CIS News September 14, 2020

So Far, So Good!

We've had a great start so far! The kids are adjusting to the changes and they continue to do a great job with our new protocols and procedures.

Thank you for working with your student and helping to reinforce our new changes. We appreciate your support!

NWEA Testing

NWEA testing will begin next week for 5th graders on Tuesday and Thursday. Please encourage your student(s) to get plenty of rest and encourage them to decrease screen time on the evenings prior to the test. There are not study materials available for the test, but you can encourage your student(s) to practice their math facts, practice IXL Math, and read each night for at least 20 minutes.

Coloma PTO

The PTO is a great group of parents that work with our teachers to plan a successful year for our kids. Right now with the current restrictions in place, planning is on hold. The PTO will hold a meeting soon to inform parents and gather ideas. We look forward to working with our parents!!!

Food Service Update

All students will be provided with 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches that they can take home with them each Friday. Please remember that these meals will include milk, so they will need to be refrigerated right away.

Thank you Chartwells for providing this wonderful program for all CCS students!

Tutoring Available Through The Coloma Public Library

Tutoring through is free to all Coloma Public Lilbrary card holders. You can go to the Library's website for additional information or call 269-468-3431.

Arrival To School/Student Drop-Off

Students will be allowed into the building at 7:50am each day. Please do not drop your student off early. We will not have supervision. If your child is a car rider, please drop them off in the parking lot across from the CIS building. They will wait for the crossing guard to signal them to cross the street, then they will wait for a staff member to allow them into the building.

Please do not walk your child up to the building. We will have staff to help direct them to their designated locations in the building.

After School

Students must have transportation immediately following dismissal each day. Students will not be allowed to remain in the building after school hours. We will not be holding our After School Program for the 2020-21 school year.

Parking Lot Guidelines

The parking lot can get confusing after school, but if you follow the guidelines, it can go a lot smoother. Please share these guidelines with anyone who will be picking your child up from school.

Upcoming Dates
