CIS Weekly Update
#9: October 18-22
This week report cards will be coming home on Friday! We are proud of our students for working through the first quarter even with all of the quarantining that happened. Our students are resilient and we know they will continue to do great things throughout the school year.
This Wednesday we have Unity Day (wear orange) and picture retake day. Obviously, we don't expect our students who are participating in picture retakes to wear all orange. However, they can bring a change of clothes if they wish. Students will have the opportunity to retake their picture in the morning only (before 10:30am).
We have an exciting PTO winter fundraiser happening now! Families have the opportunity to purchase plants from Foertmeyer and Sons and students can earn prizes (see the catalog). PTO will also be sponsoring a prize for the top class in 5th & 6th grade. Thank you for your support.
Lastly, we are permitting students to dress up as a book character or in a costume on Friday, October 29. Please read down below for additional details.
Have a WONDERFUL week!!
Brandon Cobb, Principal

PICTURE RETAKE DAY OCTOBER 20TH
CAVANAUGH PHOTOGRAPHY - OCTOBER 20TH RETAKE DAY
Picture Packages have been received and will be passed out early this week. IF your student needs a picture retake, please see instructions below from our photographer:
1) If your student was absent on the first picture day (Sept 14), there will be an ordering site available so you can order online. (You can enter your district site here: i.e. wadsworth.cavanaughphoto.com) Or, if you placed an order before the first picture day and didn’t realize your child would be absent, it will be honored.
2) If your student wants a retake, you must bring back the original picture packet that was ordered. Or, if you only ordered a hi-res digital file, please send a note in with your student stating that a hi-res digital file was purchased. If the packet or note is not returned, a new package will not be printed until the original is turned in. Original photos will be coming home before retake day.
3) If your student wants a retake AND you did not order the first time and do not plan on ordering in the future, then all YEARBOOK ONLY retakes are $5.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach us at 440-973-4390 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Unity Day, Wednesday, October 20 - WEAR ORANGE
Also, our counselors are sharing, on the morning announcements, helpful information about bullying and how to prevent it in our schools and community.
Character Dress Up/ Costume Day- Friday, October 29
We ask that students not wear masks and not bring accessories that will need to be carried around. Students should also avoid any types of weapons or other inappropriate costumes for school.
We hope this brings some joy on Friday, October 29 and look forward to seeing our students in their costumes!
Dress For The Weather
The Ohio School Safety Center (OSSC) has learned of a new October social media challenge that impacts Ohio schools and, specifically, staff and educators. Some TikTok users have devised a monthly list that includes various pranks or “challenges” to take place at school. For example, in recent weeks, there have been incidents of school vandalism as part of the "devious lick" challenge. The challenge encourages students to slap a teacher or staff member and run before being caught committing the assault. The incident must be also be filmed or the challenge does not “count.”
Unfortunately there are TikTok challenges for other months. I've attached a picture of a list of other possible TikTok challenges. If these challenges make their way into our school then we will be forced to hold students accountable for their actions that break our school code of conduct. Please talk to your child(ren) if you feel it is necessary. THANK YOU!
COVID-19 & ILLNESS AT CIS - CHANGES MADE OCTOBER 1
Effective October 1, the following change will be made to the quarantine guidelines followed by schools in Medina County (the rest of the flow chart remains unchanged):
If a student meets the criteria of a close contact from exposure in a school setting and the student is not fully vaccinated or was not wearing a face covering during the period of exposure, the student will be permitted to stay in school if the student wears a face covering during the quarantine period (provided the student continues to be symptom free). This change only impacts the ability of a student to attend school, it does not apply to extracurricular activities or other situations that are not school-related.
