Parent Post – 3/23/2020

Dear Cory Families, 

I would like to again express how grateful I am for the support and kindness of our wonderful community. I hope you are all taking care of yourselves and your families, while also checking on your neighbors and friends.

As you know, DPS students, including all Cory students will begin online/remote learning on April 7. Online learning will continue through April 17. At this time, we are planning on school opening again on April 20, however, things are continuing to change, so please continue to monitor your email. 

Our first step is to ensure that every student in grades 1-5 has access to their own computer while at home during this time. Please help us by doing the following:

  • If your child needs to borrow a Chromebook from Cory in order to participate in remote learning from home, please make sure their teacher knows this as soon as possible.
  • If your child needs to borrow a Chromebook, please plan to come to Cory on Wednesday, March 25  and Thursday, March  26 between 8:15 AM and 12:15 PM to pick up the device. 
  • In order to support social distancing and the health of all involved, the plan for picking up computers will be as follows: 
    • Parents will drive up in the main parking lot, please follow signage to the first station to check-out and receive a technology waiver
    • Parents/family members will remain in their car. 
    • A Cory staff member will ask you for the student name and their teacher’s name. 
    • You will drive to the next station to pick-up the device. The staff member will bring the computer and charger to your car window.

Cory is not 1 to 1 so we do not have enough technology for all students.  Please only grab a device if you need one. If we run out of technology, we will work with DPS to secure those devices. On Friday, I will communicate Cory’s remote learning plan and what April 7th will entail.

Be safe and stay healthy!
