DENTON — Phase I of Continuity of Learning began this week, Monday, March 30, with loaner devices and packet distribution to Caroline County Public School students needing either, and teaching staff receiving the training necessary for students to learn remotely.
Superintendent of School Patty Saelens said staff continues to work on Phase II of the Continuity of Learning plan that will begins the week of April 6. This work includes finalizing learning resources, making sure technology needs are met, preparing communication, and creating a specific section of the website with everything students and families need to know.
Staff will be loaning devices for families who do not have a device in their home.
Parents and guardians should anticipate more information mid-week, said Saelens, so please continue to check their email, the CCPS website, and social media.
“This has been a daunting challenge, and one that every school system in Maryland, and most other states, are struggling with right now,” she said. “I’ve said this several times and will continue to repeat it – the patience and support from staff, families and community has been overwhelming and very much appreciated. I have no doubt we will do what Caroline always does – get through this together.”
Additionally, CCPS has installed new devices that deliver a strong Wifi signal well into the front and/or side parking lots of all schools. Families and students may visit any school parking lot between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Devices will be turned on and off remotely daily.
