March 17th, 2021 - 4th Marking Period Election Form

Dear CASD families,

Last evening, the administration presented a recommendation to the CASD Board of Directors to return all students (K-12) to in-person instruction 4 days a week (Wednesday remaining virtual), beginning March 29th. The recommendation will be voted on at the March 23 regular board meeting.

In preparation for this change, it is imperative that you choose an instructional option for your student by completing an election form in your student’s sapphire account at the link below. Your “election” will be the official instructional choice for your child(ren) beginning March 29th.

The form also includes a second question regarding next school year to gauge interest in instructional models and is not an official election form.

Please complete the election form by midnight Friday, March 19 and which  can be found here:

We believe the best environment for children to learn is in school, and our teachers, principals, administrators and staff are excited to welcome all students back to in-person instruction. We’ve worked a great deal to ensure students return to a safe environment, following mitigation measures outlined by the PA Department of Health.  As a reminder, here is a video we put together recently showcasing some of the steps we are taking to keep students and staff safe:


Thank you again for your assistance.
