Dear Central Crossing Class of 2020 Family,

We look forward to celebrating the drive-thru portion of our graduation experience with you on May 23. We have spent a significant amount of time developing procedures for this event. We want this time to be special and to honor our seniors for all they have accomplished. In order to accomplish this we need your support and cooperation. Having never done this before we have made several assumptions regarding times and capacity. Your assistance will be crucial to ensuring plans materialize in a way that leaves us all feeling proud, respected, and safe.

While we know this is a big day and individuals will want to be in attendance, we ask that individuals with the following symptoms not attend the drive-thru: a fever of 100.4 or greater, a cough, shortness of breath/difficulty breathing, chills, and/or a sore throat and new loss of taste or smell. Our primary concern is the health and safety of everyone involved in this activity. Out of respect for all involved we ask for your cooperation with this request.

The following guidelines will be strictly enforced during this period of time:

  1. Graduates will be assigned a window of time to participate in the drive-thru portion of the ceremony. The times for our building are:

1:00 - 2:00 Li - M

2:00 - 3:00 N - Ri

3:00 - 4:00 Ro - T

4:00 - 5:00 U - Z

  1. Only four (4) guests may accompany the graduate.
  2. Only one car per graduate.
  3. Graduates are not to arrive early and will be required to leave immediately after receiving their diploma cover.
  4. While in line, all individuals will be required to stay in their vehicle.
  5. Face coverings will be expected by all individuals with the exception of the graduate. Graduates are encouraged to wear a face covering until picture time.
  6. Drivers should not exit the car for any reason.
  7. Rental vehicles typically used to enhance special occasions, such as limousines, are not permitted.
  8. Guests and graduates are to be in an enclosed vehicle (i.e., individuals may not be in the bed or open area of a truck).
  9. Only one person may exit the car to take a photo or video as the graduate receives their diploma cover.
  10. Access to the building will be restricted. Graduates and guests should not anticipate having access to the building or public restrooms.
  11. Foam hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes will be available for each graduate to use prior to receiving their diploma cover.
  12. Locations will be handicapped accessible.

The entrance to drive-thru graduation will be the same entrance used for cap and gown pick up, the entrance on Big Run South by the pond.

Additionally, please click here to view information regarding the Class of 2020 Exit Survey and directions on requesting final transcripts to be sent to colleges.

We commend our students on this accomplishment and are so proud of each and every graduate. We can’t wait to see you and look forward to all the amazing things you will accomplish in the future.

Sincerely,

Dr. Jill Burke, Principal

Dear CCHS Class of 2020 Family,

We would like to take this opportunity to expand upon the graduation information we have previously provided to you. During the past week we engaged student leaders from each of our high schools to listen, brainstorm, and represent their peers in an effort to honor our graduating class in a manner that celebrates them as individuals and as a collective. They were given the difficult task of balancing conflicting information, rumors, aspirations, and the safety of our school community. They are shining examples of what makes our youth so special and why we are so proud of them.

Our workgroup came to the conclusion that graduation is an individual and collective experience. Therefore, it is important for our ceremonies to embody both components. We will be hosting a drive-thru ceremony complemented by a virtual ceremony for each high school. The drive-thru ceremony will allow students to hear their name read, walk across a raised platform, receive their diploma covers, and, if so desired, have their picture taken. Each graduate is allowed one car with up to four (4) guests in it. The drive-thru ceremony will take place on May 23 at each of our high schools.

The virtual graduation ceremony will be uploaded to each building’s YouTube channel for viewing on May 30 during the scheduled graduation time. This is one of our planned tributes to the Class of 2020 to provide a collective experience without creating a potential health risk. This will be more than a slideshow. It will mirror our traditional graduation format. Music, speakers, and memories will be shared so that the students have a special day that speaks to them and the Class of 2020.

This is obviously not what any of us envisioned for a graduation to recognize and honor the Class of 2020. However, in this time of change and uncertainty, we are doing our best to recognize and respect the Class of 2020 in a responsible manner that does not jeopardize the health and safety of others. Even if you disagree on a personal level, we hope you can appreciate the intent of our collective efforts.

Sincerely,

Dr. Jill Burke Mrs. Christine Thompson

Mr. Brandon Bolanos-Cruz Miss. Madison Studt Mr. Trent Rivers

CCHS Students & Families:

It is hard to believe that today is May 1. While we wait for the sun to appear on a more regular basis, we wanted to continue to provide encouragement to all of our students and appreciation to all of our families.

Dear CCHS Class of 2020 Family,

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a lot of anxiety, concern, and sadness around the world. It’s safe to say that the pandemic’s impact on the Class of 2020 has become one of the largest topics discussed in recent weeks.

Our seniors have worked hard to get to this point over the past 13 years of their educational career, culminating with all of the activities associated with one’s senior year of high school. We know you are experiencing a range of emotions – anger, disappointment, sadness, fear, and hope. We feel those emotions with and for you. It is important to all of us that we continue to provide the opportunity for our seniors and their families to celebrate the Class of 2020 while staying healthy and safe.

On April 29, we received new guidance from the Ohio Department of Education, in conjunction with the Ohio Department of Health, regarding graduation ceremonies. While still strongly recommending a virtual ceremony, the guidance provides the opportunity for districts to explore additional options. This document is different from the Ohio Department of Education’s April 23 graduation ceremony guidance. The communication you received from building principals last Friday was based on the April 23 guidance from the Ohio Department of Education.

While we need to continue planning our virtual graduations, we will also be forming a district-wide workgroup of senior student leaders from each of our high schools. This workgroup will be using the April 29 guidance referenced above and guidance from the Franklin County Public Health Department to evaluate the options available to us. This group will be charged with making a recommendation that allows us to honor and celebrate our students to the best of our ability without compromising the health, safety, and welfare of our community.

It is our hope that, as a result of their work, we will be able to provide a more detailed and robust graduation experience that allows us to celebrate students in a way that is responsible, practical, and memorable while also meeting the intent of the guidelines provided to us on April 29. This is obviously not what any of us envisioned graduation for the Class of 2020. However, in this time of uncertainty, we are confident these student leaders will represent their peers well and do their best to help us recognize the Class of 2020. We hope you will support them and celebrate their efforts.

Stay safe. Stay healthy.

Sincerely,

Dr. Jill Burke

CCHS Senior Families,

Students and parents have reached out to us to find out when and how students will be able to pick up their cap and gown orders from Jostens. We have worked with Jostens to schedule cap and gown pick-up in a drive-through format this year. Jostens will be at Central Crossing High School on May 11th from 1:30 to 4 pm. We will provide detailed information closer to the date regarding the traffic flow for the pick-up, the assigned time slots by last name to ease the flow around the building, and instructions on how to pick up your items. Thank you for your patience as we work with Jostens to create a safe, efficient cap and gown pick-up process for all seniors.


Thank you,

Dr. Jill Burke

Principal


9th, 10th, and 11th Grade Message - April 24,2020

Dear Classes of 2021, 2022, and 2023:

By now I’m sure you all know that the 2019-2020 school year will be completed through the continuation of remote learning. While we anticipated this guidance from Governor DeWine, it didn’t make it any easier to hear.

We know you are mourning the loss of important end of school year events - traditional proms, spring musicals, awards assemblies, and other high school events. The disappointment and sadness are emotions we all feel and recognize. Our teachers and staff members are experiencing similar emotions, but during this crisis, we must put health and safety first.

Advanced Placement Courses: Students can make the choice as to whether or not they wish to take AP exams this school year. While we encourage students to take the test, we understand that this may be extremely stressful given the circumstances. Students who choose not to take the exam will receive a credit to their Infinite Campus account. These fees will stay in your account and can be applied to subsequent years’ school fees. Any students or parents wishing to request a refund of their surplus amount may do so by contacting our school account clerk at pam.baker@swcsd.us.

Prom: We are sorry to inform you that our school’s prom, scheduled for May 1, 2020, has been canceled and will not be rescheduled. I know this is an event you have been looking forward to all year. You are probably angry, upset, or disappointed, and all of those feelings are justified. Yet, the simple act of canceling prom may make more of an impact on our lives and community than any prom ever has made. It will keep our family and friends safe and well.

All Academic & Top 25 Awards: We will be creating a virtual awards program to recognize students who have been identified as earning these academic distinctions. More information will be coming out on what this will look like.

We encourage all of you to stay connected, even if it’s virtually, and focus on what you can control. Stay in touch with your teachers and finish the school year Comet Strong. Take advantage of the many ways to stay socially connected, while physically distanced, with your friends and family through all types of activities like group chats, phone calls, video messaging, virtual dinners, and even watching TV together. It’s important to lean on others and talk through our feelings.

Consider strategies such as making lists and schedules for each day to help stay organized and focused. Should you find yourself feeling overwhelmed with school work, take a break. When you return, prioritize the most important tasks and do those first. Additionally, click here to read an article from Child Mind Institute on how mindfulness can help during COVID-19.

Thank you to our WCCH News Team & CCHS Staff for creating our most recent CCHS News Show containing a special message to the Class of 2020! Click here to view the show.

We’re here for you. Stay safe and stay healthy.

Graduating Seniors Message - April 24,2020


Dear Class of 2020,

By now I’m sure you all know that the 2019-2020 school year will be completed through the continuation of remote learning. While we anticipated this guidance from Governor DeWine, it didn’t make it any easier to hear.

We know you are mourning the loss of important milestones associated with being a senior in high school - traditional proms, spring musicals, awards assemblies, and other ‘rite of passage’ events. The disappointment and sadness are emotions we all feel and recognize. Our teachers and staff members are experiencing similar emotions, but during this crisis, we must put health and safety first.

Advanced Placement Courses: Students can make the choice as to whether or not they wish to take AP exams this school year. While we encourage students to take the test, we understand that this may be extremely stressful given the circumstances. Students who choose not to take the exam will receive a credit to their Infinite Campus account. These fees will stay in your account and can be applied to subsequent years’ school fees.

You are probably angry, upset, or disappointed, and all of those feelings are justified. Yet, the simple act of canceling prom may make more of an impact on our lives and community than any prom ever has made. It will keep our family and friends safe and well.

Graduation: We will be collecting our traditional slideshow information from each graduating senior to create our Central Crossing High School graduation slide presentation. At this time, we are planning a virtual graduation ceremony to be broadcast on May 30. If circumstances change to allow group face-to-face activities, we may have the opportunity to plan an additional event at a later date.

Senior Awards: We will be creating a virtual senior awards program to recognize those seniors who have been selected to receive additional awards and scholarships from outside organizations, the PTAs, and various departments within our school. More information will be coming out on what this will look like.

We encourage all of you to stay connected, even if it’s virtually, and focus on what you can control. Stay in touch with your teachers and finish the school year Comet Strong. Take advantage of the many ways to stay socially connected, while physically distanced, with your friends and family through all types of activities like group chats, phone calls, video messaging, virtual dinners, and even watching TV together.

CCHS Students:

As we enter our second week of distance learning, we wanted to touch base with all of you and provide a few words of encouragement. Please continue to check email, Google Classroom, and any other online system that your teachers are using on a daily basis. Additionally, consider the following tips for successful online learning:

  • Set daily goals and follow a schedule.
  • Keep yourself accountable.
  • Do one thing at a time.
  • Take breaks.
  • Create a dedicated study space.

CCHS is holding a virtual spirit week this week; daily themes are listed below:

Monday - Hat Day

Tuesday - College Gear Day

Wednesday - Comet Gear Day

Thursday - Red, White, and Blue Day

Friday - Hawaiian Shirt Day

At this time we realize there are more questions than answers. What we do know is that our teachers and students continue to work harder than ever. Specifically for Seniors, there are many questions regarding the recently passed legislation regarding graduation requirements for the class of 2020. While at this time we have few answers we do know you should continue to work hard in all of your classes with a goal of passing every class. You still need 21 credits to graduate.

Please remember your teachers, counselors, and principals are all here to support you. Email will continue to be the best method of communicating any questions or concerns.

Go Comets!

CCHS Administration


March 17, 2020

Dear Central Crossing Families,

There is a phrase, ‘May you live in interesting times.’ We think it is fair to say that we are living in interesting times right now. The purpose of this letter is two-fold: 1) sharing resources with parents on talking with their children about the Coronavirus; and 2) communicating the processes we will be using to continue education.

In times of crisis, parents may have difficulty knowing what to say when talking to their children. This is normal. As things seem to change on a day-to-day basis, concern can make both children and adults anxious.

1) We would like to offer some things to think about in case your child appears to be struggling with the current situation:

● Children look to adults for how to respond in times of crisis and will mirror the reactions of adults. The words we use and the actions we take will frame how children view this new circumstance. Remaining calm ourselves helps reassure our children to do the same.

● Routines are our friend. Routines bring familiarity and comfort to our lives. When we know what to expect and feel some level of control, we are better able to adapt to changing circumstances. Regular bed, meal, study, art, and play times are some of the ways to embed routines into our daily lives. Unpredictability and loss of control can leave us feeling stressed and anxious.

● Regardless of the logic, it is important to listen to children’s feelings and answer their questions as best we can. Fear is an extremely contagious and powerful emotion. For some children fear can lead to irrational conclusions that cloud their every thought and action. Being able to verbalize these fears allows caregivers the opportunity to add a touch of realism, practicality, and being proactive. It also helps us reframe their concerns, so these fears can be significantly reduced.

● Finally, communicate hope. While children are very good at sensing insincerity, they are also influenced by aspirational thoughts and behaviors. Hope for better days and better outcomes can be more powerful than fear. Communicating that hard work, good decisions, and ingenuity will lead to a better tomorrow is an empowering thought.

  • For tips and expert guidance, please consider exploring the following links:

○ Talking to Children About COVID-19 ( from the National Association of School Psychologists) https://www.nasponline.org/resources-and-publications/resources-and-podcasts/school-climate-saf ety-and-crisis/health-crisis-resources/talking-to-children-about-covid-19-(coronavirus)-a-parent-res ource

○ The National Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children (TLC Institute – part of STARR Global) https://starr.org/covid-19-school-cancellation-and-trauma/

2) We will be educating students remotely for a period of time. Below are answers to some of the questions we have received about this process:

  • What about Devices and Internet access?

○ Almost any device that supports Internet browsing will work. Your child does not need to have a ‘Chromebook’ to access the lessons from their teachers. Any computer, tablet, phone or other internet capable device will work for this purpose.

○ Last Friday, we made our first attempt to ensure that every home has access to a personal computing device. Many families already had their own device(s) and some students borrowed a device from school. If your student did not borrow a device or an additional device is needed because your household has multiple students attending the South-Western City School District and one is not sufficient, please contact your child’s school attendance line leaving your child’s name, grade, and a call back phone number. We will make arrangements with you to secure a device.

○ We are in the process of securing an extremely limited number of wireless access points. These requests will be based on financial need beginning with the senior class and working downward through grade levels. Follow the procedure above if you have this need and we will try to assist you to the best of our ability. For requests that can’t be met, please consider exploring places near your residence that offer this service for free or consider accessing district WiFi from common areas outside of our school buildings. Please remember that social distancing (6 feet) is a best practice and congregating on school property is currently prohibited. Several Internet-providers are also offering free services for the next few weeks to those in need.

○ One final note: the district will not be filtering devices or access points while students are working remotely. While the district acceptable use policy remains in full effect, we are counting on caregivers to monitor the use, search activity, and social interactions in which students engage through these devices.

○ If you encounter any technical problems with your child’s Chromebook, please contact our Helpdesk for Chromebook assistance by calling (614) 801-3014 or emailing chromebookhelp@swcsd.us

  • How will learning activities and submitting assignments work?

○ Email will be the primary method of communication during this time period. Every student has been issued a district email/account address.

○ Assignment and learning activities will be distributed through email or another learning platform that have already been used in the classroom (such as Google classroom and iReady). These activities should take your child a regular class period to complete (25-50 minutes). Please remember some students work more quickly than others so times may vary. Videos, text, links to Websites, and downloadable PDFs will be among the most common materials with which students interact. While some activities will be completed in a single sitting, others could take several days. Students should expect to submit three items per subject per week that will receive teacher feedback. This will likely take the form of a graded activity. This could happen automatically as a normal course of the lesson, they may require uploading a pdf, it could be in the form of an email to the teacher, OR printed/created to submit in a physical form.

  • What is the best way to communicate with staff?

○ All staff have email addresses and phone extensions. Staff will communicate these directly to students. The format of email addresses in our district is firstname.lastname@swcsd.us. Please be patient as our staff members work through their email and phone messages. Between student and parent communication, creating lessons in a new way, providing students feedback, and taking care of their own families, they will be stretched very thin at times. Many staff will be working remotely, therefore we encourage the use of email to communicate with staff members.

● How will the end of the grading period be handled?

○ March 20 marks the end of the grading period. Recognizing the unexpected way this grading period has ended, students are encouraged to communicate with teachers sooner rather than later so that grades can be calculated for the quarter.

○ Teachers have been asked to finalize third quarter grades no later than March 30, 2020.

○ All assignments given beginning March 24 will be considered part of the final grading period.

● How will the district be distributing food to those in need?

Our building will be used to distribute ‘Grab-n-Go’ breakfast and lunch meals for students who need food assistance. Meals will be available from 10:00 a.m. till noon, Monday through Friday, beginning Monday, March 23. A list of locations will also be available on our district Website at www.swcsd.us.

○ For families with more immediate food needs, please visit our Website for additional resources.

○ Assignments and other materials can also be returned during food pick up times. Please include the building and teacher name on any assignments/materials.

● How do I get the medication(s) my child left at school?

○ If your child has medication in the clinic that you need to have returned, please contact the school clinic at (614) 801-6500.

We are grateful for our families who partner with us to make this community stronger for our children. Thank you for your patience over the past few days as we worked through our plans to close school, finalized our remote learning options, and provide families with the tools to help support their children’s learning at home.

Sincerely, Dr. Jill V. Burke Principal
