CIS Weekly Update

#18: January 3-7


WELCOME BACK! We are excited for the new year and the new quarter. Hopefully you and your family enjoyed the holidays.

Report cards will be coming home on Friday. Students work diligently before winter break to finish up the 2nd quarter. Please continue to encourage your son/daughter to log in to Progress Book on a regular basis to know how they are doing. There is no reason for them to be surprised when report cards come home.

Please remember to keep your child home if he or she is sick. This will us to keep the spread of sickness down and hopefully keep more students in school. If you need a COVID test for your student then please reach out. We have a supply of them at the school.

We have a five day week followed by two four day weeks. Students have no school on January 14 & 17. January 14 is a professional development day and January 17 is MLK Jr. Day.

Have GREAT Week!

Student Tardy Procedures & Guidelines

As a reminder, our school day starts each day at 9:05am. If arriving late, please bring your child to the attendance desk. You can also send a note or call the attendance desk. When a student is tardy to school, he/she will be asked to complete a tardy slip at the attendance desk. After two tardies within a grading period, students will have a consequence for being late to school. Here are the guidelines for tardies.

  • The first offense each grading period will be excused.
  • The second occurrence will result in a letter sent home.
  • Upon reaching the third and fourth tardy, a 30-minute after-school Thursday detention could be issued.
  • For the fifth and sixth tardy, a 60-minute after-school Thursday detention could be issued.
  • Once a student reaches his/her seventh tardy, a 120-minute, after-school Thursday detention could be issued.
  • Each grading period begins a new cycle.

Change in COVID-19 Isolation and Quarantine Guidelines

The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) released a statement that indicated they have adopted the new CDC guidance on isolation and quarantine; the Medina County Health Department notified us they have adopted the new guidance as well. The following is taken from the ODH press release:

"The Ohio Department of Health has released a flow chart based on the CDC’s updated guidance following an exposure to someone with COVID-19. Regardless of vaccination status or symptoms, anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 must isolate for at least 5 days. However, if symptoms are improving, isolation may end on the sixth day following either symptom onset or a positive COVID-19 test if the person consistently wears a mask for the next five days. Detailed quarantine and isolation guidance are available in the flow chart. The Ohio Department of Health has also updated K-12 school quarantine guidance including “mask to stay” and “test to play” timelines accordingly."

Our school district will follow the new guidance. While the new guidance is still being worked through, it appears that the only change to the guidelines we have been following is to the length of time someone must remain in isolation or quarantine.

Transportation Changes

Important Transportation Changes beginning January 3, 2022

Due to ongoing staffing shortages, including the recent retirement of a bus driver, we have made the decision to consolidate bus routes. If your student rides high school/middle school buses 1, 34, 39, 48 or 49 please check busing information on E-link. If your student rides elementary/CIS buses 1, 39, 43 or 48 please check busing information on E-link. Some stop times have changed by up to 30 minutes.

If you need assistance with routing or bus stop information please use E-link. You can also email the Transportation Supervisor, Jessy Widmer, at
