A Note from Mrs. Wilson
I hope that some of you are able to join me on Tuesday morning for our first coffee with the Principal! For this meeting, our focus will be on competencies here at CCS. I have asked Chris Motika, SAU 53 Curriculum to come talk with us, and to share how competencies came to be here at CCS, and what they offer to our students and our school.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Mrs. Jessica (Snider) Wilson, Principal
CCS ADMINISTRATION AND HEALTH OFFICE COVID-19 UPDATE
CCS ADMINISTRATION AND HEALTH OFFICE COVID-19 UPDATE:
We will be sending out all-school one call notifications to all families and staff if there is a confirmed case of COVID-19.
The manner in which we are notifying families of potential COVID-exposures is different this year.
If a student or staff member has had potential exposure of a positive COVID case in school:
Rather than sending out an all-school one call notification when there has been a potential exposure, we are sending out a letter through ALMA to the specific classes or individuals that would have had the potential exposure.
This is in compliance with a recommendation from the NH Department of Health and Human Services’ School and Childcare toolkit.
Please make sure your email is correct in Alma so you can receive these notifications.
Please review the DHHS COVID-19 Testing Sites:
UNFORTUNATELY, DHHS COVID-19 TESTING GUIDELINES HAVE NOT CHANGED THIS YEAR:
COVID-19 is most commonly spread through respiratory droplets when an infected person talks, coughs, sneezes or sings. The symptoms of the COVID-19 are:
Fever/chills (measured 100.0F)
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Runny nose or nasal congestion
Muscle or body aches
Fatigue or Headache
New loss of taste or smell
Nausea or vomiting
Please remember, If your child develops any symptoms of COVID-19,even one or mild symptoms, please isolate them at home and contact our health office for further guidance.
If you have any questions, please contact our School Nurse, Julie Strazzeri, 798-5651 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for all your support and understanding as we continue to work together to keep our school and community safe and healthy .

We do ask that you do continue to complete a free and reduced meal application, even though meals continue to be free for all students.
