Students in Mrs. Nash-Mayberry's Civics classes today and Thursday received the opportunity to speak via a Google Meet with author, retired policeman, and teacher Paul Echols. Echols was very instrumental in solving the cold case of 9 murders committed in the last 1970s/80 by a criminal throughout southern Illinois and Missouri. He also worked with the Innocence Project to clear a person's name who was wrongly convicted for a crime in southern Illinois that they didn't commit. Students appreciated him answering all of their questions about criminal justice.

Cobden Homecoming Update: Student Council has been busy planning this year's Homecoming activities. The theme is "Save the Last Dance" and is scheduled for February 1st-5th. In keeping with Covid guidelines, we are working to have the traditional games and activities while also keeping safety a priority. Students will be allowed to dress up throughout the week and sign up to participate in Battle of the Classes on Friday, February 5th. The games will be in the morning hours instead of the afternoon and will be live-streamed on YouTube. Students will watch the games from their classrooms, and parents are also encouraged to watch. The homecoming court will be announced next week, but the coronation will look a bit different this year. Coronation is scheduled for Saturday, February 6th, at 6:00 pm in the gymnasium. All members of the court will attend, along with their parents. The ceremony will be live-streamed as well for others to view. At this point, a Homecoming dance will not be planned but may be allowed later in the year if mitigations allow it. Student Council has done a fabulous job planning new and creative activities for this year's Homecoming. Further details will follow as we continue to get closer to February 1st.

Dear Cobden Students and Families, As we have shared previously, the COVID-19 pandemic would undoubtedly require the district to be flexible and responsive to quickly changing circumstances. Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, our Board of Education has made the decision to take a short, adaptive pause and transition all students to remote learning, beginning Friday, November 20. Our plan, at this time, is to transition back to our current schedule on November 30 when students return to school from Thanksgiving Break. Students will follow the same class schedule in remote learning. Please be on the lookout for emails from classroom teachers with more detailed information about remote learning plans. We promise that it was not a decision any of us took lightly and it was made in consultation with the Southern Seven Health Department. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support as we navigate new challenges this school year. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Sincerely, Edwin Shoemate Superintendent Estimados estudiantes y familias de Cobden: Como hemos compartido anteriormente, la pandemia de COVID-19 sin duda requeriría que el distrito sea flexible y responda a las circunstancias que cambian rápidamente. Desafortunadamente, debido a circunstancias imprevistas, nuestra Junta de Educación ha tomado la decisión extremadamente difícil de hacer una breve pausa adaptativa y hacer la transición de todos los estudiantes al aprendizaje remoto a partir del viernes 20 de noviembre. Nuestro plan, en este momento, es regresar a nuestro horario actual el 30 de noviembre después de que los estudiantes regresen a la escuela después de las vacaciones de Acción de Gracias. Los estudiantes seguirán el mismo horario de clases en aprendizaje remoto. Esté atento a los correos electrónicos de los maestros del aula con información más detallada sobre los planes de aprendizaje remoto. Prometimos que no fue una decisión que ninguno de nosotros tomó a la ligera y que se tomó en consulta con el Departamento de Salud de Southern Seven. Gracias por su paciencia, comprensión y apoyo mientras navegamos por nuevos desafíos e inconvenientes este año escolar. Como siempre, no dude en ponerse en contacto conmigo si tiene alguna pregunta. Sinceramente, Edwin Shoemate Superintendente
