October 25, 2020

Dear Families:

I hope this update finds you well on another beautiful fall morning.


District COVID Data Dashboard

This week’s District COVID Data Dashboard is posted to the webpage.  Total school related cases remain at 5 with no new cases this past week.  There was no transmission of the virus within the schools as a result of the 5 cases.


Local COVID Community Data

The Concord and Carlisle dashboard is being updated after a late release of the community data from the state this week.  The state’s data indicates that Concord remains in the green range and Carlisle in the white.


Halloween Advisory

The Concord Town Manager and Concord Board of Health released a Halloween Advisory.  Please read carefully in order to ensure a safe and fun Halloween for everyone.


Theater and Kicks for Cancer

Congratuations to CCHS Theater for bringing the stage back to life through a creative approach to an outdoor performance.  Another tradition at CCHS, Kicks for Cancer, is occuring virtually and culminated in a modified day of soccer yesterday to raise funds and support those impacted by the disease.


Appreciation and Caution

The low virus rates locally reflect ongoing commitment to safe practices.  With rising cases across the state, it is imperative that we remain vigilant and exercise caution.  Wearing masks, physically distancing, and limiting social groups is crucial.  Our ability to offer programs and in-person school depends on the rates remaining low.


WIQH Special Programming

The radio station is hosting special programming related to cultural competency, equity, anti-racism, and cancer awareness through authentic conversations between students and faculty.  The programs are available on the WIQH website if you are not able to listen to the broadcasts.

Suspension of Snow Days

The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education officially approved remote learning days in lieu of snow day cancellations.


A survey of staff, parents, and students will be distributed in November.  The results will guide us as we enter the middle of the school year.

The Concord Free Public Library continues to offer virtual programs for families and students.  Among the list of events is a Spooky Family Trivia Night on October 30.
