Titans Bulletin from Mr. DeJesus
December 11, 2020
Dear Cedar Hill ES Community,
I hope that you are doing well and are staying safe during these challenging times.
I begin today's letter by thanking the parents who went into the parent portal and completed the second semester's student placement survey. We have had time to analyze the number of students returning and begin to make the changes to accommodate the 85 students. As with the first semester changes, making room to receive more students for in-person learning will require some teacher and student changes. Our goal is to keep our class sizes smaller and more manageable in complying with our Covid-19 safety measures. We also have to accommodate students who receive other services like Gifted, Interrelated Resources, and ESOL. Our teachers and staff are making arrangements to welcome back our students.
Next week for our Digital learning students, we will email the families with the new teacher assignments. For in-person students, we will send home a letter with the student.
Safety Measures at School:
I do want to thank you for reminding your children about practicing safety measures during this pandemic. Our students are doing an excellent job keeping their masks on, washing their hands, and maintaining safe distances from other students. We continue to practice limited seating in our cafeteria. Our returning students will get a chance to see the school safety video on their first day back to school on January 7, 2021.
Parents, as the number of positive covid-19 cases continues to increase within our local communities, please be mindful of sending your child to school when they are experiencing any Covid-19 symptoms, or they have been exposed to someone who has been identified with Covid-19. If your child is not feeling well, please keep them at home until they are better and can return to school.
Once again, thank you for your support. Please continue to view our website often, as this will be one of the best sources of information. You can access Cedar Hill's website from the school system's homepage: https://www.gcpsk12.org/CedarHillES. If you need assistance in Spanish, we do offer interpretation services.
