The teachers are back so the building is buzzing again!


Yesterday I had the opportunity to meet with the entire staff (socially distanced all over the cafeteria) and share our focus for the 2020-2021 school year: ALL together NOW. As we gear up for a new kind of school year, we’re doing so with our lives impacted by COVID-19 and our consciences challenged by the revolution of racial reckoning. Much has happened since March 13 when we last had kids in the building, and much must change when the doors open up and the screens come back on September 8. I’m excited to share more about our ALL together NOW focus as we move into the new year, but for now what you really need to know is…


Our appointment-only Open Houses will be held on Wednesday, September 2.


The Hybrid Model Open House (Option 1 with A/B)

  • Teachers will be in touch by Friday to introduce themselves and explain how you can schedule a 15-minute appointment.
  • Appointments will be between 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. or 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
  • Time is provided between appointments for teachers to clean appropriate surface areas in their rooms.
  • Masks and social-distancing will be required.
  • To limit the number of people in the building, the only ones who should meet with the teacher are the student, no more than two adults, and any siblings who are currently enrolled at CAES.


The 100% Virtual Model Open House (Option 2)

  • Teachers will be in touch by Friday to introduce themselves and explain how you can access a whole-group virtual meeting.
  • Whole-group virtual meetings will be conducted at 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.


I’m excited about seeing you either here in the halls or through the computer next Wednesday and I’m looking forward to when we are ALL together NOW!


Be safe,

Mr. B.
