Colts Chronicle

A Cimarron Middle School community communication.

A Note from the Front Office

We wanted to take a moment to thank all of our families for their understanding and support as we navigate the re-entry of masks during the school day.

Our mission at Cimarron is to ensure that we all have a safe environment where each student can learn and socialize each day to reach their fullest potential. The Cimarron Staff's goal is to keep students in school. When masks are not worn, or worn improperly, we are required to report that to TriCounty Health.

We have been so excited to have all of us back in the building! There has been so much energy, positivity and involvement. We want to continue to be able to provide these experiences for students and families. If everyone can help to limit the spread of COVID, we can all remain in school and keep moving forward with our mission.

One of the things that we are trying to keep from happening is to have Tri County Health mandate that Cimarron has to start cohorting and separate teams, cancel our gatherings like assemblies, or more quarantines. The last thing we want to see is them shutting our doors to go to a remote setting.

We would like to ask for your support in reminding your students to wear a mask, unless your student has a medical exemption.

Our goal is to keep all students at Cimarron each and everyday and to keep the focus on teaching and learning.

As a reminder if your student is experiencing any symptoms please see the attached symptom screening document (link) for guidance on when it is safe to return to school after illness. This document is also available on the district website, under "Looking Forward"

School Support Campaign

Cimarron community: Yesterday we began our important annual School Support Campaign to raise money to build an on campus greenhouse that will benefit all our students. Last year we did not do a campaign due to Covid and we hope we can count on your support to help make Cimarron the best it can be. This is a Safe, Simple and Fun program. It is all online and there is no money to collect and nothing to deliver. We offer something for everyone, even an option for donations. Just check the attached flyer for all the details and please plan to participate by sharing our online store. We will have some fun rewards and spirit building class competitions to keep it fun for the students. Please click on the link below to get more information.

Our Next Restaurant Spirit night will be Tuesday, September 14th at Mici from 11AM to 8:30PM - Mention Cimarron when paying or show the virtual flyer. If ordering online, Use coupon Code CIMARRON so they know your order is to support the school.

Save the date for our annual event, Festival of Trees! It will be December 4th! We need businesses to participate. There will be a committee meeting this Saturday, 9/4 at 8am at Fika Idyllwilde. Take a look at the flyer below for more information!
