Good Morning Coolidge Families-
We are so excited to announce we will be holding our last Coolidge Cougar Pride Stride Walk-a-thon in a couple of weeks!! The walk will be held (THIS THURSDAY) May 20th we will start at 2:30! Please have your child wear their Coolidge Shirt or black and gold to show their spirit! Tennis shoes for walking would also be highly encouraged. We will walk in our masks and end up back on the blacktop for our final announcement and amount raised. Parents may join us on the grassy area near the sidewalks on Atwood, Crestridge or 1st Avenue to cheer us on, but may not walk with us this year. Thank you for your patience as we continue to follow the mitigation protocols from our district.

All library books were due last Monday, May 10th. If your library book is lost or damaged, please send exact cash or a check payable to "Coolidge School" to pay for it. The cost will be printed on overdue notices that Mrs. Messina has provided to your child's teacher. Thank you for returning your library books, so we can get them packed up to move to our new library at West Willow! Thanks so much! We have several classrooms who have returned all of their books! Congrats to Mr. Wibe, Mr. Lang, Mrs. Morningstar, Mrs. Bergert, Ms Blocker, Mrs. Christoffersen, Ms Lodge, and Mrs. Weller's classes for having all their books back!!!

We appreciate you contacting the Nurse (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) or Mr. O'Connell (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have been exposed or have tested positive for the virus while on break. This just keeps us informed and also helps to keep everyone healthy in return from break.
Newly released this morning:
Governor Kim Reynolds announced lifting Iowa mask rule, but CRCSD mask mandate remains within all school buildings and buses. Additionally, mitigation strategies remain for all school athletics and activities. You can view mask protocol on our Health and Safety site.
