JOIN US FOR OUR VIRTUAL SUMMER OF LEARNING PROGRAM!

Dear CFAUSD Families,


We can all agree that this has been quite a school year! Thank you for all of your efforts in helping your child(ren) continue learning through virtual instruction. We appreciate you and our partnership with you!


As we all continue to work through our current reality, we know that you care as much as we do about keeping your child(ren) engaged in continued learning opportunities throughout the summer.


Unfortunately, many of the programs that are usually available to your child(ren) in our community have been cancelled. Although we are unable to provide on campus programming, we are happy to announce that we will be continuing summer learning throughout the month of June!


This site contains valuable information regarding our modified, virtual "Summer of Learning" program for elementary, middle, and high school students. Please take a moment to read through this guide to learn important information that will help you in planning extended learning opportunities for your child(ren).
