CLOVIS (KSMX)- Now two weeks into Continuous Learning, Clovis Municipal Schools announced a couple of updates to the continuous learning plans.
In the press release, the District has determined that by participating in Continuous Learning, kindergarten through eighth-grade students can improve their grades for the remainder of the year; however, grades will not decline lower than they were at the time school closures were ordered by the State. In the case of secondary students who are required to earn credits, and many of whom also take college classes, the staff is working closely to help them complete the year without credit loss or reduced grades.
Additionally, the State has given seniors an extended deadline of June 19, to complete graduation requirements.
The administration announced that the district will be working on a way to engage the whole community through programs and initiatives aimed at enriching experiences as we observe stay at home health orders.
“It has been said before and will be said again, as we navigate the circumstances presented by COVID-19, Clovis Municipal Schools is focused on people – our staff, our students, and our community – as our first priority.”
Other updates in the district:
- Free Meals for School-Aged Children: The number of Grab & Go meal sites are being consolidated. Beginning Monday, April 27, meals will no longer be available at Gattis Middle School. Individuals who picked up meals at Gattis are now encouraged to do so at Barry Elementary.
- Internet for Students: While many of our students have been provided the Internet at home through a partnership with Plateau Telecommunications, the District is exploring additional ways to ensure all students have reliable access to participate in Continuous Learning. New initiatives for Internet access will be announced soon.
- Online High School Yearbook Sales: Last week we announced the online sale of the 2019 – 2020 Plainsmen. Students and families can now order and purchase a copy of the yearbook online. Due to State health orders, yearbook distribution details will be arranged and announced at a later date.
- Friday Night Lights: The District announced last week that for the remainder of the school year the lights at Leon Williams Stadium will be turned on from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. every Friday as a beacon of community solidarity. Help us celebrate our community and commitment to slowing the spread of COVID-19 by “Lighting Up Wildcat Nation” from home!
- Connecting Clovis Through Music: The Clovis community has a rich history of and a close connection to music. To celebrate our musical roots and strengthen connections, our award-winning Music Department is working with school music teachers on an interactive program to share music with our families and community.
