The Month of August - What Parents Need to Know Right Now


Is my student morning or afternoon? Who is my child's teacher?
This information will be communicated to you 1-2 weeks before school starts. Your teacher will reach out to you. At this time (Aug. 6), we are waiting to hear from Carroll Community for morning and afternoon lists for preschool.

Online Registration for Those Riding CCSD Busses
Families can now register their preschooler for CCSD bussing at this link.  Drop-off and pick-up locations and times will be communicated to you in the next couple weeks.

*NOTE: Due to COVID, CCSD will NOT be transporting students who live within a 2 miles radius of school. However, ALL preschool and optional kindergarten students, as well as, students getting picked-up and dropped-off at daycares WILL be transported. 


Online Registration for Kuemper's North & West Route
Families who plan to ride one of Kuemper's north or west busses must register their preschooler at www.kuemper.org/backtoschool. About one week before school starts, families will receive a letter in the mail notifying them of the pick-up/drop-off times and locations.

Preschool Open House
There will be a preschool open house several days prior to the first day of school. This is an opportunity for parents and students to visit their teacher and classroom and drop off school supplies. Preschool teachers will notify families of this date.

First Day of School
Monday, August 31, 2020.  (K-12 students start August 25)


School Supply List
