Roadmap to Reopening: CPS New Start Date & CPDA Changes Regarding Sports/Activities

Jul 14, 2020

The new official start date for the 2020-2021 school year (Pre-K-12) for Cabot Public Schools is Monday, August 24th. 

The new school calendar will be released after it is approved by the Cabot School Board at the July 21st meeting. You'll recall, Governor Asa Hutchinson directed schools to move the start date from August 13th to the week of August 24th.

This means Cabot Public Schools, the Cabot Panther Digital Academy, and ACE and ACE North will all begin on Monday, August 24th. 

We also have some good news regarding the Cabot Panther Digital Academy. Effective immediately, CPDA students may now participate in AAA sports and activities. For a complete list, click HERE.
