Back-to-school information #
- Helpful registration video: Through Minutes With Merv, #oneCCPS families can get fast facts for a strong start to the school year. Today’s video — https://youtu.be/hYl6CYgMawc — focuses on registering students who have not previously attended Chesterfield County Public Schools. Go to bit.ly/CCPSreg for helpful links, including find-my-school widget, school supply lists and transportation details.
- Year-round schools: Monday was the first day of school for Bellwood and Falling Creek elementaries, our two year-round schools. Watch this video and enjoy these images to see what a happy day it was!
- All other schools: Aug. 22 is the first day of the 2022-23 school year for all other schools in Chesterfield County, but some students will not start until Aug. 23 or Aug. 24. Get all the details about school calendars at bit.ly/CCPScals so you know which date your child heads to class.
Free and reduced-price meals reminder: During the pandemic, the federal government issued a waiver allowing all children to eat for free at school. This meant the application for free or reduced-price meals was not required during this time. However, the federal waiver expired, and families must now complete an application to receive free or reduced-price meals during the 2022-23 school year. All others will pay for meals as they did before the pandemic. Complete the free or reduced price meal application for the 2022-23 school year here in English or here in Spanish. If you need a paper form, contact [email protected]. Note: Children who attend schools that qualify for the Community Eligibility Provision will receive free meals at school during the 2022-23 school year and do not need to complete a free or reduced price meal application.
