Good evening ARES families and friends, we miss all of you.  I hope everyone is staying safe and following the recommendations so we can defeat this virus and get back to school.  We are entering phase 2 of Cumberland @home.  There is a lot of information on the CCS website pertaining to how instruction will be delivered over the next several weeks.  I encourage you to monitor the website for updated information.  We will also post helpful hints on the ARES website on how to log into different online learning platforms.  I want to share a few important things that are happening this week as we move into phase 2 of Cumberland @ home.  We will be distributing learning packets for Pre-K – 2nd grade students this Tuesday Mar. 31st from 1:00 to 3:00 and on Wednesday, Apr. 1st from 3:00 to 6:00.  We will also sign out computers to  3rd through 5th graders who have indicated through the CCS survey or your teacher that you need to borrow a computer.  Those students who have indicated they need a computer will receive a separate call with more information about how to sign out a computer.  We have limited computers that we can sign out so we ask that only those students who need a computer in order to complete their online learning to sign out a computer from the school.  If you know of anyone who is not receiving these calls, please share this information with them.  If the person has opted out of receiving calls, they can opt back in by calling 1-855-502-7867 and press Option 2.  They need to call using the phone number they would like to be called on.  I am sorry for this long message but there is a lot of information to share with you as we continue to find ways to improve the Cumberland @Home learning experience for our students.  Our prayers are with you, your family, our community and nation.  We miss and love all of you.
