We have made the decision at CGIS to provide information below weekly so each family can know our school wide status and can make the best informed decisions for your children/students as we move through the school year. It is our hope to be transparent with the information we have but at the same time, prioritize our students' need to be educated, connect with one another and support their social and emotional needs as well as depend upon health care providers for health care decisions of staff and students. For more information, refer to MCS District COVID update at the following link:

Here is the schoolwide information specific to CGIS for this week:

Clusters identified (two or more students or staff members in one class) and communicated this week- 0

We are grateful for your support and will certainly be responsive and include more information if there are identified clusters or upticks in our cases at CGIS.

Dr. Best's Launch into the weekend

Dear CGIS Families,

Our students are shining brightly and we are getting into the groove of our new school year together. Let's continue to build our connectedness this year. Continue to encourage your children/our students to share their needs and any issues that might occur with our staff. We want to know.

Our theme this year is "shine" and I'm providing Shine Challenges to staff and students each week. Next week's shine challenge for you, as parents and guardians, to engage with us through our Show Up Nights next week. Our grade level teams will be sending out more specific communications for each event. We are excited about the opportunity to host our students and parents to learn expectations and strengthen our partnership.

I've attached the administrative presentations from this week's Show Up Nights to this newsletter as a convenience for families.

Always grateful for your partnership,

Dr. Best
