Back-to-School Countdown
Posted on 08/09/2021
Greetings CPS community:

Graphic with photograph of child using markers to write on a drawing pad. Below photograph is text that reads "Back to school 2021. September 9 - Grades 1-12. September 13 - PK, JK, K. Recover & Thrive. www.cpsd.us"One month from today, we will kick off the new school year! Later this week you will receive a separate message asking you to sign-into the new CPS Family Portal and complete the Annual Back-to-School Forms, which are due by the first day of school.

Later this month, you can expect a packet in the mail with key information about the upcoming school year, including updates on COVID-19 protocols which were approved by the School Committee on August 3. The protocols for Fall 2021 include masking indoors for all students and staff regardless of vaccination status and regular testing for all students and staff. You can review the full updated COVID-19 Manual.

We look forward to seeing our students for the first day of school: students in Grades 1 - 12 on Thursday, September 9 and our preschool, JK and kindergarten students on Monday, September 13.

Make it great!


Dr. Victoria L. Greer
Interim Superintendent
