Welcome Back!

What a fantastic first two weeks of school we have here at CCS! We continue to thank our community for their patience, flexibility, and kindness and we work to chart the waters of the 2021-2022 school year.

We had quite a turn out here at CCS on Wednesday night for our Back to School BBQ, and it was amazing to see our community come back together after being apart for so long. Our field was full of laughter, a sense of community, and socialization. Thank you to everyone that came out to enjoy the meal donated by the Chichester PTO, cooked by our very own Chichester School Board, and set up by our staff. We hope that most people were able to explore your child's classroom, see the updates and improvements throughout the building, and sign up for parent conferences. We look forward to bringing back many of our past traditions throughout the school year.

Have a wonderful weekend, and as always, don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns that you may have.


Mrs. Jessica (Snider) Wilson, Principal

New Faces at CCS!

Please join us in welcoming some new faces here at CCS!

Grade 1, Carrie White (replacing Wendy Kneeland)

Grade 3, Jessica Martucci (replacing Jessica Merrill)

Grade 4, Mollie Morissette (replacing Amy Binder)

Special Education Case Manager, Kimberly Green (replacing Sky King)

Ms. Snider is now Mrs. Wilson

No, CCS did not get a new principal this summer. It's still me, just with a new last name! My husband Neil and I got married on September 4th, and I promise that this will be the last name change, ever. Thank you to those that have reached out with well-wishes and congratulations. Welcoming me into your community and seeing how people care for others here is truly one of the ways that makes Chichester such a special place. You'll start to slowly see email addresses and alerts with my new last name, but for now, you can continue to email me at

Student Transportation Forms

If you haven't already done so, please complete a transportation form for your child for the 21-22 school year. We have added this to our yearly forms for parents to complete, as it will make sure that we know where, and how, each child is going at the end of the school day. This form should be completed if even your child will be a car rider all year. If you need a hard copy sent home with your child, please contact Vicki Burke in the main office for assistance.

From the School Counselor, Mrs. Carrier

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! If you are returning to CCS we are very happy to see you again. If you are new to CCS welcome to our school community!

This year I have taken on a new role in our school community. In addition to being the School Counselor and the 504 Coordinator, I am not the McKinney Vento Homeless LIaison.

In this new role I am available to members of the Chichester School community who experience loss of housing at any time during the school year related to financial hardship. There are many resources and protections available to students and their families if they find themselves in this challenging position. Please reach out to me at 798-5651 or email if you have a concern for your family so that we can discuss your individual situation and needs. Our conversations remain strictly confidential. My goal is to ensure that your students remain in a consistent educational environment through the school year.

CCS Cafeteria and Food Service


This is a friendly reminder that breakfast and lunch are free for all students through this school year. Unfortunately, this does not include any snacks, slushies, waters, or extra milks. These items can be paid for through your child's Myschoolbucks account or you are welcome to send funds to school with your child.

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. Ravonne Eccleston, our Food Service Director, can answer specific questions that you may have. She can also help to get a hard copy of any forms to your child here at school.
