Dear CJDS Families,

I hope this email finds you all well and enjoying summer.

We are continuing to plan for reopening together at the beginning of the school year, while also minding the ever-changing landscape of COVID-19. The task force is continuing to work through the broad and narrow strokes of our plans. This email contains important information about transportation, return to school forms and mandatory orientations.

Reaching out with questions and concerns is always welcome, and I am also going to be available online for “office hours” on Tuesday, July 14th from 9-10am and 7-8pm at the following link: meet.google.com/phh-eemn-mpq

Transportation continues to be an evolving issue. Bexley City Schools has sent out their transportation forms to families and we would like to ask that you return these forms to the district office indicating that you would like to utilize their transportation. Hopefully, we will soon have more information about how that will work. If transportation, from Bexley or otherwise, is not available, we will assist families with figuring out a carpool or other transportation method that is comfortable for you.

In preparation for our return to school, our summer forms are attached. As usual, we need updated health forms, emergency contacts, etc. As we get closer to school, we will have additional information about new policies and forms for returning to school after sickness, assessing student health and other such issues that will need additional attention. Please return the forms to CJDS by August 3rd.

Please save the date on your calendar for our returning to school orientations. Students will be invited to a live online orientation on Friday, August 14th at 9am. Parents are invited to participate in one of two mandatory orientations on Tuesday, August 11th at 7pm or Thursday, August 13th at 8pm. On August 17-19th groups of students will be invited to come to CJDS for an in-person visit with their class or cohort to meet their teachers, see their classrooms and get accustomed to the new routines. A schedule for these visits will be published soon. 

Have a lovely evening,
CJDS is a proud partner of JewishColumbus.
