Camden's Charter School Network (CCSN) is committed to its students, their families, and community. Given our current circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to assure our constituents that we are actively engaging students in our remote education programming. Given our investments over the years in technology, professional development, curriculum, and remote learning practices, our Virtual Academy program is enabling students the ability to work independently. At CCSN, our students are reviewing content, submitting questions, assessing their understanding, getting feedback from teachers and peers, and collaborating using online platforms and apps for the continuation of learning.
We recognize the difficulties our families, community, and world are enduring at this moment. We want our students and families to know we are here for them and our community. We are proud of how quickly we have moved into our new remote school day. Our whole staff is dedicated to helping students stay current and successful!
We remind you to stay safe and follow basic health precautions such as washing hands properly and social distancing. You can visit the New Jersey Department of Health, World Health Organization, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to learn more information about Coronavirus. This video is a good example for proper hand washing. For ways to talk to your children about COVID-19, please visit the National Association of School Psychologists website. Our school nurses are available to help with any questions you may have at the following numbers:
Our COVID-19 webpage is designed to be used as a resource and to keep the Camden's Promise community up-to-date as it relates to our school district. Instructions are to reach out to your child's teacher with any questions. You can also check out our Frequently Asked Questions page for principal and team leader names and email addresses. If your personal contact or emergency contact information changes, please let your child's teacher know as soon as possible.
At this time, our schools remain closed in compliance with Executive Order 104, signed by Governor Murphy on March 16, 2020, and readopted by Executive Order 107, signed on March 21, 2020. We remain closed to students for as long as these Orders remain in effect.
