Opening of School for 2020-2021

 

We look forward to welcoming you back on August 17 for the 2020-2021 school year. With safety and rigorous learning as our guiding principles, we are pleased to announce our school reopening plan. Our plan includes two full-time options for our students: In-Person Learning and Remote Learning.

CFSD's reopening plan includes a contingency model that will move all teachers and students to Remote Learning if the governor makes the decision to close  schools and In-Person Learning is no longer available as an option. Additionally, if In-Person Learning for grades K-12 is delayed beyond August 17, we will begin the school year teaching all scheduled classes 100% remotely using CFSDOnline with Google Classroom as the online learning platform. Students will participate in Remote Learning with their assigned teacher(s) at their enrolled school with an established schedule in order to provide instruction in all areas of the curriculum. This will allow for a smooth transition to In-Person Learning with as few changes as possible to staff or student schedules when schools are allowed to open.

In order to staff appropriately, we are asking you to reserve Remote Learning by July 27, 2020 if your student(s) will not be attending school in-person for the 2020-2021 school year. Click on the green Remote Learning button below to navigate to our Remote Learning page and study our plan.  To select the Remote Learning option for your student, click on the Remote Learning Reservation button found on that page.  You will need your ParentVue login credentials (username, password) to complete your reservation.  No action is required by families who are currently registered for school and are planning to select the In-Person Learning option.
