Dear Community Charter School of Cambridge Families,

In light of recent action by the office of the President in changing federal immigration policies, threatening to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities, and giving Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) unprecedented authority to target undocumented citizens, we felt it was important to share with you how thankful and proud we are to be part of such a vibrant and diverse school community. We want to reassure you that we unequivocally commit to support, protect, and stand by every student, faculty member, and staff member at CCSC; including our immigrant, refugee, undocumented, and Muslim students and families. As a public charter school, we have a moral and a legal obligation to enroll and serve every child who attends our school, without regard to their immigration status, and without fear of discrimination. Our focus will continue to be on providing all students in our schools with the academic and social-emotional guidance and support that will allow them to develop into successful, contributing members of our communities.

Students, please Click Here for your surveys. Your advisor will provide you with an access code.

Students will be taking benchmark exams in each of their core courses Wednesday through Friday, January 18th, 19th, and 20th, and there will be no school for students on the following Monday and Tuesday, January 23rd and 24th. 

Dismissal: Dismissal times will vary, and students will receive personalized schedules the week before benchmark exams begin. Please encourage your student to share his/her schedule with you and have a conversation with him/her about how they plan to prepare for these important tests.

Bus Service: Due to the atypical dismissal times, bus service will not run on the Wednesday (1/18) of benchmark exams. There will be bus service at 11:30am on Thursday (1/19), and Friday (1/20).
