Cimarron Middle School Newsletter - October 5, 2018
Colts Chronicle provides information to parents, students, staff, and community.
Fall break is a great time to reflect on our first quarter, and I am so proud of the accomplishments of our students!
Thank you for partnering with our staff to continue to provide learner-centered opportunities and resources for our students. Learning expeditions, field studies, technology, guest speakers, performing and visual arts, foreign language, athletics and clubs are just a few of the choice opportunities that allow us to meet the needs of all students at Cimarron.
This past Friday our students attend and participated in the Fall Be RED Assembly. There were class cheers, pep assembly style games, spirit sticks, and students were recognized as being Caught RED Handed. These students will be a part of this group and will develop character leadership skills and will promote the Be RED philosophy of Respect, Excellence, Determination.
On behalf of the the entire staff we appreciate your support and partnership, and look forward to a great second quarter at Cimarron!
Transportation Update Z-Pass+
Cimarron distributed new Zpasses to most students who requested a new Zpass during online check-in. Transportation has not received all the new passes for students who requested the new pass during August online check-in. If your student has not receive a pass and you requested a new pass, transportation has more that will be sent to schools in the next few weeks.
All bus riders will need the updated Zpass+
Reunification Drill at Cimarron
As you know, safety is our number one priority at Cimarron Middle School and in Douglas County School District. With that said, we are constantly monitoring physical safety for all students. This includes Standard Response Protocols (SRP) for Evacuation, Shelter in Place, Lockout and Lockdown. We have successfully completed two evacuation drills and one shelter in place drill so far this school year.
The first evacuation/reunification drill is scheduled for a date in second quarter. This reunification drill does not involve parent pick up. Students will learn about the expectations and their roles in evacuation and reunification through Advisement class lessons prior to the drill. This drill will last approximately 45 minutes and will be taking place at our regular evacuation locations. This will be a great opportunity for our students and staff to practice the reunification process in a purposeful and organized fashion. If a student needs to be picked up during this drill, we are going to ask you to participate in the reunification process. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding the evacuation and reunification drill. Thank you for your continued support of student safety at Cimarron Middle School.
