Principals Message

Report Card conferences will take place next week from November 18-November 22. Each of those days is a minimum day with school running from 8:20-11:50 each day (ALL K-5). TK continues on regular schedule. We look forward to meeting and working with you to review student progress and to make plans for the remaining two trimesters! If you are unable to make the conference, please reach out to the teacher to find an alternative.

Spirit Day, 11/18-11/22

Our student leadership group has organized a spirit week for next week. Check out the days below:



Monday Multiples day - cause twins are great but why stop there?


Tuesday: Dress like a parent day or wear formal wear (tie/collared shirt or dress up dress)


Wednesday: Crazy/Wacky Wednesday --always a student fave!


Thursday: Teacher/Student/Principal Swap - kids dress up like teachers/principal and adults dress up like their kids


Friday: Sports and cookies day - Students dress up in their favorite sports/team wear. Student Leadership will be passing out pre-packaged cookies!

Attendance Challenge 2019-2020

Come to school, every single day that you can. As I read report cards, many students who of our students who are struggling to meet standards have missed large chunks of school. Currently, we have 39 students who have missed at least 10% of the school year. Let's get our rate up and strive for success.

Air Quality Guidelines

I am leaving this here. We don't anticipate any poor air quality or emergency situations this week but wanted to have the information available.


Check the "Current Conditions" at Air Now (https://goo.gl/cDPN8J). Our guidelines for school and school activities:


  • If we are in Green/Yellow - Outdoor activities as normal
  • If we are in Orange - Outdoor activities can happen, but should be limited. Keep a close eye on students who may fall in the "sensitive group" and provide them with alternative, inside activities. We are OK to have lunch outside, but PE should be conducted inside.
  • If we are in Red - We are OK to have activities/athletics, but only inside. Lunch/recess should take place indoors. No outside activities (including practice for athletics) should be taking place.
  • If you are in the Purple/Maroon - Students should remain indoors and District is contacted to discuss additional supports.

Cordelia Public Library--Did you know!

All Cordelia Hills students are automatically enrolled as members of the Solano County Library system. To access materials and online-resources, they use the following log-in credentials:



FSU and student ID (6 digit perm ID). Example: FSU123456

Last name: MUST BE ALL CAPS

Phone number: Do not use a phone #. Actually put the month and day of bday. So October 24 is 1024



They can use the same information to access up to 3 print materials at the library.

QUAD Stair Policy

Old Policy: Students should descend quad staircases using the side staircases (the ones with two railings).


New Policy: Students should descend quad staircases using any staircase with a railing. Please avoid using the large staircases when coming down. It isn't safe.

Free Breakfast for ALL students, 2019-2020

Starting this year, breakfast is free for all students (free, reduced, and paid accounts).


The Cover Letter in English and Spanish is linked here! Breakfast at CHE starts at approximately 7:50.


Please note that students reporting to breakfast must remain in the MPR for the entirety of the period before school. We ask that they avoid walking about campus and report directly to the breakfast.
