A Note from Mrs. Cockrell

Dear Chisholm Trail families,

Our Online Book Fair is open! See the link button below to order. We have added several link buttons below including Picture Orders and Change in Learning Platform.

Our first grading period is nearing the end. We are gearing up for an amazing second grading period, which begins on October 20th. We appreciate all you are doing to support your children and to help everyone stay safe and healthy.

Following all of the safety protocol is keeping us in school. If you have any questions about protocol, please reach out to your child's teacher. We must continue to keep children home who are exhibiting any symptoms. The children continue to do an absolutely amazing job of wearing their masks at school.

You have a great opportunity to support the health of our children by serving on the district's Student Health Advisory Committee. The time commitment is four virtual meetings per school year. If you are interested, please contact Mrs. Howland at

We are also looking for a community member and a parent to serve on our Campus Educational Improvement Committee. This time commitment is three virtual meetings. Please email me at, if you are interested. If you know of a community member (not a CTE parent) who might be interested in serving, please send me his or her contact information.

The link right below this letter is an opportunity for you to recognize the amazing things your children's teachers do. Take a minute and share some good things with us. Your encouragement is priceless.

Thank you for sharing your children with us!

Cari Cockrell

Big picture


Thank you for your continued support for our procedures this year. Children are arriving no earlier than 7:35 and entering the building safely, wearing masks.

We appreciate that you have your car tags hanging on your mirror at dismissal. In the case of a forgotten tag, we will do an ID check as efficiently as possible, but we may ask you to pull up ahead of the line and wait for a moment.

Helpful Reminders

Parents, please remember to label your children's belongings. (Water bottles, jackets, masks, lunch boxes, back packs, etc.) We want all items to stay with their rightful owners. When things are left behind, it is very tricky to return them if they are not labeled. Thank you for your help with this.
