    Cherry Creek Schools is committed to providing excellence in education – through In-Person and Online learning options – while taking extensive measures to protect the health of students and staff.

    This website is intended to keep the Cherry Creek Schools community informed and engaged as we move through the 2020-21 school year amid the pandemic.

    Please read Superintendent Siegfried's Dec. 15 letter for specific information about learning during the second semester of the 2020-2021 school year. You can track the COVID-19 incidence rate here: https://covid19.colorado.gov/data/covid-19-dial-dashboard.

    All CCSD middle and high schools will reopen for full In-Person learning on Monday, April 5. For more information, read Superintendent Siegfried's March 10 letter, or view his presentation to the Board of Education.


    Please check our Frequently Asked Questions for updates and new information.

    It is critical to our success for all members of our community to follow best practices by wearing masks in public places, avoiding large crowds and keeping your student home from school if anyone in the family is showing signs or symptoms of COVID-19.

  • Learning Options for 2020-2021

    For CCSD Planning Forward, we start with our guiding principles and Future Forward goals as the foundation, and layer on CDE and public health requirements to create a restart plan that prioritizes academic excellence and health/safety that includes the following options: Online Learning K-12Full In-Person Learning (PreK-5), Hybrid Learning (6-12) and POST COVID-19. Our goal is to restore in-person learning to the greatest extent possible while adhering to public health requirements. As requirements change, we will update and communicate changes to our planning.

    • Online Learning K-12
      Online learning is an option for all CCSD students. A new Online Elementary program is available for grades K-5. For middle and high school students, Cherry Creek Elevation is available. With both Online Elementary and Cherry Creek Elevation, all instruction will be delivered virtually by a certified CCSD teacher.

    • In-Person Learning

      • Full In-Person Learning (PreK-5)
        Our updated learning plan includes five days a week of in-person learning for students in PreK-5. Our focus was on cohorting or grouping students as the primary strategy to limit spread of the virus with physical distancing implemented to the greatest extent possible within the plan.
        > Learn more.

      • Hybrid Learning (6-12)
        This plan was developed to primarily adhere to physical distancing requirements, and therefore the student body will be split in to two cohorts with half of students attending at one time.
        > Learn more.

      • Remote Learning
        If In-Person learning must switch to full Remote learning at any point during the year, the instruction will be a mixture of synchronous (students learning online together at the same time) and asynchronous.
        > Learn more.

    • Post COVID-19
      Based on public health restrictions and Colorado Department of Education requirements, operating school in a typical manner is not currently an option. We maintain all plans to implement a typical school year if requirements change.
