Copperas Cove High Temporarily Suspends On-Campus Learning
Copperas Cove High School has temporarily suspended on-campus learning.
Copperas Cove High has been added to the list of Central Texas schools that are converting to strictly virtual learning for the time being. Beginning Wednesday, October 28th, the school's curriculum will transition to remote instruction.
Due to a rise in COVID-19 cases, Superintendent Dr. Joe Burns is requiring students to access their learning material via the district's dashboard online.
If students are without internet access, parents are being encouraged to request a device through the school.
According to KWTX, virtual learning will extend through Nov 5th.
Athletic and band practice will still continue, but students must practice social distancing, wear face coverings, and sanitize hands.
In a letter to parents, Dr. Burns wrote that although the district has had strict health protocols in place, including a mask mandate and access to hand sanitizer and cleaning stations, there's been an increase in COVID-19 cases and exposure in recent days. The district had a plan in case of this scenario, and that's what we're seeing being implemented with the switch to online-only lessons.
In order to be counted present, students will need to log in daily to Schoology and Edgenuity and access their instructional portfolios.
Copperas Cove ISD will continue to provide breakfast and lunch at no charge via a grab-and-go meal service at all district elementary schools except for Mae Stevens Early Learning Academy. Meals can be picked up between 12:45PM and 1:30 PM.
This is a challenging time for students, staff, and parents. We wish everyone the best as they continue to do everything they can to ensure Central Texas students get the quality education to which they're entitled.
