CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: APRIL 23, 2020

 Dear Cedarwood Parents,

Governor John Bell Edwards made the decision to close all public schools through the end of the year. For the health and safety of our students and faculty, Cedarwood School will also follow that directive for preschool through 7th grade.

Our teachers will continue to deliver our Distance Learning programs through May 15th and utilize the week of May 18-22 for records and closeout maintenance. Our school’s “Weekly News” will go out next Monday and will include the adjusted May calendar.  The calendar will include the end of the school year events, as well as the necessary adjustments and safety directives.

We know this has been a difficult time for you and all of us.  We miss our students and our families! Through the recent parent surveys sent, important information is being compiled. Thank you for letting us hear from you.  If you did not get a chance to take the survey, please do so at the links below:

Survey for Preschool Parents - https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/N5JJWJF
Survey for K-7th Parents -  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QHFCXX2

We know that once the community opens up and parents go back to work, many of you will need childcare. We anticipate we will be given the clearance to re-open for the start of the summer camp programs, which are scheduled to begin June 1, 2020.  We will confirm that date with you as soon as we know.   

Stay well,
Kathryn LeBlanc 
President
