Updates for Families

TPE Updates

Towne Point Elementary 9/27/20 All-Call


Good Afternoon Towne Point Families. This is Tory Giddens, Principal of Towne Point with a few of announcements.

First, we need for you to complete a learning approach commitment response. We are actively planning to support students who choose to transition to a hybrid learning model pending approval at the October Board of Education meeting and guidance from the Division of Public Health. The hybrid model is a combination of at-home learning and two days a week of in-person learning at school. The choice made for each child will commit them to participate in that model until the end of the first semester, January 27th.

When Capital transitions to the hybrid model, families will have 2 choices:

Option 1: Send your child to school for 2 days per week with the other 3 days of virtual at-home instruction

Option 2: Continue with the virtual at-home instruction model 5 days per week

In order for us to provide a safe place for teaching and learning, each family needs to make a decision to go hybrid or stay virtual. Families who do not respond by September 30th will automatically continue with virtual at-home learning. Each child in your family must have a response in order for us to plan for their participation in the Hybrid Instructional model, so please take the time to fill out a learning model commitment response for each of your children. To complete the Commitment Response, please visit https://bit.ly/csdstayhealthy to select the commitment response for your child’s school. If you have questions regarding the plans or about the commitment response, please reach out to your child’s principal.

As a reminder from our Child Nutrition Department which has entered into the second phase of our Capital School District's feeding initiative. We are now providing Curbside meal pickup for children under 18 from 3 to 6 pm Monday through Friday at the following locations; Dover High School, Central Middle School, and all of our elementary schools. Please stop by Monday through Friday between 3 and 6pm for meal pickup.

Finally, parents and students should be reminded that there is greater instructional and attendance accountability than it was in the spring. We have clear attendance and grading policies for remote learning and they will be followed. If there are any questions about class times, zoom links, attendance requirements or grading, please speak with your child’s teacher because students will be held accountable for lack of attendance and missing assignments.

Thank you and have a good evening.
