Senators@Home and COVID-19 Information


We are actively planning to support students who choose to transition to a hybrid learning model pending approval at the October Board of Education meeting and guidance from the Division of Public Health.

The hybrid model is a combination of at-home learning and two days a week of in-person learning at school. The choice made for each child will commit them to participate in that model until the end of the first semester, January 27th.

When Capital transitions to the hybrid model, families will have 2 choices:

Option 1: Send your child to school for 2 days per week with the other 3 days of virtual at-home instruction

Option 2:
Continue with the virtual at-home instruction model 5 days per week

Learning Approach Commitment Survey

This survey closed on September 30th, 2020.

Families who did not provide a response by September 30th, 2020 will automatically continue with virtual at-home learning.

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

Good Evening Senator Nation!! Last evening, the Capital School District Board of Education announced their decision to safely transition to the hybrid approach to learning.  Students who opted to participate in hybrid learning, by responding to the learning commitment on-line survey during the last week of September, will start the week of November 9th for grades pre-K to 4 as well as our special schools and programs. Secondary schools, grades 5 through 12, will begin at school learning on November 30th.

Families who have requested their child be in the Hybrid Approach will hear more details, including days of attendance and transportation, from their elementary schools, special schools and programs by the beginning of next week. Secondary schools, including the Kent County Secondary Intensive Learning Center (KCSILC), will be sending information regarding their November 30th opening in the next few weeks.  

Please remember those that opted to continue participating in Remote Learning don’t need to do anything and will stay in remote until the end of January 2021. The district will reassess current conditions and survey parents again for their learning commitment response for the second semester in early January. 

Staff have been working behind the scenes for some time now to plan for the reopening of our school buildings and we are proud of our amazing group of educators. The health, safety and education of our children, staff and community will always guide our decisions every step of the way.

Thank you for your support.  Stay safe and have a wonderful evening.

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.
