Cordelia Hills Update


Principals Message

This Thursday marks the end of our first trimester. Students have no school on Friday, 11/8 (teacher work day) and no school Monday, 11/11 (Veterans Day). Our teachers will be working hard to prepare report cards for my review and subsequent distribution to you.

Report Card conferences will take place November 18-November 22. Each of those days is a minimum day with school running from 8:20-11:50 each day (ALL K-5). TK continues on regular schedule. We look forward to meeting and working with you to review student progress and to make plans for the remaining two trimesters!

Scholastic Book Fair is Coming

Our Annual Scholastic Book Fair starts on November 18th and will last all week. The event is being held in the library. Final details (hours, payment options, etc.) will come soon. A sign-up genius for volunteers is below. We definitely need your help!!/showSignUp/60B0E45AFAF29ABFC1-fall1

Attendance Challenge 2019-2020

We are hosting an attendance challenge from October 21-November 14. One winning class with the BEST overall attendance percentage will get to have some fun on November 15th. Classes are voting on the option for our school. Also, any day we are 15 or less absent, the whole school will receive a prize the next day.

The last 3 weeks of attendance has been poorer this month. 8/20 days have been 96% or below and we've only hit our goal of 97.5% once this month. The research is clear. Attendance habits established in elementary school persist through the remainder of a students academic career. Please commit to being at school every single day that you are healthy!

Air Quality Guidelines

I am leaving this here. We don't anticipate any poor air quality or emergency situations this week but wanted to have the information available.

Check the "Current Conditions" at Air Now ( Our guidelines for school and school activities:

  • If we are in Green/Yellow - Outdoor activities as normal
  • If we are in Orange - Outdoor activities can happen, but should be limited. Keep a close eye on students who may fall in the "sensitive group" and provide them with alternative, inside activities. We are OK to have lunch outside, but PE should be conducted inside.
  • If we are in Red - We are OK to have activities/athletics, but only inside. Lunch/recess should take place indoors. No outside activities (including practice for athletics) should be taking place.
  • If you are in the Purple/Maroon - Students should remain indoors and District is contacted to discuss additional supports.

QUAD Stair Policy

Old Policy: Students should descend quad staircases using the side staircases (the ones with two railings).

New Policy: Students should descend quad staircases using any staircase with a railing. Please avoid using the large staircases when coming down. It isn't safe.

Free Breakfast for ALL students, 2019-2020

Starting this year, breakfast is free for all students (free, reduced, and paid accounts).

The Cover Letter in English and Spanish is linked here! Breakfast at CHE starts at approximately 7:50.

Please note that students reporting to breakfast must remain in the MPR for the entirety of the period before school. We ask that they avoid walking about campus and report directly to the breakfast.
