Principal's Message

Dear Parents:

WELCOME to the NEW school year!   We are excited to see your child on the first day of school on August 12th.   Below I have listed some important information about CES:

  • Arrival:  Car Riders-- The time will be 7:50-8:20 AM  Morning Drop off will be longer this year to allow parents more time to drop their child off.  Parents need to remain in their car and in the drop off line.  Students will report directly to their classrooms. If your child needs breakfast, students will go by grade level to the cafeteria from their classroom.
  • Dismissal:  Car Riders -- We will begin dismissal at 2:40 PM.  Students will be assigned a space in the grassy area directly in front of the school by grade level.  Parents need to remain in their car and in the pick-up line.  Staff members will load students into cars by grade level.
    • To begin the year, drop off and pick up procedures will be slow.  Our focus will be to keep students safe during this time.
    • Students must wear masks during arrival and dismissal.
    • Parents must remain in their car and in the designated line.
  • Please communicate with your child’s teacher these two important details
  • First Day of School --Parents will not be able to come into the building on the first day of school due to social distancing.  Parents can log in to Harmony to see their child’s teacher or call the elementary school.  On the first day of school, we will have all staff members available to help your child get to their classroom.  Kindergarten parents will be receiving information about a special plan for our youngest students for the first day of school.
  • Virtual Open House -- On Friday, August 14th, your child will come home from school with instructions on how to be a part of our CES Open House.  This will be a FUN weekend activity for your family to enjoy!
  • Social Distancing -- A special sheet will be mailed home explaining how we plan to implement social distancing at CES.  Hopefully, after reading the sheet you will understand we are going to work hard to make school a safe and healthy place for your child!
  • Bus Information -- On Monday, August 10th, bus information will be available through your child’s Harmony account.  The bus routes have been updated so please check for bus driver and bus number.

In closing, I want to let ALL parents know that the entire staff at CES is ready to start school!   We too are apprehensive about what this school year will bring.  However, I am confident we will focus on your child and making sure CES is a POSITIVE place for your CHILD to GROW and LEARN!
