As you are aware, our district has completed and submitted our return to school plans to the New York State Department of Education. Throughout this process we have worked within the parameters and the guidance documents provided by the New York State Department of Health and the New York State Department of Education. Our administrative team and our reopening task force will continue to use the appropriate guidance documents, as well as the results of our recent parent survey, to guide us in our reentry plans. It is important to note that while we submitted our plan on July 31st, we will continue to make adjustments to that plan throughout the month of August and into the fall as we fully expect the parameters to be changed as more information becomes available. This was very complicated work, with numerous variables beyond our control, yet we believe we have created a plan that addresses the safety, academic, and social-emotional needs of our students and families. Here is the link to the plan that has been submitted: https://www.cvcougars.org/o/cvcs/page/reopening-plan-and-information

Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) is a new crisis response nutrition program activated as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Pandemic-EBT food benefits will be issued automatically to families whose children received free or reduced-price meals at school through the federal lunch program. This includes all students at Cassadaga Valley Central School since free meals are provided for all students. Each child will receive $420 on a new or existing EBT card that can be used like a bank debit card to purchase food from participating stores. Cards cannot be given to another person or household to use. However, families who wish to donate their benefit can buy food and donate it to a food pantry. Please check with local food pantries to see what items are needed. Learn more at: hungersolutionsny.org/pebt

With regards to the food distributions, we only get 45 dairy/protein boxes delivered to us. We will be setting up a new pick up policy starting next week. If there is a line, each person in line can get 1 box of each and then get back in line to receive additional boxes. For the produce boxes, the district receives 250 boxes every other week, so we will handle this pick up differently. Both programs are grant funded, so there’s little the District can do about the amount it receives. We are grateful for all donations we receive from Farms to Families and from Feed more WNY.

77,998 - That is how many meals our team packed and delivered during the school closure (March - June)! A big shout out to the Food Service staff, Teacher Aides, Buildings/Grounds/Custodial staff, and Transportation staff for a job very well done! The hard work and dedication of everyone that was involved is appreciated not only by the District, but by the many families that were impacted, as well.

Recently, Coach Crandall wanted to make sure even though the season couldn't be played, the senior girls were recognized and sent off with memories of being a Lady Cougar, including a small jar containing dirt from the softball field.

While the teachers are working hard for our students, preparing virtual lessons and conducting various online sessions, in their down time they do some interesting things! For this week's Friday Fun Day, MS/HS students will be sent a link via their school email to see what else our teachers have been up to, aside from class work! Here are a few "teasers."

Today the 6th grade math classes practiced plotting points on the coordinate grid with a life-size model created on the classroom floor. Students were given a Harry Potter themed task card that included a coordinate that they had to correctly plot, using themselves as the "dot".
