Logo - Wide copy.png

Please review the following notes for elementary school families for the start of the 2021-22 school year.

Health & Safety

All who enter our school, including students, will be required to wear a face covering that fits the CDC guidelines for masks. We will ensure students are properly distanced to the greatest extent possible and that hand washing/sanitizing occurs regularly. While there will no longer be a required student screener submission each morning, families are responsible to ensure their child is not sent to school while sick or having experienced recent close contact/potential exposure. 

To understand the health and safety structures in place for this school year, visit www.ccsd93.com/mitigation for CCSD93’s complete Mitigation Guide for the 2021-22 school year.

School Supplies

If you have not yet had the opportunity to purchase school supplies, please find our school’s supply list at www.ccsd93.com/schoolsupplies to be sure your child is prepared for the first day.

Please be sure to double-check the school website calendar for the most up-to-date calendar information.

Meals

During mealtime, students will be seated at tables at a distance of 3-6 feet to the greatest extent possible, meeting health guidelines. To start the year, we will offer bag lunches to students, or you may send your child with a lunch as you would during a typical school year. Students will have the opportunity to request a lunch in the morning during class to receive one at mealtime. At this time, school meals are provided free of charge to our families due to COVID-19 relief funding, and students who receive a lunch will also be provided a free breakfast for the following day at the end of the school day. Families will be notified if and when meals once again require payment. 

Bus Information

In a few moments, students who receive busing from CCSD93 will receive a separate message with bus route, stop and timing information for this school year. If you do not receive it and believe you should have, please call the school office using the contact information below.

New Student Information System: TeacherEase

New this year, CCSD93 is introducing TeacherEase as our student information system that replaces PowerSchool. It will provide an improved experience for you to track your child’s progress throughout the school year. You will be notified after the first few weeks of school how to login and use TeacherEase to track your child’s progress.

Translations

Should you need translated versions of messages, you are invited to use our website’s automatic translation feature. Find out more about it at www.ccsd93.com/t

Parent Handbook

Next week you will receive a physical copy of the District’s Parent Handbook, which describes CCSD93’s programs, services and more. You can always find it online at www.ccsd93.com/handbook
