CICS Family Update - April 16, 2020

Written by Chicago International Charter School

Dear CICS families, 

As we settle into our fourth week of remote learning, my hope is that you have found a routine that works for your family. I recognize that every family’s needs and circumstances are different, but the CICS team across our 14 campuses is here to support our students. While we may not be together in person for a while, the CICS family remains strong and we will be here for each other throughout these trying times. Please do not hesitate to reach out for support — academically or otherwise. Together, we will be stronger on the other end of the current crisis. 

CICS Meal Pickup Moving to Monday, Wednesday, Friday Next Week

Beginning Monday, April 20th, CICS drive-through meal pickup will change from daily availability to Monday, Wednesday and Friday at all CICS elementary schools. Pickup times will remain 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. We will continue to offer an expanded menu, including warm-at-home options and multiple days of meals will be provided for greater flexibility. Meals can also be picked up at most CPS schools from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. daily. If you are unable to travel to these sites, CPS also offers home delivery for families.
