of instruction a teacher could desire. Students love Mrs. Layne because she has a gift for bringing a calm voice to difficult situations. No task is too big or too small, and no questions are ever treated as insignificant. Mrs. Layne devotes 110% to ensuring her students have a high quality learning experience at Randolph-Henry each day. Her calm, loving, and positive attitude breathes life into our halls and compassion into our classrooms. Our staff will tell you, that there is no one quite like Holly Layne. We are so thankful to have her on our team.

When Your Child Is Sick  

Sick

Due to continuing concerns with COVID 19 spreading so rapidly in our county, Charlotte County Public School staff may ask that you keep your child home for a longer period of time than usual.  If your child has a fever, cough, cold symptoms or any symptoms that can be related to the COVID 19 virus, we may ask that you keep your child home for 10 days or more, depending on symptoms.  If at the end of 10 days your child still has symptoms, you must continue to keep your child home until he/she is symptom free for 3 days/72 hours (that’s symptom free without the help of medications).

 If you feel your child’s symptoms are related to allergies or some other alternative diagnosis, you should have your child evaluated by their medical doctor.  If the medical doctor can attribute your child’s symptoms to an alternative diagnosis or if your child has a negative Covid-19 test, your child’s time out of school could be lessened with written documentation of this diagnosis.   Even with an alternative diagnosis or negative Covid-19 test, your child must be symptom free (no fever, no cough, etc., without the help of medication) for 3 days/72 hours, BEFORE returning to school.    Please do not hesitate to call your school nurse for questions or concerns. 

Thank you for helping us slow the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases by following this protocol.   

 

A Frequently asked questions (FAQ) document is available to help answer specific questions on the CCPS website under the COVID-19 tab. The FAQ document will be updated as new information arises. The date in the top right-hand corner of this document will reflect the date of the most recent update.


Supplies

 The Registration Link on CCPS's web page is to be used by parents and guardians of returning students to complete their child’s registration. This link replaces the paperwork that was normally sent home with your child at the beginning of every school year. This is a quick and easy tool to use! Please use the snapcode that was mailed to you on each child's paperwork. 

One benefit of using this online process is that if you have more than one child in the school system, the information will carry over from one child to their sibling(s). 

If you have already completed the online registration process, you do not need to complete this again. Please contact your child's school if you have any questions or you need your child’s snapcode.

Attention Parents.  Some ISP (Internet Service Providers) are experiencing an issue with the use of the Chromebooks.  They do have a workaround that changes settings on the gateway.  This setting change could bypass the internet filtering placed on the device by Charlotte County Public Schools.  As always please monitor your child’s internet to ensure safety and security while using the internet.
