COMMUNICATION WITH FAMILIES

WEEKLY NEWSLETTER

We send a weekly email called This Week at Capital City to families on Mondays with campus and school-level information. Families also receive a text message with a link to the email. Stay connected by reading this newsletter weekly. 

If you do not receive This Week at Capital City or need to update your email address, please contact families@ccpcs.org.

VIRTUAL TOWNHALLS AND COFFEE CHATS

We regularly host Townhalls and Coffee Chats to share updates with families, receive feedback, and answer questions. For all upcoming events, visit our website calendar. Listen to recordings below.

FREE MEALS DISTRIBUTION

During distance learning, Capital City will continue to provide students with meals. Families can pick up a box of five breakfasts and five lunches every Monday from 10am - 2pm (or as long as supplies last) from our cafeteria's parking lot entrance.

  • All children under the age of 18 can receive free meals on Mondays. 
  • The child(ren) do not need to be present to pick up the meals and do not need to be enrolled at Capital City.

FAMILIES IN NEED 

As the pandemic continues, the needs of our families are likely to only grow. Make a donation to our Families in Need Fund, to help us continue to:

  • Connect families to community resources
  • Deliver meals and cleaning supplies
  • Provide monetary donations to help families with basic expenses

Please consider supporting your fellow families during these challenging times. Donate here.

MEDIA RELEASES

We take seriously our responsibility to protect student privacy. During distance learning, live classes will be recorded and made available for absent students and for families to support learning at home. They will not be shared publicly. Similar to previous years, we will only publicly share images of students with media releases.

If you have questions about our media release policy or would like to discuss your child's media status during distance learning, please contact development@ccpcs.org.
