FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S DESK

WE CAN DO THIS!

October 2020

CES Families,


We are all weary of social distancing and frequent hand washing, but we can’t let our guard down now. We recognize that all these safety measures and the sanitizing program at school are essential in fighting COVID-19. Our goal is to keep our students and faculty safe while remaining on campus with in-person learning. We greatly appreciate parents who have kept their children home when their child was not feeling well. Parents are urged to continue this practice to protect everyone in our school. . The steps we are taking at school are working to keep our students and faculty safe and healthy.


We will be completing our 1st quarter on Tuesday, October 28th. Your child's report cards will be sent home on Monday, October 2nd. Our dedicated teachers are here to help all our students. Please encourage your student to see their teacher for help if he/she is struggling. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact your child’s teachers.


On November 3rd, the district will be closed to students. Students will implement alternative methods of instruction (AMI). Information from your school building regarding AMI will be available. While students will not be on campus, they are responsible for activities or assignments from home.



We have made this decision because November 3rd is the general election day. CES will be used as a polling location. We will have many people visit the school from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Because it is a Presidential Election, a large turnout is anticipated. We have concerns in regards to traffic, parking, and additional people on our campus. The safety of our students is a top priority.

Thank you for all that you do to support, especially during these challenging times.



Yours in Education,

Betty Vassmer

CES Supt/Principal

Cowgill R-VI will celebrate Halloween with a parade of costumes and classroom parties. Your student may bring their costumes to school that day, parties will begin at 2:40. However, we will not have outside visitors this year, so please make sure your student can dress before the party. Please save some excitement for evening trick-or-treating by leaving hair and face paint at home. If students have extra objects like swords and daggers, they will have to turn them into the office until the parade.


We will be inviting parents to our Halloween parade, which will take place down Main Street. We will leave the school at 3:15 and walk down Main Street to the Methodist Church, where we will release for the end of the day.


Parents are welcome to participate in a trunk or treat the students as we make our way down Main Street. We currently have 38 students K through 8th. PK will be having a separate party on Thursday. We ask that you hand the treats to the teacher and not the students to help with social distancing. If you are interested in this, please let the school know, and we can get you more detailed information if needed.
