The local school districts have closed in response to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Class 101 Cypress will also close the office to keep our students and families healthy.
We tell our students that the plan might change, but the goal does not. To stay focused on the goal, we ask you, the student, the following questions:
Do you want to meet?
Class 101 Cypress will continue to hold college planning meetings remotely. If you have not scheduled your March appointment, please feel to schedule one for next week at the link below.
Are you still deciding what you want to study?
One question we have asked many of you is, “what problems do you want to solve?” As we experience COVID-19, what makes you curious or passionate?
Studying viruses? Caring for the sick? Public Health concerns? Economic impacts? Psychology? Sociology? Supply Chain/ Distribution? Public Relations? Journalism? Politics? Education? Communication? Technology?
During your downtime, spend some time thinking about your future career.
Are you looking to take advantage of the extra downtime?

Are you still deciding on a college?
We will keep our seniors updated on colleges that extend Decision Day (May 1) deadlines for the Class of 2020.
Also, we know that this health crisis has canceled many college visits for our families. Please know that we expect colleges to dismiss or reduce the value of demonstrated interest for the Class of 2021.
Class 101 Cypress prays for the health and safety of our students, their families, and our schools and communities. We look forward to things returning to normal.
