Hello CNUSD Familes,
Welcome to Fall! The cool breeze, shorter days, and the changing of the leaves makes this truly my favorite time of year. Please enjoy this month's newsletter that highlights many strategies and learning opportunities for our families as well as new information on supports offered to our homeless students. Stay encouraged and happy reading.
