CCES Weekly Newsletter

For the week of: January 10th

Welcome Back!

Welcome Back! I hope everyone had a great winter break. I'm excited to have everyone back in the building for the second half of the school year!

Winter is definitely upon us! Please make sure you are sending your students with cold weather gear - heavy coats, hats and gloves. If the temperature (and wind chill) are not too cold, we still go outside for snack and recess. Thanks a bunch.

This coming week is a full week and then we have Monday, January 17th off in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.

Have a great weekend and see everyone Monday!

School Buses

Please talk with your students about school bus safety and following the rules on the bus:

  • stay in seats
  • no screaming
  • hands and feet to self
  • no eating or drinking
  • wear a mask at all times

The bus drivers have a very important job of getting the students to and from school safely and distractions need to be kept to a minimum.

Drop-Off and Pick-Up Procedures


  • Remember W. Second Street is a one way street going east.
  • Drop off and pickup will be on the south side of the building on W. Second Street. For the safety of all of the children that are being dropped off and picked up, please pull into the no parking zone (parallel to the road) and let your child exit the vehicle. We ask that you then exit the spot and pull forward onto the street again. Parents should not be exiting their vehicle this year, as it will be a continuous drop and go lane.


  • Pickup will also be along W. Second Street. It will be a pick up and go as well. There will be no parking, so the first several cars will be pulling into the no parking zone and waiting until dismissal. From there, cars will fill in as cars leave. Teachers will be out with their classrooms making sure that students are getting into their parents vehicle in a safe manner.


The Coal City PSO is looking for parents to assist with various activities and attend meetings. The PSO does so many great things for our schools including funding end of the year activities, providing various supplies and giving opportunities for families to engage outside of school hours. Please consider giving a little bit of your time to help out this organization. We are so thankful for all that they do!

Backpack Program

The Coal City Backpack Program is a non-for-profit organization that offers food to families in need at no cost. Students are given a bag of food to take home twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays. The bag of food is discretely place in the student's backpack. You can find more information at the following link:
