Video Tutorials for getting your iPad Set-Up


iPad Distribution

For those that picked up a school device I appreciate your cooperation in following the guidelines we had set forth. If you are experiencing technical difficulties with your child's iPad please contact our district's help desk at the email below. They will be able to provide assistance in walking you through how to solve the issue.

Help Desk - ccsdhelpdesk@cd-csd.org

Please be on the lookout later this month for additional information regarding iPad turn in as well as our building's plan for getting student belongings returned.

Spring Pictures Update

  • Parents can call our National Call Center at 800-736-4753 and request the access code to view their child’s portrait online at mylifetouch.com, where they can place an order. Parents can provide the Portrait ID for their child’s school to make it easier to find their student.

    • Ekstrand Portrait ID- BN319047Q0

  • If you are receiving emails from Lifetouch and have not yet received the package, we are NOT able to turn the emails off. (I am sorry!) Good news is the parent can use this email to view the image and/or order pictures. When you go online, an option will be given to “pay for pictures” or “order more pictures.” You should select “order more” which will allow them to place an order to be sent to their home.

Ekstrand Yearbook

Ekstrand will be creating a yearbook for this year. If you had ordered one during registration you are set, however if you still would like one you can log into your parent portal in Infinite Campus and submit payment for one. Please click on the link below for further instructions on how to order one. We anticipate the distribution of Ekstrand Yearbooks being delayed this year. I will be in communication when they are completed and ready to be delivered.
