Community Consolidated School District 21
Summer Opportunities

May 24, 2019

Dear CCSD21 parents,

As you know, this summer will be longer than normal to accommodate the large amount of construction we’re undergoing to bring air conditioning, secure entrances, and more to CCSD21. Outlined below are a variety of Summer Bridge opportunities offered by CCSD21 and our community partners to engage your children during the later weeks of August -- "bridging" the gap between the traditional start of school and the delayed start of the 2019-2020 school year. Minimum and maximum enrollment limits may exist and vary between programs. Please click the appropriate link for more information or to register.

In addition, our Seamless Summer lunch program is back this year and bigger than ever before! Children under age 18 can receive a free, daily sack lunch throughout the majority of the summer. This year's program features expanded locations throughout our community -- see below for more details!

Enjoy the remaining days of the school year and have a safe, relaxing summer!
