• Task Force

  • Return to School Plan Our desire is to restart school in August for all CCSD students with as much normalcy as is possible given the conditions at that time. We are tasked in the coming weeks with creating school settings that allow teachers and students to re-engage in quality learning while also taking appropriate measures to ensure their health and safety. 

    This safe restart in August will allow our students to return to their normal routines of learning and participation in school activities. We also understand that this safe restart will allow our parents to return to their normal lives knowing that their children are growing academically and being kept safe at school.

    While we are not entirely sure today what our normal will look like when we restart, our staff, our parents, and our community deserve the assurance that we are diligently planning for a safe return to school for all students this August.
