What We Know About the Caledonia Virtual Learning Option
Online instruction for Caledonia Public School students choosing the virtual option will be delivered through an outside company. For grades K-8, this company is Edgenuity.
Should the state revert Kent County to a reopening level of phase 3, in-person learning students would pivot to virtual instruction with Caledonia teachers at the helm.
What We Know About In-Person Learning at Caledonia Community Schools
According to the Zoom, transportation at Caledonia Community Schools will be maintained as normally as possible. With that said,
- All students and staff are required to wear a mask during routes. Disposable spare masks will be available for those lost, forgotten, or in need.
- All are required to use the provided hand sanitizer when entering the school bus.
- Buses will be cleaned on high touch points in between runs and completely cleaned after morning and afternoon routes.
- Bus windows will be kept open (weather permitting) to promote air circulation and exchange on the bus.
Lunch, Recess & PE
Lunch and recess at Caledonia will be different this year, too. K-5 students need to wear masks anytime they are in the hallways and on bus rides.
Hot lunch will still be offered.
K-2 students will eat lunch in the lunchroom, while grades 3-5 will eat lunch in their classrooms.
Recess might involve multiple classes but kids will be assigned to “zones” on the playground. Students will only be able to play with children in their class in the zone.
Physical Education classes will be held outside as often as possible.
Arrivals & Departures
School officials say that arrival and departure protocols will be tailored to specific buildings, but they may include staggering dismissal to busses, for example.
