Fostering the growth of confident, compassionate thinkers who engage the world through Jewish values.
When the COVID-19 pandemic forced schools to close March 2020, the community was scattered for what we thought would be a two-week hiatus. CESJDS quickly pivoted to a virtual platform and launched a distance learning program. As the closures continued, we refined virtual learning to meet the needs of all of our learners. The School's events, signature programs, and other gatherings were moved to a virtual platform as well.
Below are excerpts from a Wall of Gratitude that was created during the Spring 2020 closure.
I am grateful for how thoughtfully and intentionally the School has approached the entire situation of distance learning. I believe you have an impossible task of trying to meet the varying needs of everyone (teachers, parents, students, families) in a very stressful and scary climate and I think you have done an excellent job.

Thank you for the information and updates you continue to share with us and the kids and for the thoughtfulness that has gone into creating their ever-evolving distance learning program. I know this has certainly not been easy or simple, but we think you and your team have done a great job.
Lower and Middle School Parent
Thank you for your time and effort. You brought us all together in this time of worry and isolation. You created a family.
