REMINDER: LAST CALL FOR SCHOOL PHOTOS - DECEMBER 2ND - CEDARHOME ELEMENTARY


Did you miss picture day at your school? Or maybe you missed retake day and you really wanted a better shot. Perhaps you need a better retake. Or maybe you just like having your picture taken and want an awesome photo of you in the yearbook!


We have the answer!

On Thursday, December 2nd from 4pm to 6pm, we have scheduled a Community Picture Day open to everyone in the community who needs a school picture. It is being hosted by Cedarhome Elementary this year and we thank them for helping us provide this picture taking opportunity.


This is by appointment only so please don't show up without one! The link below will allow you to select the time that works best for you! We of course will be following all safety protocols so come ready to go and don't leave your smile at home!

Hello Families,


As we head into what is for many the holiday season, I wanted to take a moment to express my appreciation. Our educators, students and families have done extraordinary work since school began in September. We opened buildings under significant safety restrictions set forth by the Department of Health. We have adjusted those restrictions multiple times and continue to monitor, adjust and respond to evolving guidelines from the state. I appreciate your understanding and patience as we do our best to keep schools open and ensure all students have access to high quality teaching and learning.


I was reminded recently that our school systems, over the last 20 months, have planned and executed safety strategies and learning methods in what would have ordinarily taken months in a matter of weeks. What we used to spend six months studying, piloting and refining, we are doing in two to three weeks. This speaks volumes about the resilience of our staff and students. Your support as parents and guardians is essential to our success. Thank you!


Snow Routes for 2021-2022

Our transportation department has released Snow Routes for the 2021-2022 School Year. Please take a moment to review your student(s) routes should bus routes be changed due to snow, ice or other wintery weather conditions.


Have a great weekend,


Deborah Rumbaugh, Ed.D.

Superintendent
