Mr. O'Connell's Updates


Remote Learning

The waiver for CRCSD has been approved and school will resume on November 30th, unless you are informed otherwise.

Virtual Bookfair

Today is the final day of our Follett online book fair!

This is a terrific opportunity to buy great new books for your child's home library, for their classroom library and to support our Coolidge library! Books can be purchased online from our fair with a credit card or debit card. The books ordered will be shipped to Coolidge. We hope to have them in time to distribute them to staff and students the week of November 30-December 4. We will also contact families of virtual Coolidge learners that week to arrange a time to pick up their book orders from Coolidge.

How to buy books on teacher wish lists

With the holidays coming up, this would be a wonderful opportunity to buy new books for your loved ones. When you add a gift book to your online cart, you can select that it is a gift. We will send gift books home with your child in a sealed envelope addressed to you.

Many teachers have created wish lists on our online book fair. Purchasing books for classroom libraries is a great way to support your child's teacher and our library. We will place donation labels inside each book before delivering them to teachers.

The profits earned from our book fair will be used to purchase new library books. At Coolidge, most of our budget for new library books comes from book fairs, so please help it be a success. Thanks for supporting our readers with wonderful new books!


All students brought their devices home last Thursday as they are dismissed. Please see the agreement inside, complete and return when we return on the 30th. The charger, earbuds and log in information was also provided. Please keep these items in a safe place so they can be returned on the 30th.

If you are having technical difficulties...please contact us at school 558-2167 is the main office. If we are not able to help, you can also contact our district help desk at 558-2900.

Meals--at Coolidge

Like we did last spring, our Food and Nutrition Dept will be providing meals to students in our district. This fall we will have meals for pick up at Coolidge from 11 AM- 1 PM Monday-Friday. The meal will be prepared for the day and breakfast will also be included for the following day. Please come through the Coolidge horseshoe and stay in your vehicle and we will bring the meals out to your vehicle.

Classroom instruction

Your child's classroom teacher will provide for you links for your child to use to sign in for instruction. They will provide the schedule we will be using and what time various things will happen during the day. Specials teachers will be providing instruction also. If you child has other services like PACT, Special Education or ELL---these will be provided also and a link will be sent to the child and/or family to access. Please let us know if we can be of additional help. Please contact your child's teacher if you have questions.


Teachers will continue to host Parent/Teacher/Student conferences with their families. As the conferences are being done online, our teachers are excited to meet with you all! Thanks for making this time a priority in your afternoon/evening.
