It's About Time - Back to School Update

CPS Family, It's hard to believe that summer is quickly coming to an end. Today, August 1, all CPS buildings return to regular hours of operation. All facilities are open from 7:30 AM to 4:30 PM. Don't have time to stop by? That's ok. Connect with us via Let's Talk. Choose your topic or school to receive the quickest response. We look forward to hearing from you!

Please plan to join us this Thursday, August 4, for the Back to School Community event at Doane University. There will be games, food, school supplies, and many community partners onsite. The event starts at 5 PM and will conclude at 8:30 PM. Stick around for a free movie in the Heckman Auditorium after the event.

CCLC, our after-school program, is taking registrations now. You only need to register your student if they are in grades K-5. All secondary students (6-12) are automatically registered. We may already have a waiting list, so please sign up today! Click here to register today.

Open House is a great time to connect with your student's school. At CPS, we believe in educating the whole child, and we can't do it alone. The Elementary open house is on Monday, August 8, and is by appointment only. The Intermediate School open house is on Tuesday, August 9. It too is by appointment only. Middle School open house will be held on Monday, August 8, by appointment only, and the high school open house is on Tuesday, August 9 (no appointment needed). For exact times, please check the District calendar here.

We are excited to welcome you and your student(s) to the 2022-2023 school year. We continue to work to improve our communications and outreach, so please be on the lookout for a couple of exciting announcements very soon. Below is a list of important upcoming dates. If you have questions, comments, concerns, or compliments, reach out and Let's Talk.
