    Charlottesville City Schools is introducing our new 2022 Summer Opportunities online hub. This page is full of academic and enrichment opportunities for your children which are run by our division, the City of Charlottesville, or program partners in our schools.

    May 2022 News & Highlights

        A Word from Dr. Gurley Dear staff and families – It’s hard to believe that we’re at the end of the year! Our schools’ calendars are filled with spring concerts, field days, and school-wide morning meetings (including one that memorably culminated in a principal-turned-human-ice-cream-sundae). Stepping-up events and the CHS graduation at Ting Pavilion are around the corner. Check your school calendars for dates. Through all the moments of both effort and fun, our students are making the connections that will serve them for a lifetime. As we wrap up this year, I want to take a moment to say thank you. COVID has ...

    Statement from Dr. Gurley and School Board in Response to Shootings in Uvalde, Texas

    With broken hearts, we are writing in response to the senseless gun violence and tragic deaths today at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. Our hearts go out to the students, families, staff, and community members. This message is in many ways a painful repetition of what we have said in response to earlier shootings across our country, including ten days ago at Tops Friendly Market in Buffalo and at schools such as Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida or Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. What Will We Do? Our first priority tonight is to equip you and our own staff ...
