Distance Learning Information

Dear CNBA Families,

On Monday, November 1st, teachers and students will move to distance learning. As indicated in the email from the Superintendent on Friday, “Please be prepared for sustained at-home learning until the work stoppage is over.” The main platform for the delivery of online learning is Microsoft Teams. All students have an account to access Teams and have the information necessary to move into learning through this means. I have attached a guide to using Office 365 for your reference. If you have an issue with login or password information, please reach out to your teacher or an administrator. I have attached an email address list for all teaching staff.

The schedule each day will follow the regular daily class schedules that students follow at school. Instructional times have changed to reflect at home learning and allow adequate breaks from devices and learning. Updated class/time schedules will be emailed after supper tonight once they have been finalized to ensure any possible conflicts are resolved. When you receive the schedule for your child/children, please note the time changes for online classes, especially in the high school schedule.

 Students are expected to be online on time and follow the lesson plan delivered by the teacher. Attendance during distance learning is required and attendance will be taken each day for each class. The attendance calling system is still active, so a call will be going home if a student has not joined a class. Therefore, it is important for parents to communicate absences to the teachers so they can be entered in the system before phone calls go home. We understand that technology does not always cooperate or that internet access can be an issue, so please communicate with teachers to support your child’s learning.

We have a limited number of laptops to loan out for this period of online learning. If you have not already reached out to indicate a need for a device for your child, please do so via email as soon as possible. You will be contacted on Monday to provide directions on the process of signing out a device.

Since the school will be closed with limited access by school staff, please use email to communicate with teachers & administrators. The main office phone will not be managed during distance learning.   Our competent and reliable Administrative Assistant will not be available by school phone or email during this school closure.

Since some students were not able to get to the school on Friday to gather their belongings, the school will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on Monday, November 1st to provide this opportunity. Only students may enter the building due to COVID guidelines, Masks are required as is hand sanitizing and social distancing.

Please understand that the staff at CNBA will support you the best way we can when an issue is brought to our attention. We want students to succeed and be comfortable with distance learning. Barriers can be overcome when we work together on how to remove them.

Any attachments have been posted on the school website as well… CNBA​

As always, thank you for your support, patience and flexibility as we move to distance learning.


Take Care & Stay Well!

Mrs. Barbara Long
