Dear Families, 

Thank you for another wonderful week of Virtual School and our “hybrid” model for those children who have returned to campus with the CAI exception. We are in the final stretch of the first semester with just over 3 weeks of school until our winter break. I know we are all looking forward to having the children away from the screen over the break.  

The faculty and staff are preparing for having students on campus in hopes of getting permission from the Ministry of health to re-open the full CDS campus next semester. Last week, the Ministry approved  the health and safety protocols that need to be in place for campus reopening, of which we are in full compliance. We are currently working on details of our full campus reopening and making adjustments as we continue to learn more about best practices in bringing students back to campus as well as lessons learned through our CAI opening.  

Please be sure to watch my video update for important primary updates and to read the House specific information below for detailed information specific to your child’s grade level. 

The Spirit of Giving 

In the spirit of showing gratitude, we will create baskets of supplies for the Country Day School maintenance, cleaning, cafeteria, secretarial and security staff. We ask that each student  bring in an item to fill the  “gratitude baskets” to help show appreciation of the people who help us each day. 

Please bring in the following items:

  • Early Childhood - Rice & BeanSpirit of giving
  • Elementary - Non-perishable food (NOT rice & beans)
  • Middle School - Soaps & detergents 
  • High School - Luxury snacks 

As there are 39 maintenance, cleaning, cafeteria, secretarial and security staff members, it is very important that each student bring in an item so we can fill the baskets with supplies for each staff member. 

Please be sure to send in your item before Friday, December 4. The highschool National Honor Society students will put the baskets together and deliver them to the staff!  Thank you for your help in showing gratitude to the amazing staff who make our CDS experience possible! 

We are all looking forward to the upcoming long weekend this week in honor of US Thanksgiving and the Abolición del Ejército holiday. Please be sure that your child spends this time away from the screen and is able to get outside and enjoy time out of doors and with family as much as possible. 

Please reach out to your child’s teacher, one of the primary counselors, or myself if you have questions. 

Wishing you and your family a lovely long weekend. 

Best, 
Keitsa Brisson
