DE College and Career Exploration Days Oct 28-30

Free Virtual Field Trip

The College and Career Exploration Event is a free virtual event where students will get a front-row seat to connect with professionals at some of Delaware’s largest companies and colleges. Students will get to participate in live Q+A, interactive virtual activities, and win prizes throughout the event. This event is all about exploration and discovery, and we hope that each student will walk away from each day more prepared (and excited) for their future.

When: Oct 28-30th, 2020

Who: This event is open to all middle and high school students and their educators

Where: This is a virtual event hosted on Zoom webinar

How: There are several options for bringing the College and Career Exploration Event to your students—

  • Tune in live from your classroom… Please register as an educator on the registration page, and indicate the number of students tuning in with you (this option is ideal for in-person instruction). After registering for the event, you will receive a registration link via email to broadcast to your students.
  • Have your students tune in individually… The schedule below explains the event’s purpose, and students can sign up to attend by using this link. We can provide a roster of students who have registered from your school to promote this individually (this option is ideal for virtual and hybrid learning). After registering individually, your students will receive a link via email to join the event.

Materials Distribution for Families

Cab Calloway: A community where the energy of arts and academics unite!

Hello Cab Students and Families:

We are so excited to see you when you come to pick up your materials for the fall.  We have created a schedule below to help us best organize distribution of materials, however, if you have students in more than one grade, you are welcome to choose the time that best works for your family.  You do not need to come on multiple days.  

When you arrive, park in the parking lot.   Follow the sidewalk to the front entrance.  You will enter through the front doors, check in at the front table where we will check your name off, and will give your student a copy of their schedule.   (Handicapped parking will be in front of the building.) 

We ask that only one parent accompany the student into the building.  Please self screen for any symptoms of illness.

If you have any symptoms DO NOT COME into the building.  

SELF ASSESSMENT SCREENING TOOL:

Please answer the following questions.

  • In the past 14 days, have you been near (within 6 feet for at least 15 minutes) a person who has a lab-confirmed case of COVID-19, or have you had direct contact with their mucus or saliva?
  • In the last 48 hours, have you had any of the following symptoms?
    • Fever of 100.4 F or above (or symptoms like alternating shivering and sweating)
    • New cough

If you answered YES to any of the questions above, do NOT come into the building.  

A mask must be worn at all times when in our building.  

Once you have checked in, we will direct you down the main hallway (past 201 and 203) where you will enter the gymnasium from the side entrance.   There you will follow the instructions to pick up your Chromebook and any materials your child will need to start the school year.  Several teaching staff members will be available to assist you in this process.  You may not go to any classrooms or to other areas of the building. 

Please feel free to complete the CHROMEBOOK paperwork in advance.
