It has been a busy summer at school. The capital project is almost complete. All student bathrooms have new sinks, the atrium windows will no longer leak as there are new windows, flashing on the roof has been replaced to prevent leaking, the HVAC system has been updated, drainage in the cafeteria has been fixed, a new dishwasher has been installed, and the bus wash system has been replaced, just to mention a few of the items that were on the list. As I write this letter they are getting ready to rewire the building for Internet and wifi. By the time school opens on September 5th, the school will be ready to be filled with our students. We are looking forward to their arrival and anticipating a FANTASTIC year!
As with any new school year there have been a few upgrades/changes. Information will be sent out to all families on how to proceed.
All beginning of year paperwork will be completed online through FamilyID. Parents will create an online account to fill out all paperwork. Say goodbye to filling this paperwork out every year for each child.
We have been awarded the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the next four years. ALL students will receive free breakfast and lunch during the 2019-20 school year. In order for us to benefit from this program and other grants it is required that all families complete the Household Income Eligibility Form. All this information is confidential. It is important that all families return this completed form.
We are no longer using the student data system, PowerSchool. We have switched to SchoolTool. There will be a parent and student portal to view grades for students in grades 7-12.
It is imperative that if you are making a change in your child’s dismissal (PK-6) that you call the main office by 1:00 PM. We will not accept phone calls after that time. The safety of your children are of the most importance. Last minute changes make it hectic and create uncertainty at dismissal time...for the child, Mrs. Wilmot and the bus drivers. So please do not get upset if the request is denied if you call past 1:00. Thank you.
We have a few new faces to welcome to our school this fall. Our new secondary guidance counselor is Angeline Conte. Our secondary art teacher is Mrs. Jennifer LeJeune. In third grade we have Ms. Somer Timerman, 2nd grade Ms. Skyler Babcock and Mrs. Horender moved to fifth grade. Mrs. Shelby Kinsley-Tracy will be working as aide/bus monitor. We welcome them and are excited to have them join our CVS family. Our next newsletter will include a photograph and a little information about them.
We hope to see you all on Wednesday, September 25th, 6:00-7:30 for Open House. It is a wonderful time for your child(ren) to showcase their new room and their new teacher(s). Looking forward to seeing you!
I hope you were able to take advantage of the nice weather we were blessed with this summer. Let’s hope it extends into the fall. Until then, enjoy the remaining days with your family and friends. Find an event to culminate the summer. Enjoy!
