  • May/Early Summer School Information

    The demand for seats in the May/Early Summer School courses was far greater than we had imagined.  As a result, unfortunately not every student was placed in a course.  Notification was sent out Friday to all students/parents/guardians regarding their enrollment status in May/Early Summer School.


    1)  Dates:  The session runs from Monday, April 27 - Friday, May 22;


    2)  Where to find your course: Students should see their course listed among their other courses in Schoology starting Monday, April 27;


    3)  Webinars:  We will have optional webinars on Sunday, April 26 to answer any general questions you may have about your May/Early Summer School online course at 5:00pm, 7:00pm and 9:00pm (same content repeated each time).  Go to https://cpsk12.zoom.us/j/8543690348 to join that webinar that the scheduled time;


    4)  Course-Specific Orientations:  Students will be receiving an email from their teacher about their course-specific orientation ZOOM meeting before the start of the session.  Students should make sure to continue to check their CPS student email for that information.


    If your student is no longer interested in taking this course please let the summer school office know by emailing them at summerschool@cpsk12.org.
