CIS Weekly Update

#17: December 13-17

PRINCIPAL MESSAGE

This is our final week of the second quarter. It is also the last week before winter break. Students are working hard to finish up any last minute assignments. We encourage students and families to check ProgressBook. There should be few surprises when report cards come home on Friday, January 7.


Wednesday we have our 5th & 6th grade band concerts. Students have been working hard and we are excited to see their progress on display. Please know that this is the first time the 5th & 6th grade have performed for families. Our 5th grade performance is at 6:30pm and 6th grade performance is at 7:30pm.


Students are encouraged to wear ugly sweaters or pajamas on Friday. They will also get to watch the Nutcracker performance and have a movie party. It should be a fun day before we head into winter break.


Have GREAT Week and Happy Holidays!


Brandon Cobb, Principal

Congratulations to our Bear Paw Winners!

LOST AND FOUND

We are already accumulating many coats and sweatshirts in our lost and found. If you are missing any items, please remind your student to check the lost and found this week.

OUTDOOR RECESS - DRESS FOR THE WEATHER

Today felt like Winter! We go outside each day for recess unless it is raining or the temperature is 15 degrees or below. 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!

END-OF-DAY CHANGES

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!

COVID-19 & ILLNESS AT CIS

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.


On October 26th, new guidelines were made available regarding Extracurricular Activities. All other guidelines remain the same. You may click on the link to find the information sheet distributed by the Ohio Department of Health here.
