Principal's Message

We hope you and your family had a wonderful weekend. Our campus is excited to let you know that we will be hosting our annual Trunk or Treat event on Thursday, October 22nd from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in our bus loop off Martin Street. Our event will be different from the way we typically hold it due to safety protocols we must follow. Please note the changes that will be in place.


* Our event will be drive-thru only in our bus loop and walk-up's will not be allowed.


* A bag will be provided to each car as you enter our bus loop. Only one bag per vehicle will be allowed for staff to pass out treats.


* All staff participating in our event will be required to wear a mask and gloves while passing out treats to our visitors.


* As you receive treats from our staff we ask that you please wear a mask for the safety of everyone at the event.


*Trunk or Treat will take place from 6:00-7:00 p.m. while supplies last.


We are looking forward to a fun-filled event. Let's have a fantastic week of school.

Updated CCISD Covid-19 Self-Screener

Please note our district has updated our daily Covid-19 screener. Parents/guardians of Phase 1 and 2 students, please make sure and screen your child daily using the Covid-19 screener. If your child has any of the symptoms please keep your child home and call the school to inform us of your situation. If a child gets sick while on campus we will call the parent immediately for pick-up and will ensure the child is safely taken care of while minimizing exposure to other staff and students.

Breakfast and Lunch Menus for On Campus Learners

Please review the menu provided. If your child is not going to eat the school lunch we do encourage the use of packing a lunch in a bag that can be thrown away. Using a bag that can be thrown away limits the travel of items such as a lunch box going back and forth from home to school. Breakfast and lunch are free for all students.
