With much regret, but in the interest of student, staff, and community safety during increasingly anxious times in our region, we are issuing a cease and desist order for all CUSD Summer co and extra-curricular activities, effective immediately. We realize it is important to engage our students in healthy activities, yet safety is our paramount priority and we need to do all we can to keep our community members, including our students, families, and staff, as safe as possible.
We plan to send additional information out soon containing the CIF and NSCIF guidelines for Fall athletics. We sincerely appreciate all everyone has done to provide activities for our students and we hope we will be able to return to play soon.

Per Superintendent Staley, we are extending the suspension of all athletic and co-curricular activities through the remainder of the school year, and our facilities remain closed to co-curricular and extra-curricular events until further notice. Obviously we are saddened by the effects upon the performers, artists, athletes, community members and any others affected by this decision. We know many have been preparing for their Spring activities for a long time and this decision was not made lightly.
We will notify everyone immediately upon hearing when we can re-open our facilities. As always, thank you for your patience as we have processed this decision. I sincerely appreciate everyone’s willingness to abide by these decisions so far, and I know we will come out of this stronger and better prepared for future challenges.
