Cordelia Hills Update


Message from the Principal

Warmer, dry weather is on the way! I am positive that will make both students and teachers happy! While we are running into the last two months of school, I contemplate the words of a fellow administrator. "It's not too late" to spark learning, to make growth, to develop a deeper passion for learning. We look forward to working with you this final trimester!


Grades will be available Tuesday, March 19th on Illuminate. Conferences follow that with minimum days on March 20-22 (dismissal at 11:40 for all students except preschool).


Please remember that the daycare area near the baseball fields is for daycare buses only. Please avoid that area. Additionally, another reminder that the back entrance of campus is primarily for families that are walking in. Please avoid clogging courts and blocking driveways. We received two pointed messages from neighbors. We want to maintain a good relationship with our community. Thanks for your help!


District Calendar: The 2019-2020 calendar is out. Check it out here. Please do your best to plan vacations, appointments, times away from school around the school calendar. We need every student here everyday that they are healthy.
