T.S. Cooley Elementary Weekly News

August 15, 2022

T.S. Cooley Community,

Thank you for your patience and understanding during the precautionary lockdown that took place this afternoon. Students were brought back into the building during dismissal at the recommendation of local law enforcement. Our students and staff were safe and calm inside our building as we followed all safety protocols that we have in place.

CPSB pushed out a message to all T.S. Cooley families to notify them of the situation. We invite you to contact our front office if you did not receive the message so we can verify the contact information that we have on file for your student.

As always, the safety of our T.S. Cooley community is our top priority. We will continue to evaluate our processes and ensure that we have everything in place for a safe and successful year ahead. We appreciate and value your continued support.

Emily Alcock, Principal
T.S. Cooley Elementary Magnet School
