O'Neil's News

Over the month of December, we have enjoyed many activities celebrating our CUES family. Students and staff have been sending messages of appreciation and kindness to one another. These messages have been read over the announcements and have enhanced the positive relationships in our building.


We would like to thank Mrs. Schatzle for her time, dedication, and positive energy in organizing our Holiday Giving Project. We held a successful food drive. Additionally, Mrs. Schatzle gathered organizations in our community to support families in need during the holidays. These families will receive food and gifts for their Christmas. We appreciate Mrs. Schatlze and the all of the community organizations for their hard work sharing resources with our community.


This will be our final newsletter for 2016. We are so grateful for this community and the outstanding students we have at CUES. The relationships we share with them are the foundation for our positive school culture. Thank you to all of our CUES families for your continued support.


I wish you all the best over the holidays and throughout the New Year.

Student Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

SAFETY is our top priority during pick up and drop off times. Please take a minute to review a few important items that will keep our children safe as they enter and exit our buildings.

1. If you transport your own child, please use the pick up and drop off lane (right lane in front of the school building. You may also pick up and drop off by parking in the lot at the south end of the CUES building. Please do not park in the middle lot (located between either building) before or after school to drop off or pick up your student(s).

2. Students are NEVER allowed to cross traffic to and from the middle lot before or after school. They must utilize the pick up and drop off lane or the south parking lot.

3. If you are picking your child up from school prior to dismissal, please come into the office to sign your child out.

4. If your child has a change in after school transportation, please contact the office by 2 pm.
