 *** Update March 24, 2020 ***

VIDEO MESSAGE FROM DR. QUINN

Greetings Clover School District this is Superintendent Dr. Sheila Quinn,

I want to take this opportunity to commend the work of our students and parents. Reports coming from principals and teachers are that our students have done a terrific job with their eLearning thus far. We are dealing with a unique situation, and our students are rising to the occasion.

Likewise, our teaching staff has stepped up as well. Our teachers have shown their commitment to "Each Child, Each Day" as they have held office hours, hosted video conferences, and adapted their lessons to meet the need of our students.  Our incredible nutrition staff, bus drivers and teacher assistants have volunteered their time to deliver over 1500 meals last Friday alone.

Now to share some updated information with you. As you may have heard, Governor McMaster just announced the extended closure of all schools in South Carolina through April 30, 2020.  

This message will address the impact that this announcement has on the Clover School District. I will discuss the following areas:

  • New time recommendations for eLearning assignments
  • State Testing
  • Revised grading protocols for the 4th quarter
  • Process for electronic submission of completed paper packets
  • Delivery of new instructional packets for PK and Kindergarten and students in grades 1-12 who have accommodations for paper/pencil materials
  • Spring Break.
  1. Time for eLearning Assignments

Since we will be extending eLearning through April 30, we want to adjust our recommended time spent on assignments by grade level. 

Ideally, our teachers would develop assignments that last over a couple of days and require no more than

  • 60 minutes per day for PreK – 2nd Grade
  • 90 minutes per day for 3rd – 5th Grade
  • 130 minutes per day for 6th – 8th Grade
  • 160 minutes per day for 9th – 12th Grade
  1. State Testing

The U.S. Department of Education has suspended all State testing including SC READY, SCPASS, End-of-Course Exams for English 1, Algebra 1, Biology, and U.S. History, PreK PALS, SC-Alternate Assessments, and WIDA for English Learners.

The SC Department of Education is still working with ACT, SAT, WIN vendors to continue opportunities for those college entrance exams and a revised model for Advanced Placement exams that could be implemented for students from home in a condensed format.  Please stay tuned to more information that will be released on these national high school exams.

  1. 4thQuarter Grading

One of the biggest questions we know you have is about how students will receive grades for the work they are doing. 

Quarter 3 is complete and all grades are stored.  Report cards will be mailed to families on March 31.

For Quarter 4 only, we are going to suggest a major change in how we document grades.  Pay close attention because this differs by grade level. 

Pre-K – 8th grade:

We will be using a new grading scale similar to the one we already use in our lower grades.  Teachers will be giving feedback to students on the work they submit with the following descriptors:

  • B= Beginning – I am beginning to understand but still need a lot of support
  • D= Developing – I am making progress, but still need support
  • M= Meeting – I am on grade level without support
  • E= Excels – I am meeting grade level standards with excellence

 *Final year end grades will be calculated using only Quarters 1 – 3 numeric grades and a progress report for Quarter 4 will report on the new scale I just described.

High School and courses taught for High School credit in Middle School:

The state requires that courses for high school credit remain on the 100 point grading scale.  However, we will modify the following:

  • Minor grades should be given based on participation in formative assessment type assignments (discussion boards, text response, practice work, etc.). Multiple attempts must be given on all assignments.
  • Major grades should be given based on content mastery on summative assessments including projects. Multiple attempts must be given on all major grades.
  • Scores should reflect several opportunities for content mastery over time. When multiple attempts for an assignment are given, students should keep the highest grade.
  • Second semester grades will not calculate a final exam into the final grade except for dual enrollment college courses.
  1. Submitting work from March 18 instructional packets

Due to the communicable nature of Coronavirus, we are carefully considering the safest way to collect the instructional work students have done on the paper/pencil so far.  For the packets that were distributed on March 18, we ask that parents/students take a picture of the work with a cell phone or iPad and email it to your child’s teacher or share it through Canvas, Dojo, or SeeSaw.  Use the app your school has been using all year and you are most comfortable with. Parents who do not have WiFi access at home may come to the school parking lot to upload photos of student work to any of these tools.  If you need assistance, be sure to come by the school during its posted office hours to receive help in submitting the assignments electronically.  

  1. Getting New Instructional Packets for March 30 – April 30

Grades 1 – 12 will get eLearning packets electronically only.  Your teacher will upload the work in Canvas, Dojo, SeeSaw or whatever learning management system your school has been using all year.

In PreK and Kindergarten teachers are working virtually to develop the next set of paper packets. You can get the new packets in several ways.

  • Your child’s teacher could send you digital copies to print at home.
  • The school can provided already printed packets for PreK and K students and specific packets for students needing special accommodations. These new packets may be picked up at elementary schools in the car-rider line on March 31, 2020 between 9:00-11:00a.m. and 3:00-6:00 p.m.  
  • Printed packets can be sent to published bus stops on April 1, 2020 if you notify your teacher that you prefer this method by March 31.   
  1. Spring Break

Students, parents, teachers, and administrators have put in a lot of hours leading up to and since the announcement of the closure of all schools. Therefore, Clover School District will still observe Spring Break from April 6 – 13 as scheduled. There will be no eLearning during Spring Break.  However, we will continue to provide meals through our bus delivery system during Spring Break.

 *** Update March 17, 2020 ***

Greetings Clover School District,

Over the past 48 hours, Clover School District has worked quickly and efficiently on an extended eLearning plan to assist our families during this school closure.  You may have already gotten a welcoming email from your child’s teachers to kick off our extended eLearning with students.

Today, we will provide you with updated details in five important areas.

1. Communications for Extended eLearning

To help you find information quickly on our extended learning plans, go to our school district website at www.clover.k12.sc.us. From the home page, click on the eLearning button in the Popular Links section under the main header.

A call center has been established and will be open from 9:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. beginning Wednesday, March 18. When you call 803-810-8003, you will have several options: eLearning Updates, Technical Support, Instructional Support, and Food Assistance. Follow the menu prompts based on your needs.

2. District and School Operation Hours

The district office will be open virtually to the public Monday – Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. by phone at 803-810-8000.  You may also contact us by email at any time using the address csd.communication@clover.k12.sc.us.  We will also be monitoring our social media outlets daily.  To protect the public and our staff, we are limiting face to face meetings unless absolutely necessary.

Each school will be open two days per week for a minimum of three hours to answer the phone and handle critical business.  We ask that you use email and phone for primary communication with school personnel.  Someone will be checking voicemail daily and you should expect a return phone call during school operating hours.  Your principal will communicate school hours on the school website or through a Blackboard connect phone call or email.

3. eLearning Device and Instructional Packets Dissemination

Each school has developed detailed plans for the distribution of devices and learning packets on Wednesday, March 18.  Students in PK and Kindergarten will receive only paper-pencil learning packets.  Students in grades 1 -12 who have previously been day users will receive devices and chargers so that they can participate in eLearning from home.  School car-lines will operate from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. and again from 3:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. to distribute devices and packets and to allow families without home Wi-Fi to download content onto the device. Please refer to the detailed communication from your school about Wednesday’s deployment.  Beginning Thursday, buses will also have copies of the PK – Grade 5 learning packets and will distribute those as needed at designated drop off sites.

4. Nutrition Services

A breakfast and lunch combination meal are being served daily in a drive-through format out of the Clover High School cafeteria between the hours of 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.  A parent or student driver may pick up meals for each school-aged child in the family.  Beginning Wednesday, the district will be delivering meals to the designated bus drop off sites between 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.  For a complete list of bus drop off sites, visit our eLearning website.  The bus stops will also be included in an email to parents. 

5. Other Support Services

Our outstanding social workers have compiled CoVid-19 Resource Guide that outlines healthcare information, internet information, and additional food assistance in Clover and Lake Wylie.  Our community has responded with overwhelming support for our students and families during this time.

Parents, we know that you are getting inundated with information from your child’s school and teachers right now.  It is going to feel a lot like the first week of school as we gear up for a whole new learning format.  We promise that the communication will become more manageable once we are fully underway.  Please continue to let us know how we can serve you best.

Thank you for your continued support!

Sincerely,

Sheila Quinn
Superintendent 

 

 

 

 *** Update March 15, 2020 ***

The district has been notified that Governor Henry McMaster will order the closing of all South Carolina schools beginning Monday, March 16 through the end of the month, with the possibility of extending the closure for a longer time period. In accordance with this order, the Clover School District will be closed beginning Monday, March 16. This includes the cancelation of all after school activities and sports.

The Governor’s order is allowing district staff to voluntarily report for work to complete plans for eLearning or distance learning, as well as meal programs similar to our summer meal programs. District staff and parents will receive additional emails with this information.

The district has planned for eLearning as part of the preparation for possible closures, and we will be providing parents with more information as soon as possible.  As this is a very fluid situation, we encourage everyone to take a deep breath.  The district plans to allow a two-day period to finalize all materials (technology and paper-generated) before beginning eLearning/distance learning.

This is a rapidly changing situation, so please check our website at www.clover.k12.sc.us for updates.  We will continue to communicate on our social media platforms and via email during the course of this closure. Any new information will be announced as soon as it is available.

We thank you for your patience as we finalize the educational plans and navigate the uncertainty of this situation. We hope everyone will remain safe and healthy over the coming weeks.

 

 

 

 

 *** Update March 13, 2020 ***

This is an important update from the Clover School District on the safety protocols associated with the Coronavirus.  As of March 13, 2020, DHEC has announced no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in York County. However, due to rising concerns around travel, the district is stepping up safety measures for our students. 

First, all out-of-state field trips and non-essential staff travel will be suspended beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, until further notice. While DHEC and the CDC have not placed restrictions on domestic travel, we believe this action is in the best interest of our students and staff. The district will work with sponsors and organizers to determine the availability of refunds per company policies and any information on this matter will be communicated at a later date.

Second, at this time, all in-district and in-county activities, athletics, field trips, and performances will continue as planned unless extenuating circumstances make it necessary to cancel the event.  Co-curricular events and competitions will continue unless canceled by the organizer.  The district will keep our community informed of any changes as soon as they are determined.

Third, Clover School District will continue to take attendance each day at school.  We encourage families to send students to school each day as long as the student is well.  If your student is unwell, please keep the student at home and let the school know of the illness through a parent or doctor note. 

In families where there is a high-risk child or adult, we recognize that parents may exercise the right to keep their child at home during the peak time of the virus.  In such a case, please notify the school in writing of this situation.  We will code the student’s absence appropriately.  As with all absences, students will be responsible for missed work and the school make up policy will apply.

As always, we encourage everyone to practice proper hygiene and handwashing.  Please stay home if you are feeling ill. We will continue to update our district website with information as it is made available, along with useful links to resources about the virus and preventative measures. Thank you for helping us keep our community safe and healthy.

 

 *** Update March 10, 2020 ***

COVID-19, more commonly known as the Coronavirus, has continued to spread and, as of March 9, there are now 423 confirmed and presumptive positive cases in the United States. As the virus spreads in the United States, government agencies are working to prevent or contain any cases identified in the U.S. Our district continues to monitor the situation, and we are working closely with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) and the South Carolina Department of Education to stay informed of any developments of confirmed cases in the state. We will implement recommendations and follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), SC DHEC, and the South Carolina Department of Education as they are determined.

Over the weekend, SC DHEC announced it was investigating five presumptive positive cases and two positive cases of COVID-19 in Charleston, Kershaw, and Spartanburg Counties. As we continue to monitor developments, preventative measures from DHEC and the CDC have not changed our plans at this time.

We continue to emphasize to our students and staff the importance of preventative measures, including washing your hands frequently, covering your cough and staying at home if you’re sick.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact your health care provider or call the DHEC Care Line at 1-855-472-3432.

The following information addresses questions you may have regarding school closures and planned field trips.

Possibility of Closures

At this time, we consider the closure of schools for an extended time due to health concerns to be unlikely, but possible. The decision to close schools due to coronavirus would only be made under direct guidance from SC DHEC and the SC Department of Education. In addition, the SC Department of Education, in partnership with SC DHEC and other state leaders, are exploring flexibility in the unlikely event of extended school closures. 

Field Trips

Clover School District is monitoring all of our field trips and school-sponsored travel and may cancel trips as necessary based on travel advisories from the CDC. At this time, there are no travel restrictions within the U.S. As always, parents reserve the right to limit their children's participation in field trips due to safety concerns. CSD cannot guarantee refunds on prepaid travel expenses.


Thank you for helping us keep our community safe and healthy!

 

*** February 26, 2020 ***

The district, and specifically our head nurse, will work closely with our contacts at the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) to stay informed of any developments of confirmed cases in the U.S. and implement any recommendations or guidelines from the CDC or SC DHEC as they are determined.

Clover School District has protocols in place for health outbreaks in our schools.  We are prepared to address any health issues with our school nurses and the assistance of state and local agencies.

As always we encourage everyone to practice proper handwashing, cover mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing, and children or staff should stay home if they are ill.
