We all want to help each other in times of trouble.


CILC and its wonderful content providers have come together to provide core curriculum every day of the week for homebound students in grades K–6th. We are offering, free of charge, interactive, live-streamed programs daily Monday to Friday. The programs are delivered by our highly professional content providers.

Please register, by Grade Level, by clicking on the button below each section. Once you have registered you will receive an email from Zoom with connection information in it. You also will get a reminder 24 hours before the event and 1 hour before the event.

ATTENTION EDUCATORS: It is important for each student to be registered by their parent rather than you. Each sign up generates a unique link to join the program and sharing links can cause issues.

Check our YouTube Channel for recordings of the programs you missed!
