I would first like to thank our entire Cameron School District community for your incredible support as we have navigated through this unprecedented journey over the last few weeks.
It was my hope that in a few weeks we would be messaging you about returning to school for the 2019-20 school year. Unfortunately, as many have already heard, the Governor announced yesterday that all schools will remain closed the remainder of the school year. Our school district’s staff is disappointed that we will not get to see our kids again. I especially think of those seniors who, quite honestly got a bad deal, but I know will come out of this even stronger and closer. I promise that we will find a time for seniors and our retiring staff to officially say goodbye and honor you.
This news will now bring with it a variety of questions that we will be addressing in the coming days, including whether or not major district events, such as commencement ceremonies, senior and 8th grade recognition, and the numerous banquets we host will take place at a later date or will be adapted to something different.
The district will continue providing virtual and alternate methods of instruction for our students. A plan will be developed to collect chrome books, textbooks, and work packets near the planned end of the school year, which is May 15th, 2020. Please continue to follow district emails, social media posts, and local media to learn more about the district’s plans. Additionally, we will continue to support families by offering breakfast and lunch through our Nutrition Services Department.
It makes me proud to live in a community that continues to come together for our kids. I appreciate the spirit of goodwill we have seen in the last few weeks; and I am impressed daily with how our entire community has acted to care for one another. If we get a silver lining out of this, it’s that with all of our differences, we can still come together for our kids and community.
We will continue to provide frequent updates in the days and weeks to come and thank you for your continued support of the Cameron School District.
Continue to stay safe!
