CBS Religious School Plan for 2021-2022/5782

We are excited to share our plan for next year with you!  In consultation with our parents, teachers, clergy and CBS COVID Medical Task Force we have designed a program that meets the needs of our community.  We will have online-only, hybrid and in-person learning opportunities.  All online-only programs will be designed for and with each family participating.  An important goal of the CBS Religious School is to partner with families to provide a positive, Jewish education and experience.  As your family situation changes during the year please reach out and let us know how we can support you.

Registration is online only and can be completed by logging into your myCBS account.  In August, upon completion of registration, each family will be contacted to select a virtual-only, hybrid or in-person option for each student.  This option can be changed at the end of the first semester (winter break).  Please feel free to contact the school at 847-498-5652 or with any questions or concerns you have.  The detailed schedule is below.
