Did You Know?

We are working hard in our new normal.

We are trying to balance the needs of our students alongside the need to keep everyone safe.

We are constantly pivoting, readjusting, reevaluating, relearning, etc.

We are extremely thankful for the kind words, actions, and support from our families.

We appreciate your concerns and feedback. It stretches us.

We appreciate you listening to our concerns and feedback. It stretches you.

We did see your email and we will email you back.

We did get your call and we will call you back.

We love to see our students each day. They ignite passion. They remind us why we're here.

We see big smiles throughout the day.

We see resilience.

We've had some tears. (Adults..)

You've seen some tears. However, they are fine when they get here. Trust me!

We understand that this scenario is not perfect.

We are sometimes overwhelmed, tired, and a little stressed. But we realize it's what we signed up for. It's what we do. Nine days in and we are still standing.

We are teachers.

We are Crestline.

We are Cougar STRONG all day long.

School Pictures for Virtual Students

We can't wait to see you for picture day on Friday, September 4th. You should have received the schedule for your time. Please come to the front porch at CES at the assigned time and wait to be escorted to the auditorium. Mrs. Dickens will let your child know when to proceed to the auditorium. The students will exit the auditorium doors and may be picked up at the playground door. Please let your virtual teacher know if you will not be attending.


Be on the Lookout

Please check your emails soon for details on Virtual Parent Orientation! This will be a presentation dedicated to informing you of expectations for the year from your teacher.

Carpool News

Thank you for your help in observing arrival and dismissal procedures! We only have the following reminders this week:

  • Please make sure that students enter and/or exit vehicles on the passenger side. The only exception to this rule, is in front carpool. Students may enter and/or exit on the driver side with an adult.
  • Remember to use the crosswalks whenever crossing students. We are trying to set a good example.
