School Supply Lists

2020-2021 School Supply List

CCSD21 families,

As we begin the 2020-2021 school year at a distance, we ask CCSD21 students to have certain common supplies on hand at home to engage in learning. You may, in fact, have these items readily available already. The list below applies to students at all grade levels, both in the Distance Learning Academy and assigned to distance learning through their home/neighborhood school.

  • Pencils
  • Eraser
  • Black pens
  • Ruler
  • Crayons (24-48 count)
  • Colored pencils
  • Markers (set)
  • Scissors
  • Glue or Glue stick
  • Post its (3 in. x 3 in.)
  • Folder
  • Spiral-bound notebook, wide ruled

For those students who will return in person on October 5 (or when conditions allow), CCSD21 will provide a set of school supplies. Our intention is to limit as much back-and-forth of supplies as possible. Students will therefore have a “home set” of supplies provided by the family at the beginning of the year and an “in school set” that the District will provide later this fall.

A set of supplies will also be issued to students in the Distance Learning Academy to supplement what families provide to start the school year. Distribution will take place later this fall.

Thank you.
