CCSD Plan for Reopening Schools in January

The phase-in plan for reopening schools in January allows time to see if there is a surge in COVID cases from the winter holidays that would impact our ability to operate. It also allows for several days of student and staff COVID testing to identify potential asymptomatic cases. Our hope is that conditions will allow us to begin the second semester as follows:


  • Monday, January 4 – Furlough day for all staff, no school for students
  • Tuesday, January 5 – Teacher work day, no school for students
  • Wednesday, January 6 – Remote learning day for all students
  • Thursday, January 7 – Remote learning day for all students
  • Friday, January 8 – Remote learning day for all students
  • Monday, January 11 – Elementary students return to full in-person learning.


Parents and guardians will receive additional and specific information from CCSD Superintendent Dr. Scott Siegfried no later than January 4, 2021.

From the Clinic

Starting on Monday, November 30, the CCSD Health and Mental Health Line will be available to in-district families between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, during the district-wide school closure. Families can call 720-554-HLTH (4584) to speak with a Cherry Creek Schools registered nurse or mental health professional. They can help provide general information regarding healthcare and mental health referrals, national and local COVID-19 guidance, as well as information about Safe2Tell, Arapahoe County Department of Human Services concerns and CCSD's free breakfast and lunch distribution.


If you call the CCSD Health and Mental Health Line outside of the hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, you can leave a message, and someone will return your call the next business day. However, if your need is urgent, please call 911 or your own healthcare provider.
