The Latest at CEF

A couple of our board members attended the Cascade High School academic awards assembly on Tuesday and were surprised and honored to be awarded the “Heart of the Kodiak” for Community Support.

We couldn’t provide the support if it wasn’t for our donors. Thank you!

CSD Teachers, we’re here to support you however we can!

Dear Families,

Thank you for your patience as we continue to develop the reopening schools plan for the 2020-2021 school year. Over the summer, we have been planning to open schools in person following health precautions as previously explained. However, we have recently received a verbal directive from the Chelan Douglas Health District that the level of community spread of COVID-19 in the region is too high to be able to start schools in person. As you know, the health district has the authority to determine whether or not we can open schools during a health crisis.

The model of Continuous Learning that we use this fall will not be identical to what we did in the spring. Some changes include:

Teachers will have the opportunity to work from their classrooms
Daily attendance will be taken, so there will be daily contact with every child
Grading will occur as in a normal school year
We are starting a partnership with YMCA to offer child care
Small groups of up to five students may be able to come onsite (priority goes to students who need special services)
We are planning to open our libraries, probably by appointment
Consolidating learning management systems to Seesaw (grades K-2) and Canvas (grades 3-12)
Please see additional information under the tab called Continuous Learning 2.0.

In addition, the following are our draft stages of reopening, which loosely follow the Governor’s phases of reopening. These stages may be subject to change based on guidance from health authorities.

Stages of Reopening We will be starting school in stage 1. When the health district determines it is safe, we will start school in person at first with preK-grade 5 students at 50% capacity, meaning in small pods or cohorts.

Thank you for your support and partnership during this challenging time!

Dr. Tracey Beckendorf-Edou
Superintendent
