The staff of CES would like to wish each member of our Bears Family a very Happy Thanksgiving. Like everything else during this pandemic, this holiday season may be filled with tough choices and changes for families. We simply want to remind you of the importance of social distancing through the holidays to protect your family and yourself. Please rely on the 3Ws of wearing your mask, waiting in line 6 feet apart and washing your hands often and well. We look forward to seeing our students as they return on November 30. As we return, it will be imperative that if your child is experiencing any flu-like symptoms such as congestion, sore throat, cough, or fever – you keep them at home. They can join in any lesson remotely and still be counted present. If they are unable to join the remote lesson, they can complete their work for that day and be counted present as well. We must all work together to ensure the health and well-being of our students, families and staff. Again, Happy Thanksgiving and we are so grateful to be part of an amazing school family.

Picture Day will be on Thursday, November 5 and there will be a makeup day on Tuesday, November 10. The students that are remote and the A day sixth graders will have their pictures done on Tuesday, November 10. This year it was suggested that we have parents pre-order the pictures. The order forms will be going home with the students today. You can also purchase them after picture day but we can't guarantee them by a certain date and there may be additional shipping fees. The link below will allow parents to sign up to receive updates via email regarding their child's school portraits. These updates include promotions, additional deals, and the ability to order more pictures at a later time.

We know Halloween is going to be a little different this school year. We are going to invite students to wear school appropriate costumes to school on Friday, October 30. No costume mask or props will be allowed. Costumes need to reflect positive themes. Please remember our school has very young children in some grades, and we do not want to scare anyone.
On Monday, October 26, we will begin our Plan A for Pre-K - 5th grade. We will have new bus routes and times. We have been calling parents with these new times. If you have not heard from us, please call the school. We still want car riders to be dropped off at the front of the school. No one can be dropped off before 7:35. Please have patience, we will have more students and we still will be doing temperature checks. With more students, it will take more time. Bus riders will still have their temperature checked as they get on the bus. At school we will be following the same health and safety procedures that we followed during Plan B.
