A Letter from Superintendent McCombs

October 23, 2020

 

Dear Camden City School District Community,

 

Thank you for your persistence, hard work and grit as we continue our remote learning experience. As COVID positive rates creep back up around the country and New Jersey we wish everyone well, ask that you continue to social distance whenever possible, and always wear a mask when interacting with others. Below, please see some important announcements to better help support you and your child.

 

Vote: Camden County will have five drop box locations, which will be available 24 hours a day through the close of Election Day - Tuesday, November 3rd.  Use the links and info below to MAKE A PLAN and VOTE!

Seeking Your Feedback: Be on the lookout for a CCSD Remote Learning Survey next week.  This short survey will go out on Wednesday, October 28th and will be open for a week.  We want to hear how your Remote Learning experience is going and how we can improve the experience. The survey will be available on both our CCSD website and CCSD Facebook page. 

 

Reminders on how to support your child’s daily online learning 

 

 

To best support your student during the continued remote learning please review the Remote Learning Parent and Student Resource Guide. Specifically review the Student and Parent expectations for learning. Keep the following in mind to maximize student learning, wellness, and safety:

  • Your child is learning and may sometimes struggle, although you may want to help out, we ask you to let their brain grow through the challenges.

    • Please help them with any technology issues so they can focus on the learning.

  • Although we are using live video every day (GoogleMeet, Zoom) for our learning, we are not recording the lessons for distribution.  With student safety and well-being at the top of our minds, we ask that no student learning is recorded or publicly posted as this could be a violation of State and federal student privacy laws.

 

The Camden City School District Genesis Parent/Student Portal tool is a safe, secure way to view your child’s school record for the current school year. You will gain access to your child’s grades, conduct records, attendance and homework assignments.  CLICK HERE to sign up - allowing you to see your child’s progress report before the First Marking Period ends on November 16.

Sincerely,

Katrina T. McCombs, M.A.Ed., MPA
