Governor Northam has issued the guidelines for reopening schools. CuCPS proactively had already established a CuCPS Return to School Task Force in May to begin planning for Summer School 2020 as well as for the 2020-2021 school year, which begins August 10, 2020. Now that the Governor has issued the guidelines for reopening based on phases and the Virginia Department of Education has provided guidance documents, we will now begin planning the details of how instruction will be delivered while maintaining the required social distancing and mitigation efforts. Getting the details, structures, and processes in place will take time. Please be patient with us as we fully develop our plan. Once we have the details, we will communicate them. We understand that families need time to plan for the upcoming school year as well. As always, thank you for your patience and understanding as we plan for something new and different for all of us. Our top priority will be the safety of our students, staff, families, and the community.
