CIS Weekly Update

#13: November 15-19

PRINCIPAL MESSAGE

This week is our Virtual Food Drive. Today we collected $415.37 and students enjoyed Mismatch Monday/Crazy Hair Day. We have a long way to go to reach our goal but we still have time. Our Student Council is working to collect the money each day. THANK YOU for supporting our local Salvation Army with purchasing food for families in need. Tomorrow is Sports Day.


On Friday, the WHS Jazz Band is coming to perform for our students. We will have 5th grade go first followed by 6th grade. The Jazz Band will perform for about an hour (30 min for each group).


Congratulations to our October Students of the Month. We are celebrating all of them this week on our morning announcements. Please see below for the full list of students of the month for October.


Have a WONDERFUL week!!

VIRTUAL FOOD DRIVE

This week we have our virtual food drive! Like last school year, we will collect dollar bills (preferred over change) for our food drive. Every dollar is equal to three food items. Our building goal will be $5,000. Last year we collect over $6,000 so I think we can do it! There will also be other prizes the top classes. Let the competitions begin!


All of the money will be donated to the Salvation Army so they can purchase food from the local food bank. This impacts our community members and is a great way to give back. Students are invited to bring money in and participate in our spirit days.



Monday: Mismatch Monday/ crazy hair day

Tuesday: Sports Day

Wednesday: Pajama Day

Thursday: Twins Day (group day)

Friday: Color Wars: 5th grade white, 6th Grade Red

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!

TikTok CHALLENGES

Some TikTok users have devised a monthly list that includes various pranks or “challenges” to take place at school. 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!

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.
