We invite parents of rising kindergartners to join us as we share information to help you get your child ready for kindergarten! The webinar will be held Tuesday, May 11th at 6:30 pm. You can register at https://tinyurl.com/CPSKinder2021.
The primary mode of instruction for ALL grade levels for the 2021-2022 school year will be full-time in-person learning; however, we will continue to offer virtual learning opportunities by application only. Families at the elementary and middle school levels who would like to apply for virtual learning will be required to make a full-year commitment to Virtual Virginia.
Families of elementary and middle school students interested in learning more about Virtual Virginia should visit our webpage for details and application links. Families may also view our family webinar presentation to learn more about Virtual Virginia. Please note: applications are due by May 21.
Dr. Cotton presented the instructional plan for the 2021-22 school year at the April 19, 2021 School Board Meeting. While the primary mode of instruction for ALL grade levels will be full-time in-person learning, Chesapeake will continue to offer virtual learning opportunities by application only. Families at the elementary and middle school levels who would like to apply for virtual learning will be required to make a full-year commitment to Virtual Virginia. Applications are now available on our website.
Completed applications should be submitted via email to Ms. Laster at or returned to the school in person. Hard copies of the application are available by request in our main office.
Ms. Laster and Mrs. Nolette showed their support for our military students and families on Purple Up day.
Norah is one of our many military students wearing purple for Purple Up day.
Some of our military students were selected to say the Pledge of Allegiance in honor of their parents’ service in the military.
April is the month of the military child and we are proud to express our support for our military families! Please visit our CPS Military Resources page as well as Military Kids Connect to find resources to support your children.
In order to provide additional instructional planning time for our teachers, seven early released days have been added to the school calendar. This will apply to both Option 1 and 2 students. Dismissal will be two hours earlier on these days. Please visit the CPS Website post on calendar changes for more information. The early dismissal dates are listed below.
Families who selected option 1, the On-Campus Continuum, should review all of the information outlined in the slide deck below. This information includes checklists families should complete now and other important health and safety protocols families should incorporate into their daily school routine.

If your student will not ride a school bus to school, please adhere to this student drop off/pick up plan:
Georgetown Primary School will offer two different types of arrival and dismissal procedures on a daily basis. Chesapeake Public Schools offers free bus transportation for all students who are currently enrolled at Georgetown Primary. If you DO NOT wish to take advantage of this service, you may choose to transport your child to and from school through Kiss & Ride. Please contact your child’s teacher if you wish to utilize the Kiss & Ride service.
KISS & RIDE
Parents who will be dropping off/picking up their child(ren) each day, are asked to utilize the Kiss & Ride procedures. Vehicles will enter through the back parking lot entrance. Parents will circle around to the Kiss & Ride zone where a staff member will open and close your car door to allow your child(ren) to exit the vehicle. GTP staff will then direct your child into the building. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all children coming through Kiss & Ride must wear a face mask, covering their nose and mouth, prior to exiting their vehicle. Unfortunately, GTP staff will not be able to physically assist your child with getting in and out of the vehicle. Parents must provide physical assistance to children when exiting or entering their vehicle, if assistance is needed.
To support our students and their families, the Department of Elementary Teaching and Learning created scheduling guidelines for online learning. Click here to learn more about our online learning daily schedule and expectations.
