Wednesday, December 21 - Tuesday, January 3 WINTER BREAK

We will no longer dismiss students after 3:00 p.m. The office is very congested at the end of the day and it is difficult to call students to the office during dismissal announcements. Additionally, if you need to change transportation arrangements for the afternoon, please make your arrangements with your child before he or she leaves for school. Messages regarding a change in transportation home that are received after 2:30 p.m. may not be delivered to your child due to the business at the end of the school day. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but this policy will be enforced daily. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.


For 5th grade families (only CCS 5th graders), please see the flyer below for details on how to take advantage of this special offer!
