Opening 2020 Information

  • We will share all of our communications regarding opening schools as well as information we receive from federal, state, and local officials on this page. Please use opening2020@csdecatur.net to contact the CSD team leading the planning teams. We will continue to update this page as we receive new information.

Our Approach

  • As a school system, all of our decisions are focused on doing what is best for our students. As we navigate through this unprecedented situation and make plans for how we will welcome staff and students back in August, it is critical that we find a balance between mitigating the spread of the virus within our school community and the potential harm that school closures have on the mental and physical wellbeing of our students.   

    When plans are finalized, district-wide communication will be sent to all stakeholder groups. When a decision is reached, we must be ready to adjust quickly and implement alternative plans depending on orders that our state and local governments issue.  

Virtual Learning Readiness Form- Due August 5

  • Does your child need a Chromebook or a hotspot? Will your child be participating in our school lunch program?

    As a reminder, please complete the Virtual Learning Readiness form for each student in your household as soon as possible. The form will close at noon on Wednesday, August 12. CSD and DEF will use information gathered through this form to help make the virtual learning experience the best it can be. More specifically, answers from this form will be used to know who needs a Chromebook, who will use our nutrition offerings, who may need tutoring or child care assistance, and much more. Thank you in advance for taking a few minutes to complete this form.
