Chesapeake Public Schools is pleased to provide a variety of high quality instructional programs for students this summer. Generally, student placement in summer learning academies is determined by the grade in which a student is enrolled during the 2020 – 2021 school year. Some classes have specific grade level requirements and/or prerequisites. Elementary students will be invited to participate by their school. Middle and High school students and their parents/guardians should consult with school counselors and/or teachers to determine which programs may be appropriate. All summer programs and classes are contingent on sufficient enrollment and availability of appropriately endorsed instructional staff.
Dr. Cotton presented the instructional plan for the 2021-22 school year at the April 19, 2021 School Board Meeting. While the primary mode of instruction for ALL grade levels will be full-time in-person learning, Chesapeake will continue to offer virtual learning opportunities by application only. Families at the elementary and middle school levels who would like to apply for virtual learning will be required to make a full-year commitment to Virtual Virginia. Applications are now available on our website.
Beginning April 21st, JMS will offer a Spring Sports Intramural Program after school Wednesdays and Thursdays until 5:15pm. Intramural practice will begin immediately after school, and will end at 5:15 pm. Both boys and girls will be able to participate in either Field Hockey, Track or Volleyball. Registration for week 4 will begin on Thursday at 6 pm.
Parents and guardians now have the opportunity to report their student(s) as absent or tardy electronically in ParentVUE. Available in both the ParentVUE web access and mobile device app, this new feature appears as a button on the home screen.
The Report Absence feature allows parents and guardians to report absences up to seven days in advance and can accommodate single-day and multi-day absences. For each absence reported, parents and guardians must provide a short note to explain the reason. This note will help school attendance secretaries select the correct attendance code for the absence/tardy. If a doctor’s note or other documentation is available, there is an option to upload that resource when parents report the absence or tardy.
Parents and guardians will receive a confirmation message once an absence or tardy has been submitted successfully. Please be aware that parents and guardians cannot delete or modify reported absences/tardies. Any changes or cancellations must be communicated to the school attendance secretary by an email or phone call. Parents can review student attendance information, including any reported absences/tardies, by selecting the Attendance tab in ParentVUE. Parents and guardians will see the reported absence/tardy coded as “Unexcused” immediately after they submit an absence. Once the school attendance secretary reviews the parent-submitted absences/tardies, the parent will see the reported change to the correct attendance code.
This is the new preferred method for parents to report absences and tardies. This electronic notification would serve as the written notice required for student absences and tardies.
The CPS URL for ParentVUE has changed – this will affect both the app and the web link. Please visit Chesapeake Public Schools updates for additional information.
