On March 25, 2020, Minnesota Governor Tim Walz announced that schools across the state will remain closed until at least May 4, 2020 as a part of the state’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Spring break will continue as planned.  The main office will be closed.

Beginning Monday, April 6, 2020 CRCS will begin implementing the school’s Distance Learning Plan.  Click HERE to access the plan .  Students will need to pick up learning materials on Monday, April 6th from 10 AM – 1 PM at the Grade 3/4 classroom doorway.

Students and parents can pick up meals (breakfast and lunch) Monday – Friday from 10 AM – 1 PM.  We will contact students that take the bus to determine drop off times for food.  Food will not be available during the school’s spring break.

As the fifth charter school in Minnesota, the United States, and the World, Cedar Riverside Community School opened its doors in the fall of 1993. We are celebrating our 26th year of continuous operation! Cedar Riverside Community School is a tuition-free charter PreK- Grade 8 school serving approximately 180 students.

Our primary goal is to work in partnership with families from the Cedar Riverside neighborhood (and the surrounding communities) who wish to participate as full partners in the education of their children in a rigorous educational environment that fosters student success. Cedar Riverside Community School ensures academic success through rigorous curriculum standards and specialized support for English Language Learners – all while setting high expectations for students.

Cedar Riverside Community School establishes strong skills in math, reading, literature, writing, science, physical education, art & technology – all of the essential areas of learning. We will also implement a strong character education program to ensure students develop exceptional leadership skills and are well rounded in all areas, social and academic, and prepared for high school and beyond. Class sizes are small to accommodate personalized learning.
