WELCOME TO CDS
Capital Day School is dedicated to empowering students in early childhood classes through the eighth grade for success through an enriched curriculum that inspires academic excellence and individual growth.
The school promotes in students a strong sense of independence and responsibility for themselves and for others. Capital Day School welcomes students of diverse backgrounds and inspires intellectual curiosity in a positive, nurturing, and safe environment.
As you would expect, due to COVID-19, there will be some necessary changes. First, you will find our enrollment will be limited. Additionally, because of guidelines set by Team Kentucky, our school day will look a little different this year.
Teachers and students enrolled in first grade and above will be required to wear a cloth face mask when arriving on campus.
All students will be temperature checked by a staff member at the student’s car before entering the buildings. (no buses)
After being temperature checked, students will be sent individually, directly to their homeroom. Students will be required to wash their hands upon arrival in homeroom.
In classrooms, students will be assigned seating and will each have their own supplies with which to work. We will instruct children how to social distance utilizing actions such as “airplane arms," etc.
Most lunches will take place in the classroom. (We do not have a cafeteria.) Those lunching in the multi-purpose room will be grouped by class and properly distanced and the room sanitized to follow Safety Expectations. Common areas will be sanitized after each class.
At the beginning of the school year, students in grades 3rd and up will have Chromebooks issued by the school.
In the event CDS goes to remote instruction, we are ready! Just a few examples of how we meet the needs of our students.
The Preschool daily remote curriculum includes Math, Science, Social Studies, fine motor & art/gross motor/social & emotional work. We cover at least three subjects daily.
Each week starts with morning meeting on Monday. Students attend every class on Monday and each class meets for two 35 minute sessions during the week before lunch. Electives meet in the afternoons.
