Good Morning Pirate Nation, Thank you to everyone working to ensure that our school continues to operate and that our students continue to experience learning. Assignments for the week of March 30, 2020 are now accessible online and packets are available for pickup on each campus. Both campuses will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday for assignment pick-up and drop-off. Additionally, administration will be present at the Marlin Dollar Tree location from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday for assignment pickup and drop-off. As we move forward, we are not certain as to how long we have to operate remotely. Since that is the case, parents, please anticipate that our core teachers are taking, at least, two grades per week on assignments and elective teachers will take, at least, one grade weekly. In order to ensure that we are not required to make up time during the summer sessions, it is essential that we continue to ensure that our students are learning and that we are working to hold each other accountable during this transition. Contact information and virtual office hours are posted in the documents section of the Chilton ISD website in the COVID-19 folder. If you have any questions, please contact your campus principal or the district superintendent. Teachers have arranged and posted zoom schedules to hold class sessions with students during this time of closure. The secondary teacher zoom schedules are posted in the COVID-19 folder on the district website. Please see the folder for the week of March 30. We are working to expand our outside internet capabilities for students to access from the parking lot. This will allow students and families to access WiFi by driving onto the school premises. The idea is to maintain social distancing requirements while providing access to internet. We are continuing to work to find additional solutions that will serve our students well. Thank you for your cooperation and flexibility during this time.

A Message From Mrs. Sharp: Pirate Nation: Here we go again for round 2 of work packets! Our teachers have done their part and SEVERAL students have already turned in their packets EARLY from this week! Parents and students can continue to turn in packets next week at the High School office for grades 6-12 starting at 11:30 Monday, March 23. At that time they can pick up the new learning packets and the online assignments will also be posted on the district website. Remember they only have to do one or the other, but not both online and paper packets 😀 Students who have NOT attempted either forms of work..... shame on you! You are a Pirate 🏴‍☠️ and we expect MORE of you. I will be making phone calls and home visits to get you back in the learning Mindset. Please email jsharp@chiltonisd.org if you have questions or issues with getting learning packets.

A Message From Mrs. Ross: Good afternoon Chilton Elementary Parents!!!! I certainly pray that everyone is safe and healthy during these times! Please let your child(ren) know that Ms. Ross and our teaching staff misses them so much! We can’t wait until this is over!!!! Please encourage your child(ren) to read daily! We will be sending resources home over the next couple of weeks to help with that!!!! Also, we will have a fresh round of work packets available on Monday and Tuesday from 11:00-6:00PM at the elementary building. Additional packets will be left outside the elementary entrance if those pick up times do not accommodate your schedule. You can also turn in your child’s packets from March 16-20 (if they are finished). Please make sure your child’s name and grade are on their packets. We will ensure those get to your child’s teacher to review. Also, to help facilitate our online learning options, we will be checking out chrome books to students in 3rd-5th grades. Please remember our online usage rules! You can come to the elementary building from 11:00AM-6:00PM on Monday and Tuesday to pick up your child’s chrome book. Unfortunately, we can only check out devices to the student or parent who will be responsible for the device. If these times don’t work with your schedule, please contact Ms. Ross via email at cross@chiltonisd.org. I will do my best to work with you! Parents, thank you for all you are doing to support our students! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me or your child’s teacher.

Pirate Nation, Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety and well-being of our students and families, we have made the proactive decision to extend closure through Friday, March 27, 2020. Though we have no reported cases within the community, we do understand there are cases in neighboring counties. Even though we are extending campus closure, we cannot discontinue learning and student development. Though this situation presents a challenge to the Chilton ISD, I am certain that our institution will become stronger as a result of this situation. Learning plans for the week of March 23, 2020 will be available online by Monday, March 23, 2020. Plans will also be available for pickup at 11:30 a.m. on March 23, 2020 during the lunchtime service. In the coming weeks, we will work to establish virtual office hours for each Chilton ISD educator to ensure that students and parents have access to teachers for clarification on assignments. Furthermore, we will begin posting teacher instructional videos to facilitate the completion of assignments. Meal services will continue with breakfast served from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. daily on a grab and go basis. Lunch will also be available from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. daily. Please consult the district website and social media for updated information regarding the closure. Thank you for your cooperation and flexibility during these unprecedented times. Per Aspera Ad Astra,
