Since CCPS was on Spring Break this week, our second week of closure will be next week. CCPS will be CLOSED to all students Monday, March 16th through Friday, March 20th. Please click here to see a chart provided by the Florida Department of Education regarding school closure dates for all counties.

CCPS employees will receive further guidance regarding reporting to work in a separate communication tomorrow, Saturday, March 14th.

This school closure includes ALL:

  • CCPS sites

  • before and after-school programs held at CCPS sites

  • extracurricular activities, including athletic practices and competitions, will be canceled
