In the ongoing efforts to help as many CHCCS students as possible access library books, a few schools have recently instituted curbside pickup as an extension of the media centers’ service.

On a Wednesday morning in September, Glenwood Elementary School (GES) counselor, William Rathbun, joined a class of fifth students at 8:00 online to talk with them about loneliness and connection during remote learning. “I want you to think about how we take care of each other and connect with each other while we’re learning online,” Rathbun said. “We can still stay connected -- it’s just different.”
Carrboro Elementary School (CES) offers both dual-language and traditional tracks, with slightly higher enrollment in dual-language. During Hispanic Heritage Month (HHM), students and their families share and teach about their cultural traditions and in the past, the festive atmosphere has pervaded every hallway and learning space. But the transition to online learning means online celebrations, too, and the planning team has worked hard to create a comparable sense of joyful observance.
