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.  Currently we are remote only since our students come from 10 different school districts.  We are prepared to move into a modified in-person option as soon as our committee feels it is safe and appropriate.  Our committee is comprised of our CBS Medical COVID Task Force, the CBS Clergy, the CBS School Board and the CBS Staff.  Please contact Stacy Ybarra to discuss any concerns or questions.  We do adapt programming to meet family needs.
