Staff participated in professional learning across CUSD campuses today. It's so good to be back! We can’t wait to see students tomorrow, rain or shine. In inclement weather, as always, please exercise caution when driving or walking near school zones. Leaving home a few minutes early can help offset traffic delays and ensure everyone gets safely to and from school.
