February 12, 2020 is Crossing Guard Appreciation Day! Safe Routes to School (SRTS) encourages all Chesapeake Public Schools to celebrate Crossing Guard Appreciation Day!
Make It Count, Chesapeake! The 2020 U.S. Census is coming this spring and YOUR response matters. For every person not counted in the Census, an estimated $20,000 in federal funding is lost every ten years. This means less money for schools, parks, childcare, and roads in Chesapeake.
Getting a complete and accurate count in 2020 requires everyone’s help. Check your mail in March for a letter from the U.S. Census Bureau and be sure to do your part. The Census can be completed online, by mail, or by phone. For more information visit 2020census.gov.

Chesapeake Public Schools is happy to announce the availability of Office 365 Pro Plus at no charge to all Chesapeake Public School (CPS) students for use on personal computer equipment. The licensing allows the installation of the software on up to five compatible PC and/or MAC computers. In addition, a simplified version of the software may be installed on up to five tablet/mobile devices. The license will remain active as long as the division maintains this agreement and as long as the individual is a CPS student. Once a student withdrawals from the division, they are no longer legally licensed to use the software.
