A Note from Mrs. Cockrell

Dear Chisholm Trail families,

This is definitely a time for gratitude! We have so much for which to be thankful at Chisholm Trail. Thank you to those of you who hopped on our PTO zoom meetings this past Tuesday. Your presence and input is important to us. I also sent out FIFTEEN parent messages that you all sent to our teachers on the Chisholm Cheers link included below. Those words are priceless. You also filled up one cart of food donations as well as over $300 in cash donations to be given to First Refuge to help stock their food inventory. (The food drive/turkey feather contest continues at CTE through Thursday.)

As we continue to work hard on campus to keep our children and staff safe, we are asking you to be diligent in reporting to us when your student is either having symptoms, has been exposed, or has received a positive COVID-19 test result. Should you have questions, you may contact me at or our nurse, Courtney Lynch at

Thank you for sharing your children with us!

November Employee of the Month


Thank you for your continued support for our procedures this year. Children are arriving no earlier than 7:35 and entering the building safely, wearing masks.

We appreciate that you have your car tags hanging on your mirror at dismissal. In the case of a forgotten tag, we will do an ID check as efficiently as possible, but we may ask you to pull up ahead of the line and wait for a moment.

Helpful Reminders

Parents, please remember to LABEL your children's belongings. (Water bottles, jackets, masks, lunch boxes, back packs, etc.) We want all items to stay with their rightful owners. When things are left behind, it is very tricky to return them if they are not labeled. Thank you for your help with this.
