At Governor Hogan’s press conference on Jan. 21, he strongly encouraged schools to return to in-person learning no later than March 1, and provided updated guidance to support reopening. 

When schools closed in late November, CCPS students in Pre-K through 3rd grade were back for in-person learning, with plans finalized for other grades to follow shortly. Nearly all staff have also continued to work in buildings since the beginning of the school year. 

Given these circumstances, CCPS is well prepared for a timely re-opening for all grades as follows:

 

 

  • Virtual Learning will remain an option for families who want their children to continue to learn at home. No changes will be made to their current schedule.
  • The shorter student day will remain unchanged for all students for the remainder of the school year.

 

AA/BB Schedule Details

Families will not be able to choose an AA or BB schedule. Students will be assigned to a schedule based on bus routes. Families will be advised by the school of their student’s schedule as soon as possible.

Students on the AA Schedule:

  • Monday and Tuesday in the building for in-person instruction.
  • Wednesday at home for an asynchronous day (same as current schedule).
  • Thursday and Friday at home for synchronous virtual learning (same as current schedule).

Students on the BB Schedule:

  • Monday and Tuesday at home for synchronous virtual learning (same as current schedule).
  • Wednesday at home for an asynchronous day (same as current schedule).
  • Thursday and Friday in the building for in-person instruction.

 

Student Information Questionnaires

In order to know how many students in grades 7th, 8th, 10th, 11th and 12th will be returning to the building and how many will require transportation, families will need to provide information through a CCPS questionnaire

Families of students in PK4, kindergarten through 6th grade and 9th grade have already completed questionnaires. Anyone needing to change information given in their previous questionnaires should contact the child’s school directly. 

 

Kajeets Smartspots

Students who were provided Kajeet Smartspots should keep those for the time being in order to have connectivity to their classrooms on their synchronous learning days at home.

 

Please note:

  • Face coverings are required for all students ages five and over.
  • Protocols for preventing the spread of COVID-19 through cleaning, self-assessment, and social distancing are detailed in the CCPS Recovery Plan
