Update for 8/8/2020

Senator Summer Communication from
Dr. Sylvia M. Henderson, Interim Superintendent

Transcript from the call sent on 8/8/2020:

"Good evening,

This is Dr. Sylvia Henderson, Interim Superintendent for the Capital School District. Our 2020-2021 calendar has been updated due to the COVID pandemic. The first day of school for students will be September 8th, 2020. Please visit or to quickly access the revised calendar. Teachers and staff will begin professional learning and planning on August 25. After much deliberation and consultation with our Board of Education, along with guidance from the state, we will embrace a “safety first” approach to learning this fall.

The Capital School District will begin the school year using a full remote learning model for the first 6 weeks of school. Our reopening teams will continue to collaborate to support teaching and learning providing the best possible education for our Senators as they learn from home. We will be supporting students without devices for learning at home and assisting families who need internet access. More detailed plans will be forthcoming on our Senator remote learning plan.

Due to the incredible response, our parent surveys are still open and will remain open until Wednesday, August 12th to ensure that every family has the opportunity to submit a response. Printed surveys for families are also available at the district office. Please complete the survey to ensure that your needs are considered.

I want to thank all the parents, staff and community members that have reached out to me during the course of the summer. We know our students are best served in the classroom with our teachers. However, until we are able to return safely to the school building, we will ensure that every child has access to a high quality at home program.

Thank you and please stay safe.

Dr. Sylvia Henderson
Interim Superintendent
Capital School District "

Current School Offices Status

Summer hours are in effect through August 14th, 2020.

Please review the recommendations from health officials below:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after coughing or sneezing. Alcohol-based hand cleaners that are at least 60-95% alcohol are also effective.
  • Clean frequently touched surfaces
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes. The main way that the flu spreads from person to person is in the droplets produced by coughs and sneezes, so it is important to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or cough/sneeze into your elbow or shoulder, not into your hands.
  • Do not share personal items such as drinks, food, or utensils.
  • Do not attend school if you are sick. Any student or staff who is determined to be sick while at school will be sent home.
  • Keep sick individuals at home for at least 24 hours after there is no longer a fever or signs of a fever without the use of fever-reducing medicine like ibuprofen or acetaminophen.
