We have good news to share! With so much unfortunate news these past many months, here is something to celebrate!
Through the assessment of our building restoration process, we now have solidified the following:
- All 21 elementary school buildings will be able to host in-person instruction beginning the first day of school - September 21st. For those families who chose in-person learning, please report to your respective school building.
- With the opening of all elementary school buildings, the three middle schools (Harding, Wilson, and Roosevelt) that were set to house elementary students will now be able to host in-person instruction for their students beginning the first day of school - September 21st. For those families in these three middle schools who chose in-person learning, please report to your respective school building.
While we are happy about this expanded building offering, our hearts are with Franklin, McKinley, and Taft middle school families, along with Jefferson, Kennedy, and Washington high school families. Every effort is being made to get these buildings accessible as soon as possible. The projected schedule is:
- November 16, 2020
- Franklin, McKinley, and Taft
- January 4, 2021
- Jefferson, Kennedy, and Washington
Online instruction will occur for the noted schools above until the respective building can be opened for those families who chose the in-person learning option. Please note that some buildings may progressively open as access becomes available. Of course, we will let you know as soon as we can share that good news.
Deadline to Make Changes
The district has set a deadline of September 11th for families to make a change to their Return to Learn choice. Reminder that options are: in-person learning, short-term online learning, or long-term online learning via Cedar Rapids Virtual Academy. Please contact your respective school to alter your original choice.
Please reference the new school calendar document that reflects adjusted professional learning dates, first semester term date, and conference dates.
As information evolves most every day, thank you for your patience and attention to the CRCSD communications. We are all in this together. We miss you!
