5th - 8th Grade Device & Material Pickup: Thursday, August 13, 2020
On Thursday, August 13, 2020 we will have a chromebook/material pick-up in a drive thru fashion in the front of CCA for students in grades 5-8 from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Students will receive their daily schedule, chromebook and additional materials such as their math text book and reading texts, etc. to begin the first few weeks of school. Please remember that you must complete Chromebook Usage Agreement Form in order for your child(ren) to receive their device. You may also purchase the optional Chromebook Insurance by clicking here.

Week One: K - 4th Grade Phased In: August 17th - 21st
Attached is our 2020-2021 School Year Calendar.  Outlined in our calendar is when school will start. Along with CCSD we are using a phased-in approach. That means that only one grade level will attend school each day for the first week of school August 17-21. This will give us a chance to practice new routines and new procedures and help our students become acquainted with new expectations due to COVID-19. It is our goal to allow students in grades K-4 to ease back into their school routines. Our first week of school August 17-21 is outlined below:

  • Grades 5th-8th will begin their Virtual/Remote Learning on Monday, August 17, 2020 

  • Kindergarten students only will come to school on Monday, August 17, 2020

  • 1st Grade students only will come to school on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 

  • 2nd Grade students only will come to school on Wednesday, August 19, 2020 

  • 3rd Grade students only will come to school on Thursday, August 20, 2020

  • 4th Grade students only will come to school on Friday, August 21, 2020

School Supply Lists
Our teachers have worked hard updating our school supply lists to best prepare our students for successful in-person learning in the fall. You will notice a few important additions including art supplies that will make it possible for each student to have individual supplies. We have eliminated P.E. uniforms for this year and students will not be required to change out for gym class.

School supply lists can be accessed here, on our homepage, and on our mobile app.

Please note we will not be having a school supply fundraiser this year and school supplies cannot be shipped to CCA. All fundraising was stopped in the spring of 2020. This year we also want parents to purchase school supplies and label all school supplies for their child so that your child’s name is on everything. We will not have a lost and found. Supplies will not be shared in any classroom this year
