CIS Weekly Updates

2022-2023 #6 September 26-30


Picture Day is tomorrow! Students will take their picture some time in the morning. Please see the order form below if you need an additional copy. We will also have a makeup picture day in the future in case we have students absent.

We are working on ordering CIS shirts for ALL students. We are going to need to collect all the students' shirt sizes. Please talk to your student about the proper shirt size and record it on the FRIDAY page in their student planner. Shirt sizes run small so we recommend you order a size larger than usual. Once we are able to price the shirts and collect the sizes then an order will be placed.

Wednesday is our first night of conferences. Teachers have been working to schedule conferences and we have additional opportunities in October and November. We appreciate the opportunity to partner with families to help students learn and grow.

Have a GREAT week!

Brandon Cobb, Principal


Picture day will be Tuesday, September 27th. Order forms have been sent home and students may bring those forms with money enclosed the day of pictures, or families can order directly by going online to: or



David McCreary Assembly - TODAY

Today we had David McCreary visit CIS for a school-wide assembly. His message was to LEARN MORE, LAUGH MORE, & LOVE MORE. He combined his magic, humor and stories to help relay the message to our students and staff. Our students were energetic and receptive to his presentation.

5th Grade Movie Night - 2 WEEKS AWAY

On October 6th, Student Council will hold a movie night for all 5th grade students. The movie will take place immediately after school from 3:30--5:45 in the O.J. Work Auditorium. The movie that will be shown is Hocus Pocus 2 (2022), which is “PG” rated.

Not only will the students watch the movie, but they will also have pizza and water during the intermission! The cost for the event is $5.00, which will be collected in homerooms on the day of the movie.

If your child would like to attend, please complete the permission slip below and return it with your child to school on Thursday, October 6, 2022 along with the $5.00. The permission slip and money will be collected in homerooms. Please make sure your child has transportation home promptly at 5:45 p.m.


CIS is on Instagram

Check out the CIS Instagram at cisrocks. We are adding content to our story regularly to keep our community updated on the great things happening at our school.


Below is a calendar that shows our five day rotation for our encores. Students should know what encore (PE, Music/Band, Technology, Art or Library) they have each day so this calendar is to help families plan ahead.
Big picture


Our attendance clerk, Mrs. Long, is the contact person for calling off your student and any change of dismissal plans throughout the day. Please call the Attendance Line to reach her and/or leave a message. The phone number to her desk is 330-335-1481. We recommend you let the attendance desk/teacher know when your student is going to be absent, leaving early or arriving late. Letting us know when your child is going to leave early allows us to be prepared for when you arrive. Thank you for your efforts!


Our school district will follow these recommendations from the Ohio Department of Health.

ODH recommends schools follow general isolation procedures from the CDC for confirmed cases. If students or staff feel sick or suspect they might have COVID-19, they should stay home and take a rapid test. If positive, students and staff should stay home from school for at least 5 days and longer if necessary until fever-free for 24 hours (without the use of fever-reducing medication) and symptoms are improving. Additionally, after isolation ends, students and staff should continue to take precautions as they resume normal activities by wearing a mask for 5 days (or after two negative tests 48 hours apart).
