To Our CPA District Community

The Board of Directors of CPA join me in this special "thank you" to the CPA Administration, Teachers, Support Staff (service workers, assistants, technicians) and all others, including our Students and Parents for your much needed and valued cooperation during this very critical and unprecedented time in our country and particularly our school history. Without your efforts, consideration and cooperation the duties we, as members of the Board are responsible to deliver to you, would have been an impossible task. Our heartfelt 'THANK YOU'...continue safety practices and care for your fellow citizens by wearing your mask, washing your hands, and staying at home when it's not necessary to go out.

Stay Safe,

Barbara A. Wynder, President
Chandler Park Academy Board of Directors
