Senators@Home and COVID-19 Information


As planned, Capital School District’s Board of Education met this evening to review and discuss current COVID-19 conditions, including recommendations from the Delaware Department of Education, the Delaware Division of Public Health and the Office of the Governor.

As a result,

  • Capital School District students who were previously participating in the Hybrid model in grades PreK to grade 8, and special programs, KCCS and including KCSILC, will transition back to the Hybrid model using some remote and in person instruction starting Monday, January 11th.
  • Dover High School grades, 9 to 12 students will begin the Hybrid model on Tuesday, January 19th (*Updated). Students currently using the remote learning model will continue with remote learning.
  • For Central Middle and William Henry Middle Schools, students who selected the Hybrid learning model in grades 5 and 7 will attend school on Mondays and Tuesdays and will be virtual Wednesday through Friday. Students in grades 6 and 8 will be virtual Monday through Wednesday and will attend school on Thursday and Friday. Additional details will be coming directly from your child’s school.
  • If your child was previously participating in the Hybrid model and you have questions about what day they will attend in person versus participating in remote learning, please contact your child’s school main office and they will be glad to help.

Teachers are strongly encouraged to come into their classrooms prior to the return of students. Wednesdays will continue to be asynchronous with remote learning for students and teachers will have the option to work from the building or remotely.

We are glad to begin transitioning our students back to our school with Hybrid Learning, and will continue to closely monitor conditions within each school and throughout the state to ensure that safety is a top priority for everyone. We express our gratitude to our families, students, and staff for taking precautions to prevent the spread of COVID. Thank you for practicing social distancing, for wearing face masks, for frequently washing your hands and the numerous other recommendations we hear each and every day.

I know we are all happy to put 2020 behind us, we hope we can soon do the same to this COVID pandemic. Please know that we are with you in these trying times and that we look forward to the promise held within this new year of 2021.

Have a wonderful evening, please stay safe and thank you for listening.

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.
