CSGA parents, most of you know already that we will start with hybrid students back in the classroom on Feb. 8th. We are so excited to get to see our students in person. We are working very diligently to make sure they have a clean and safe experience. Students whose last name end in A-L will come to school on A-Days meaning Monday and Tuesday. They will have Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday to work at home and complete assignments. Students whose last names end in M-Z will work at home on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday and will come to school on Thursday and Friday. Online ‘Cave’ students will not come to school and will continue to work their classes as they have from home. If you would like to request a change, we need you to call the school at 234-3316 by Feb. 16. Busses will be running. We are encouraging as many students as possible to be dropped off by parents, but if you need bussing please contact the bus company Valley Transportation 885-4884 or contact CSGA. First hour teachers will be calling parents later this week to fill in details and help answer questions.

Translaas la Gobernadora dio a conocer hoy, anunció que los estudiantes de NM pueden regresar a la escuela en un modelo híbrido a partir del 8 de febrero. El objetivo de las Escuelas municipales de Carlsbad siempre ha sido llevar a los estudiantes de vuelta a la escuela lo más rápido y seguro posible. Las escuelas han dedicado tiempo a desarrollar planes para proporcionar instrucción en persona de la manera más segura posible para los estudiantes y el personal. Aunque el mensaje del gobernador es muy alentador, hay muchos detalles logísticos y requisitos obligatorios de PED que el distrito y las escuelas necesitarán trabajar antes de la apertura. Los nuevos requisitos de elegibilidad se basan en una extensa preparación y protocolos para garantizar la seguridad de los estudiantes, el personal escolar, los educadores y las familias. Aunque muchos de nosotros estamos ansiosos por reanudar el aprendizaje en persona, tenemos que hacerlo de una manera que permita la mejor posibilidad de volver a un ambiente de aprendizaje en persona. Nos reunaremos y revisaremos los planes y procesos para alcanzar este objetivo. Los estudiantes, el personal, los padres y la comunidad en general no deben esperar un regreso completo el 8 de febrero. Nuestro regreso será medido y considerado. De esa manera, no solo comenzaremos el aprendizaje en persona, sino que también lo terminaremos. Los detalles del plan se compartirán durante las próximas dos semanas. Por favor revise el sitio web del distrito y el sitio web de su campus para obtener información. Gracias
As the Governor released today, she announced that NM students may return to school in a hybrid model beginning February 8th. The goal of Carlsbad Municipal Schools has always been to bring students back to school as quickly and safely as possible. The schools have spent time developing plans to provide in-person instruction as safely as possible for students and staff. While the governor's message is very encouraging, there are many logistical details and PED mandated requirements that the district and schools will need to work through prior to opening. The new eligibility requirements rely on extensive preparation and protocols to ensure the safety of students, school staff, educators, and families. While many of us are anxious to resume in-person learning, we have to do it in a way that allows for the best possibility of returning to an in-person learning environment. We will be meeting and revising plans and processes to meet this goal. Students, staff, parents, and the community at large should not expect a complete return on February 8th. Our return will be measured and thoughtful. In that way, we will not only start in-person learning, but we will also finish it. The details of the plan will be shared throughout the next two weeks. Please check the district website and your campus website for updated information.
CSGA: If your child switched from Cave online classes to hybrid classes, please make sure your child is now following the hybrid schedule and logging onto their classes at the appropriate times. The schedule is attached. Thank you.
Important Message from CSGA: There is no school on Monday, January 18th in observance of the MLK holiday. The 3rd nine weeks begins on Tuesday, January 19th. We will pass out student planners and Math textbook #2 on Tuesday, January 19th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the bus loop located at the front of the school.
CSGA - We are in the process of sending out new schedules and you should be receiving them in the mail by the end of this week. Semester long elective classes should be the only change on your students schedule. Monday Jan. 18 there is no school due to Martin Luther King Day. New semester will begin Jan. 19. We will have a book pick up in the bus lane on Tuesday Jan. 19 for planners and the 2nd math book from 2pm - 4pm.
Attention 6th Grade Parents, the beginning of the new semester starts Jan. 19. As such, there is an opportunity to switch your child’s preferred program. Currently we have two programs. One is our online “Cave” program. In this program students work more independently with opportunities to check in with teachers twice a week if they need any help. These kids would remain online for the remainder of the year even if schools were reopened. The other program is our hybrid program. In this program students meet with each teacher for an hour-long class twice a week. Classes are set up as traditional classes with teaching and interaction between students. In the eventuality that schools open, the hybrid students would come back to campus for two days a week and work the remaining three days at home online. Your child has been participating in one or the other of these models. If you are happy with the option your child is working, nothing needs to be done, but if you would like to switch your child’s program, we need you to call the school at 234-3316 by Tuesday Jan. 12th and let us know of your desire to switch.

CSGA Parents - Here is some information regarding ENGAGE which is a student service program.
For many students, going from a traditional classroom to learning from home can be a real challenge. Carlsbad Municipal Schools and New Mexico’s Public Education Department have partnered with Graduation Alliance to provide an extra layer of support called ENGAGE New Mexico. This program is for students in grades K-12 and their families who might be struggling with these changes. Students who choose to participate in the program will get an academic coach to work with them to answer questions, connect them with resources, and develop a plan to get on track and finish the school year strong. This support is completely free for New Mexico students. Your child’s school has recommended a group of students to participate in this program. A representative from Graduation Alliance/ENGAGE New Mexico may be reaching out to your student through phone calls, emails, text messages to help your child get started with this academic support program. If you would like to participate in this program and have not been contacted you can enroll by going to: ParentsNM.GraduationAlliance.com, call 505-340-3250, or email EngageNM@GraduationAlliance.com to get started.
From CSGA: Monday, 10/12/20 represents Indigenous Peoples' Day. There will be NO SCHOOL for students and teachers/staff. Enjoy your 3-day weekend!
