CRCSD Return to Learn Updates

Parents and Guardians,

The September 21st school start date is fast approaching! We can’t wait to be together again, whether that is in-person or virtually. 

Please note that the deadline to make a change to your family choice for in-person or online learning is Friday, September 11th. After this date, you will not be able to make a change until October 12th, as we need to have plans in place for the beginning of this unique school year. To make a change by the deadline, please contact your respective school. As a reminder, families choosing CRVA (6-12 online school) should contact your school counselor to enroll. 

To ensure you have all the information you need to make or change your decision, here are the current schedules:
