We are having technical difficulties with syncing our Chicod Calendar. This issue is being addressed and will hopefully be fully connected soon. We appreciate your patience as we work through this.
This is Hornet News for the week of 9/21/20
We look forward to having our Face to Face Group A students on campus this week. This is the Remote Learning week for Group B students.Progress Reports will go home on Wednesday for Week A Students and Full Time Virtual Students. Next Wednesday, Week B students will receive their Progress Reports.Friday will be Purple/Gold Spirit Day for students and staff. Students may wear jerseys, t-shirts, hats, and other appropriate purple and gold to celebrate our Hornet Spirit and Pirate pride!Due to the high numbers of face to face students and large participation in live zoom sessions teachers will no longer be recording live zoom sessions for students. This means missed zoom sessions will not be recorded or posted to Canvas or Seesaw. This is in order to protect the privacy of everyone involved.Privacy laws indicate this is the best practice. Students are encouraged to attend available live zoom sessions during virtual learning when possible. For those who cannot attend, other asynchronous (not live) learning videos will be available in Canvas or Seesaw.As most of you know, on Thursday (9/17), the governor has made Plan A available for K-5 students after October 5th. There have been no decisions made for PCS, as this announcement was first made to school systems and to the public on Thursday (9/17).Please join our PTA! This is one way everyone can support our school by joining the PTA. You may join our PTA page on our website or the Chicod PTA Facebook page!This year's Hornet Hustle is now a virtual event.

Chicod Learning Option Change Form
The PCS BOE has also given each school the flexibility to allow parents to change Learning Options. This flexibility will look different at each individual school. To allow a change to a student’s Learning Option, the school first has to determine if the school can accommodate adding a student while still following Covid-19 Guidelines. Chicod School is currently operating at approximately 74% Face to Face Learners, and 26% Virtual Learners.
To request a change in your child’s Learning Option, please click on the link below and complete the Chicod Learning Option Change Form. Changes will be reviewed based on the date of request and seat availability. In cases where we cannot accommodate a request, the request will be placed on a waiting list.

Curbside Meal Order Survey
Below is a google Survey for Curbside Meal Orders. Parents will need to place their child/our student meal order by 3pm Tuesday of each week. The survey will assist the managers in the number to prepare and be more efficient and to help our parents plan their Wednesday of where to get their students meals.
***** Parents will have to do a curbside meal order survey for each child each week they want meals for curbside pickup. These meals are only offered to PCS Enrolled Students. Starting Tuesday, September 1, 2020 all full price/paid status students will have to pay for any meals they receive from School Nutrition.There is one survey for student last names A through L and another for students with last names M-Z:A-L: https://docs.google.com/
