Dear CCUSD Community,

This cancellation is in effect for all CCUSD programs, including the Office of Child Development, K-12 schools, and Culver City Adult School.
*The loss of these 3 instructional days will be made up at a date to be determined later.
Grab-n-Go lunches will be supplied for our students via Curb Side pick-up,
Time: 11:45 am to 1:00 pm at all school sites.
Families: You may pick-up meals for all students at one school site, saving you the time of traveling to different schools, i.e. if you have one student who attends El Marino and another who attends CCMS, please pick-up both lunches at one school site only.
All meals are provided at no cost.
