CIS Weekly Update

#10: October 25-29


This Friday will be our character dress up/costume day. We encourage students to participate but there are some restrictions (see below) regarding the costumes. Students will also need to wear their costumes for the duration of the school day. We look forward to seeing the many creative costumes!

Election Day is coming up on Tuesday, November 2. Information regarding the community levy for the schools can be found here. We encourage everyone to get out and vote.

Veterans Day is coming up in a couple of weeks. Unfortunately we won't have guests in our building for the celebration. However, we will be sharing links with our families so they can view the choir, band and other veterans day activities. We will send them out on Thursday, November 11.

Have a FANTASTIC week!!

Starting this week, students will have the opportunity to create a Google Slide to celebrate a veteran. Mr. Luchka, technology teacher, will be working with students on this. It is not a requirement but all students who want to participate will need to upload a photo or photos into Google Drive. Students will need to also know the veteran's name, branch of service and any other pertinent information. Here is a video on how students can add pictures to Google Drive.


CIS is a school-wide Title I building. Therefore, Title I services will be supporting interventions primarily for RtI students in 5th or 6th grade. If you are unfamiliar with your child’s RtI intervention plan, please contact us for details.

The Title I schedule will be very flexible and students will be moving in and out of Title I services, depending on personal growth and/or scheduling. If your child continues on an RtI goal, be assured that interventions will be given for that goal either by your child’s teaching team, Title I or a combination of both. We are all working together to help your child succeed!

Please be aware that your child will be pulled during I/E (Intervention/Enrichment) for Title I, which is non-instructional time (unless you have been informed otherwise). The Title I tutoring is in addition to the regular classroom instruction and support.

Please let us know if you have any questions, comments or concerns. Our email addresses are listed below or you can call us at CIS: 330-335-1480.

We would appreciate it if you could complete the following Google form, within the next week, as it will help us in getting to know your child. It can be accessed at: If you prefer a paper copy of this form, please email us and we will send it home with your child. If your child is working with more than one Title I teacher, you do not need to complete the form twice.

Character Dress Up/ Costume Day- Friday, October 29

Students are invited to dress up on Friday, October 29! Students can choose to be creative and dress up as their favorite book character or wear a costume from home. Students from each class, who dress up as a book character, could be nominated for contest at lunch. During lunch, students will get to vote on the most creative book character costume.

We ask that students not wear masks, bring accessories, wear an inflatable costume or use face paint for the costume day. Students who have questions about their costume should check with their teacher.

We hope this brings some joy on Friday, October 29 and look forward to seeing our students in their costumes!

Dress For The Weather

Fall has arrived and so has the inconsistent weather. Some days are warm and some days are much cooler. It is important for our students to pay attention to the weather so they are dressed appropriately. This will be more important as the temperatures drop in the coming weeks. Thank you for your help!


Please be sure to call Mrs. Lanham, our attendance clerk, prior to 2:45pm with any dismissal changes. We often have over 30 change of plans and it takes time to communicate with students and teachers. Sending an email isn't recommended. We prefer you call 330-335-1481. Thank You!


The Ohio School Safety Center (OSSC) has learned of a new October social media challenge that impacts Ohio schools and, specifically, staff and educators. Some TikTok users have devised a monthly list that includes various pranks or “challenges” to take place at school. For example, in recent weeks, there have been incidents of school vandalism as part of the "devious lick" challenge. The challenge encourages students to slap a teacher or staff member and run before being caught committing the assault. The incident must be also be filmed or the challenge does not “count.”

Unfortunately there are TikTok challenges for other months. I've attached a picture of a list of other possible TikTok challenges. If these challenges make their way into our school then we will be forced to hold students accountable for their actions that break our school code of conduct. Please talk to your child(ren) if you feel it is necessary. THANK YOU!


Effective October 1, the following change will be made to the quarantine guidelines followed by schools in Medina County (the rest of the flow chart remains unchanged):

If a student meets the criteria of a close contact from exposure in a school setting and the student is not fully vaccinated or was not wearing a face covering during the period of exposure, the student will be permitted to stay in school if the student wears a face covering during the quarantine period (provided the student continues to be symptom free). This change only impacts the ability of a student to attend school, it does not apply to extracurricular activities or other situations that are not school-related.
