Cape Henlopen Educational Foundation members delivered more than $15,000 worth of donated school supplies to all district schools Aug. 30, helping to stock supply shelves for all the district’s teachers.                    

Now in its fourth year, the Caravan of Caring school supply drive supports teachers who spend their own money each year to buy materials for students who come to school without paper, notebooks, pencils and other necessary items.

Sydney’s Restaurant and Lounge, Lefty’s Alley & Eats, Schell Brothers and Staples hosted donation drop-off boxes Aug. 1-25, where community members deposited binders, pocket folders, zip drives, composition books, colored pencils, crayons, glue sticks, scissors, earbuds, sanitizer, tissues and more.

SUSSEX COUNTY, Del.- Students will return to class nine days from now in the Cape Henlopen School District. 

On August 19th, the district's board voted unanimously that masks are required indoors for students, teachers, and visitors regardless of vaccination status, upholding governor carney's mandate. 
Bus drivers and their passengers must also wear masks. But COVID-19 Coordinator for the district Dr. LouAnn Hudson says these are not the only mitigation practices that will be present in the schools.
 
"Every layer can keep our students and staff safer," Dr. Hudson said. "So we of course are promoting vaccinations and have run several vaccination clinics for our staff and our students since last January and February."
