Welcome Back!

I hope that everyone enjoyed a safe and restful Winter Break. CIS is ready to kick off the start of 2nd semester on Monday, January 4th.


As we return to school it will be important that you are checking your child's symptoms each and every day so that we can continue with our face to face education. A link for a symptom checker is available below.

Conduct Daily Health Screenings

In accordance with Board of Education policies, our Return to Learn plans and direction from local, state and federal health officials, if your student has any of the following symptoms, you must keep them home from school!


  • temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher
  • sore throat
  • an uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing
  • the onset of a severe headache
  • diarrhea and/or vomiting
  • unusual belly pain
  • new loss of taste or smell


IMPORTANT: Based on Board policies and written guidance from local, state and federal health officials, in order for your child to return to school after experiencing one or more of the above symptoms a parent/guardian must provide a negative COVID-19 test result or a doctor’s note releasing the student to attend school. If you do not provide a negative COVID-19 test result or doctor’s note, then your student will be excluded from Coloma Community Schools for ten (10) days from the first day they had symptoms. They must also be fever free for 24 hours and/or their symptoms have improved after the ten (10) day exclusion period before they can return.

Outdoor Recess

As the weather gets colder, please remember that we still have outdoor recess. Students should come to school prepared with warmer clothing and winter gear. We don't want anyone to be cold when they are outside getting some fresh air!

Birthday Treats

We love to celebrate our students' birthdays and we love treats! Please only bring in treats that are store bought and individually wrapped. Store bought cupcakes and cookies are awesome! But, please make sure they are individually wrapped. We are seeing some treats come into the building that are store bought, but NOT individually wrapped.

Please Wash Your Masks!

Mask Reminder

We issued each child 2 masks on their first day of school this year. We have also provided additional masks as needed both cloth and paper. It is important that your child is bringing a mask every day just like their usual school supplies.
Cold and Flu Season

The cold and flu season is almost here! Please keep your student(s) home if they are not feeling well. The attached article gives some guidance on how to prevent the spread of germs. Please take a minute to read it.
