Updates from Cimarron Middle School

Dear Cimarron Family,

Last week our Cimarron staff returned to school. We look forward to welcoming our students next week! Our staff is working hard planning and preparing for a great school year with the new format and structures to keep us safe. This has been a challenging time and we appreciate all of the patience and cooperation with our new guidelines.

Please review the Parent Communication on Reopening Plan for guidelines and note the following items:

Hybrid Schedule 8/17 - 8/21- (20% of students each day)

  • Students will be separated by last name;

  • Students will only attend one day of orientation for this first week.

  • Students will attend all of their classes on a normal bell schedule.

  • Please review the guidelines below to see what day your child will attend.

  • Bring all school supplies on this day

    • Include a small, personal sized hand sanitizer in or attached backpack for frequent individual student use

  • This week will be the last chance to collect personal items from last year, items in lockers or pods after Friday the 21st will be recycled or donated.

Student Schedules and Back to School Nights:

  • Student schedules will be released in Infinite Campus tonight. Please be aware that it is possible for classes within your student's schedule could change over the next few days while we complete the balancing of Cohorts, but the team will stay the same.

  • Students will pick up a paper copy of their schedule next week as they enter into their pod areas.

Driving your kids to Cimarron?

We have a large amount of students that get dropped off every morning, and we need your help! Please keep in mind these three standards for drop-off to keep our line moving and prevent backup down Canterberry Parkway.

  • When dropping off and picking up students, please pull ahead and fill all empty spaces. This allows for a more efficient flow of traffic and supports speed and safety.

  • Make sure students get out as soon as the car stops, do not wait until you are at the entrance.

  • The bus loop parking lot is not to be used for student drop off and pick up. For student safety, cars are not allowed in the bus loop.

We look forward to welcoming your students into the building next week, thank you in advance for your help keeping traffic to a minimum!
