Remote Learning: What to Know



Remote learning has begun!

Here is what you need to know...


All CEC schools will be closed through the end of the school year.


Starting March 30th, students will participate in remote learning via Microsoft Teams on smart phones, computers or tablets. Assignments will be posted by 9am. Teachers will hold office hours from 1pm-4pm daily and will be available by chat or video.




Attendance expectations are as they have always been. Students are expected to show up to class by logging in to their Microsoft account and participating in their classes. This might mean submitting an assignment, chiming in to a class discussion on Microsoft Teams, or connecting one-on-one with a teacher. At the end of the day, we require at least one form of timestamped engagement visible to each of the student's teachers each day. Students should check with their teachers to determine their individual attendance expectations.
Students are not required to attend class at the normally scheduled time. Some instructors are hosting live classes to provide the opportunity to interact in real time if possible, but they will provide an alternative way to access the class for students who cannot make this time. We believe it’s important for our staff and students to interact, so meeting during office hours from 1:00-4:00pm as a video chat is also available and encouraged. As instructors have settled in, these norms will become clearer.
Every class day! Attendance will still be taken every class day in each class. How attendance is taken may vary from class to class, but students are expected to log in to participate in each class every day of the week. For specifics, students should talk to their teachers regarding expectations for each class.
Students that have scheduled ICAP meetings for the fall 2020 semester will meet with their adivsor virtually - either through Microsoft Teams or by phone. Advisors are also available by email during this time as well. Please visit CECCS's Advising page or connect with your academic advisor for specific details. 
We understand that not all families may have access to the technology their student needs to participate in remote learning, and we are working hard to help each student attain the necessary equipment to continue classes from a remote setting.

It means three things in particular.
  1. This is your last opportunity to come to the school to gather any personal belongings that you do not currently have. This includes picking up music stands for students in the music classes.
  2. For the safety and protection of all our staff, please do not come to the school building unless you are picking up materials and have already arranged this with a staff person or teacher.
  3. After 5:00pm on March 26th through the end of the school year, staff WILL NOT be on campus, except for our Wolf Bistro team, who are considered “essential staff”
No, they will not. Given how things have progressed with COVID-19, CEC has made a network decision to close all campuses through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.
Enrollment for the 2020-21 school year is still in process. Prospective students and families can attend our Informational Meetings through our online Infocast.

All students in the city up to the age of 18 are eligible for one free lunch per day. Locations for the grab and go meals can be found here. *You do not need to be a resident of the local district to get a lunch from one of these locations.
