We've Got This!

Hello CMS Community,


This upcoming week we will start our first Virtual Class Live Meetings. At this point most families have been able to connect with their student's community teacher and if that has not been the case please call the main office to help with that connection. Below find our CMS Soft School Start calendar that includes the scheduled Virtual Class Live Meetings for the week of September 14, 2020. Please make sure that student login through clever to access the zoom (live meeting) link.


We hope that everyone is staying safe and taking care. Our CMS family is strong and resilient and as a learning community we are here to support our families in a variety of ways. If you need support with distance learning, resources that pertain to school, food or other please do not hesitate to call us and we will be able to navigate all this with you.


Take care and be safe!

NEW!!!! Chromebook Distribution Cancelled Monday & Tuesday

Hi CMS Community,


Due to continued poor air quality, all Centennial School District buildings are closed on Monday, September 14 and Tuesday September 15. All Chromebook distributions scheduled for Monday and Tuesday are tentatively rescheduled for Wednesday, September 16 for the same time slot that you had previously. We acknowledge the impact that this rescheduling may have for you and your family. Please give us a call if you are unable to pick up your Chromebook on Wednesday, and we will schedule another time for you to come in. Remember to leave a voice message to return your call promptly.


Live classes begin on Tuesday September 15th, as an introduction to distance learning. For students that do not have a device, teachers will post relevant information on Google Classroom for later review, and they will also review information with students during classes later this week.


Thank you,

CMS
